DESCRIPTION

       FvwmConsoleC.pl  offers editing capabilities  while  the  user  is entering  the line.  By
       default, the line editing  commands  are  similar  to  those  of  emacs.  It  also  offers
       substitution , which replaces a pattern to a string before it sends the command.

CONFIGURATION

       The key binding can be overridden or defined in fvwm module configuration.

              *FvwmConsole: Key \ck prev_line

       Non-space  character  sequence  need  not  be quoted.  In order to undefine, omit the last
       argument.

              *FvwmConsole: Key \ck

       Note that non-meta character is case sensitive.  \c means control key,  \e  means  escape,
       and \m is alt key.
       It also accepts Subst configuration. Users often input long fvwm command repeatedly. Subst
       will replace particular input sequence to user defined string. Example:

              *FvwmConsole: Subst '^bigx' 'Exec xterm -g  120x60+0+0  -fn  10x20  -fg  black  -bg
              lemonchiffon'

       Typing  'bigx<return>' in FvwmConsole will launch xterm. '^' denotes the beginning of line
       in regular expression.  ´pl´ in the middle of the command will not be  replaced.  Although
       the  format  looks  different,  it  takes Perl regular expression.  It just uses single or
       double quote as the delimiter.  Single or double quotes have no difference, although  they
       have to match, and cannot include itself in the string.

              *FvwmConsole: Subst '^g\s*(\d+)' 'Desk 0 0\nGotoPage 0 $1\nFocus'

       Entering 'g4' or 'g  4' will jump to desk 0 page 0 4 and focus.

INVOCATION

       FvwmConsoleC.pl should be invoked by FvwmConsole.
