       fvwm-menu-xlock - builds xlock menu definition for fvwm


       fvwm-menu-xlock [ --help|-h|-? ] [ --version|-V ] [ --name|-n name ] [ --title|-t title ]
       [ --item format ] [ --icon-title icon ] [ --icon-item icon ] [ --special-first|-s ] [ --
       xlock params ]


       A simple perl script which parses xlock's output to build an fvwm menu definition of all
       xlock's modes.

       --name name
           define menu name in the following argument. Default is "XLockMenu"

       --title title
           define menu title in the following argument. Default is "XLock Modes".

       --item format
           define menu item format in the following argument, default is '%n\t(%d)'. TAB can be
           specified as '\t', but in .fvwm2rc you should specify a double backslash or a real

           Format specifiers:

             %n - mode name
             %d - mode description
             %D - mode description without "Shows " prefix if any

           These specifiers can receive an optional integer size, positive for right adjusted
           string or negative for left adjusted, example: %8x; and optional *num or *-num, which
           means to leave only the first or last (if minus) num of chars, the num must be greater
           than 3, since the striped part is replaced with "...", example: %*30x. Both can be
           combined: %-10*-20x, this instructs to get only the 20 last characters, but if the
           length is less then 10 - to fill with up to 10 spaces on the right.

       --icon-title icon
       --icon-item icon
           define menu icon for title and regular item accordingly. Default is no menu icons
           (equivalent to an empty icon argument).

           define icon names suitable for use with wm-icons package. Currently this is equivalent
           to: --icon-title '' --icon-item menu/lock.xpm.

           instructs to include special modes (usually black, bomb and random) first.

       Option parameters can be specified either using '=' or in the next argument. Short options
       are ok if not ambiguous: -h, -t; but be careful with short options, what is now
       unambiguous, can became ambiguous in the next versions.

       Additional arguments (after --) will be passed to xlock.

       Please see the xlock(1) man page for the xlock options.


       Add these lines to your fvwm configuration file:

         PipeRead 'fvwm-menu-xlock --name MenuSSaver --title "Screensaver" \
           --icon-item mini-bball.xpm --special-first -- -nice 19 -nolock'
         PipeRead 'fvwm-menu-xlock --name MenuSLock --title "Lock Screen" \
           --icon-item mini-rball.xpm --special-first -- -nice 19'
         AddToMenu "Utilities" "Screensaver%mini-monitor.xpm%" Popup MenuSSaver
         AddToMenu "Utilities" "Screenlock%mini-lock.xpm%"     Popup MenuSLock

       Depends on the output of xlock. Will produce an empty menu if the structure of the output
       is changed.
