DESCRIPTION
       Nezd  is	 a general-purpose messaging and notification program for X11,

       dow  managers  like  dwm,  wmii and xmonad though it will work with any
       windowmanger.

       Nezd expects the	status message on its standard input, and uses a  cus-

       meters and such). See README for	detailed usage and scripting  instruc-
       tions.
