NAME
       wmmenugen - Window Maker	PropList menu generator

SYNOPSIS
       wmmenugen     [options...]      -parser=_name_	  fspec	    [fspec...]
       [-parser=_name_ fspec [fspec...]...]

DESCRIPTION
       wmmenugen generates a menu in the PropList format for Window Maker from
       the  input  file	fspec.	In the case where fspec	is a directory instead
       of a file, then wmmenugen will read all the files present in the	 hier-
       archy of	this directory.

OPTIONS
       --help, -h
	      print a help message with	the list of options

       -parser
	      specify the format of the	file to	be parsed

       --version
	      print the	version	of Window Maker	from which the program comes

PARSERS
       wmmenugen supports these	file formats for input files:

       wmconfig
	      the format of the	menu generation	tool for X of the same name

       xdg    the format of the	menu specification as defined by the FreeDesk-
	      top standard, currently at version 1.1

RETURN VALUE
       The exit	status from the	wmmenugen command provides information for the
       caller:

       0      when the PropList	menu was successfully generated	on stdout.

       1      when a fspec caused a problem (non readable file,	...)

       2      the arguments of the command line	where not recognised

       3      the  program met an unexpected menu structure; you probably want
	      to look at the section BUGS below.

BUGS
       If you get the exit status 3 with the unclear error message  about  un-
       processed  levels on the	stack, you encountered a limitation of wmmenu-
       gen.  It	would be a good	idea to	prepare	an archive with	the files  in-
       criminated  and	submit	them  to  the mailing list (wmaker-dev@google-
       groups.com) with	you command line, so the team can  work	 on  improving
       the behaviour of	the program on this case.
