       FvwmConsole - an fvwm command input interface


       Module FvwmConsole [options]

       FvwmConsole  can  only  be  invoked  by  fvwm.  Command line invocation of the FvwmConsole
       module will not work.


       FvwmConsole allows the user to type fvwm configuration commands  interactively,  and  have
       them executed immediately.  This tool is particularly useful for testing new configuration
       ideas, or for implementing temporary changes to your environment.


       FvwmConsole must be spawned as a module by fvwm.  FvwmConsole takes all xterm(1) options.

       FvwmConsole can be invoked by inserting the line  'Module  FvwmConsole'  in  the  .fvwm2rc
       file.   This  can  be  placed  on a line by itself, if FvwmConsole is to be spawned during
       fvwm's initialization, or can be bound to a menu or mouse button or keystroke to invoke it


       FvwmConsole uses xterm(1).  All resources set for xterm are inherited unless overridden by
       command line options.

              Module FvwmConsole -g 40x10 -fg black -bg green3

       A different terminal emulator can be specified with the -terminal option.   However,  only
       terminal  programs  that  understand  the options -name, -title and -e can be used. Debian
       specific: hardcoded xterm is changed to x-terminal-emulator. To be policy compliant  -name
       option is removed from default options and -title is changed to -T.

              Module FvwmConsole -terminal rxvt

       Previous  versions  of  FvwmConsole supported a -e option to choose a different front-end.
       Although this option is still provided for backwards compatibility its use is  discouraged
       unless you know exactly what you are doing.

              Module FvwmConsole -e


       Also X resources can be set in your ~/.Xdefaults file:

              FvwmConsole*VT100*geometry: 40x4
              FvwmConsole*font: 7x14

       Debian  specific: Since -name is not included by default, the default resource will be set
       by the x-terminal-emulator used and not be FvwmConsole. You can  change  the  resource  to
       match  the  terminal,  or  if  supported  by  the terminal, run FvwmConsole with the -name

              Module FvwmConsole -name FvwmConsole


       There are a few options.  If the GNU readline library is available, it can be used.

       If Perl5 is installed, can be used as  a  command  editor.   This  can  be
       accomplished  by  either  copying to fvwmlib directory as FvwmConsoleC or
       invoking FvwmConsole with -e option.  For example:

              Module FvwmConsole -e

       If neither one is installed, a simple input reading function which  doesn't  have  editing
       capabilities is used.

       GNU  readline  and have some frequent used commands in common as default.
       These commands are similar to emacs.  For more details, refer GNU readline  man  and  info
       pages, and man page.

              Ctrl-A  - beginning of line
              Ctrl-B  - previous char
              Ctrl-D  - delete char
              Ctrl-E  - end of line
              Ctrl-F  - next char
              Ctrl-H  - backspace
              Ctrl-K  - erase to the end of line
              Ctrl-N  - next line
              Ctrl-P  - previous line
              Ctrl-R  - search reverse
              Ctrl-U  - delete line
              Meta-B  - previous word
              Meta-F  - next word
              Esc <   - beginning of history
              Esc >   - end of history


       FvwmConsole can be stopped by entering the EOF character (usually CTRL-D).

       Note!  Do  not  use  the  "quit" command, as this is an fvwm builtin: typing "quit" at the
       FvwmConsole command line will cause fvwm to exit.
