       getstyle  -  dumps the current Window Maker style related configuration or creates a theme


       getstyle [-t|--theme-options] [-p|--pack] [style file]


       getstyle can either dump the current Window Maker style related configuration  information
       to  a  file/stdout or create a self-contained theme pack. A theme pack is a directory that
       contains everything that is needed  for  a  redistributable  theme,  including  the  style
       information and pixmaps used by it.

       Note that style information stored in the global configuration of the system is not read.


       --help print a help message with the list of options.

       --pack or -p
              creates  a  theme  pack  in the directory named by the theme name appended with the
              .themed suffix.

       --theme-options or -t
              dumps theme related information too, which includes the  root  background  texture.
              This option is always enabled when the -p option is used.

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


       The following options are stored by default: TitleJustify, ClipTitleFont, WindowTitleFont,
       MenuTitleFont,    MenuTextFont,    IconTitleFont,    LargeDisplayFont,     HighlightColor,
       HighlightTextColor,    ClipTitleColor,    CClipTitleColor,    FTitleColor,    PTitleColor,
       UTitleColor,   FTitleBack,   PTitleBack,   UTitleBack,   ResizebarBack,    MenuTitleColor,
       MenuTextColor,  MenuDisabledColor,  MenuTitleBack, MenuTextBack, IconBack, IconTitleColor,
       IconTitleBack, FrameBorderWidth,  FrameBorderColor,  FrameSelectedBorderColor,  MenuStyle,
       WindowTitleExtendSpace, MenuTitleExtendSpace, and MenuTextExtendSpace.

       If  either  -t  or  --theme-options  is  specified,  in  addition to the previous options,
       WorkspaceBack is  also  stored,  along  with  any  user-definable  mouse  cursor  settings
       (NormalCursor,     ArrowCursor,     MoveCursor,     ResizeCursor,     TopLeftResizeCursor,
       TopRightResizeCursor,           BottomLeftResizeCursor,           BottomRightResizeCursor,
       VerticalResizeCursor,   HorizontalResizeCursor,  WaitCursor,  QuestionCursor,  TextCursor,
       SelectCursor) that are present.


              specifies the initial path for the Defaults directory. "Defaults/" is  appended  to
              this variable to determine the actual location of the databases. If the variable is
              not set, it defaults to "~/GNUstep"


              This is the actual file that gets written.
