NAME

       subtler - a commandline interface for subtle

SYNOPSIS

       subtler [GENERIC|MODIFIER] GROUP ACTION [ARG1] [ARG2]

DESCRIPTION

       subtler is a commandline tool, that allows interacting with a EWMH/NetWM compatible window
       manager and especially with subtle(1) from a shell.

       The arguments of subtler are quite complex and allow a variety of spellings and  different
       number  of arguments. Most of the commands require at least one argument and return output
       of following format:

FORMAT

INPUT

       ·   DISPLAY :<display number>

       ·   ID <number>

       ·   GEOMETRY <x>x<y>+<width>+<height>

       ·   NAME <string|number>

       ·   DATA <string|number>

       ·   PATTERN
           Matching works either via plaintext, regex(7), id or window id  if  applicable.  If  a
           pattern matches more than once ALL matches are used.

           If the PATTERN is - subtler will read from stdin.

OUTPUT

       ·   Client  listing  <window  id>  <visibility>  <view  id>  <geometry>  <gravity> <flags>
           <instance name> (<class name>)

       ·   Gravity listing <gravity id> <geometry>

       ·   Screen listing <screen id> <geometry>

       ·   Tag listing <tag name>

       ·   Tray listing <window id> <instance name> (<class name>)

       ·   View listing <window id> <visibility> <view id> <view name>

FIELDS

       ·   <window id> Numeric (hex) id (e.g. 0xa00009)

       ·   <visibility> - = not visible, * = visible

       ·   <view id> Numeric id (e.g. 5)

       ·   <geometry> x x y + width + height

       ·   <flags> - = not set, + = fullscreen, ^ = float, * = stick, ~ = resize, = = zaphod, ! =
           fixed

       ·   <instance name> Window instance/resource name

       ·   <class name> Window class name

       ·   <gravity id> Numeric id of gravity (e.g. 2)

       ·   <screen id> Numeric id of a screen (e.g. 1)

       ·   <tag name> Name of a tag (e.g. terms)

OPTIONS

           Examples:
