       mwmrc - The M*tif Window	Manager	configuration file

       The  LessTif  window  manager  mwm supports both	a global configuration
       file  /etc/X11/mwm/system.mwmrc	and  a	 per-user   configation	  file

       Each  mwm configuration file consist of blocks of bindings.  Each block
       consists	of a block type	keyword, a name	and a set of  entries  between
       curly braces (`{' and '}').

       An  exclamation mark (`!') introduces a comment.	Comments extend	to the
       end of the line.

Block types
       There are three types of	blocks:

	      Menu bindings

	      Button bindings

	      Key bindings

Menu bindings
       Menu bindings are introduced by the Menu	keyword.  The generic form  of
       the entries is label mnemonic accelerator function .  Both mnemonic and
       accelerator may be empty.  For example:
	      "Foo bar"	_R   Alt<Key>F5	    f.restore

Button bindings
       Button bindings are introduced by the  Buttons  keyword.	  The  entries
       each are	Button name Context Function .	For example:
	      <Btn3Down>     icon|frame	    f.post_wmenu

Key bindings
       Key bindings are	very similar to	button bindings.  The entries each are
       Key name	Context	Function .  For	example:
	      Alt<Key>Tab    root|icon|window	 f.next_key

       A label is either a plain string, or a bitmap. Bitmaps are indicated as
       "@" followed by the filename.  For example:
	      mailer @fortytwo.bmp

       A  mnemonic is an underscore ("_") followed by a	single character.  For

       An accelerator is a key name.

Button name
       A button	name is	Btn followed by	the number (1..5) and an  action  (Up,
       Down, Click, Click2); for example:

       A  context  is a	single string consisting of bar	(`|') separated	object
       names (root, icon, menub, minimizeb, maximizeb ,	window,	title,	frame,
       border);	for example:

       A  function  is a string	starting with "f.". The	functions are: f.beep,
       f.circle_down, f.circle_up, f.desk, f.exec, f.focus_color, f.focus_key,
       f.goto_page,  f.kill,  f.lower, f.maximize,, f.minimize, f.move,
       f.next_cmap,  f.next_key,  f.nop,  f.normalize,	f.normalize_and_raise,
       f.pack_icons,   f.pass_keys,   f.post_wmenu,  f.prev_cmap,  f.prev_key,
       f.quit_mwm, f.raise, f.raise_lower, f.refresh, f.refresh_win, f.resize,
       f.restart, f.restore, f.restore_and_raise, f.screen, f.send_msg,	f.sep-
       arator, f.set_behavior, f.title,	f.toggle_page, f.window_list.

       For a complete example, check out /etc/X11/mwm/system.mwmrc or look  at
       the system.mwmrc	distributed with the LessTif sources.

       mwm  was	 written  by  the LessTif project, and
       others. This manpage was	written	by Ray Dassen _jdassen@debian.org_.
