       xfm - file format for application window contents of xfm


       Xfm  -  the X file and application manager - has its own format to save the content of the
       application window, which is described in this file.


       One entry per line.  Lines starting with a hash (#) and empty  lines  are  ignored.   Each
       line  consists  out of six fields, separated by colons (:).  Backslashes and colons within
       those fields have to be escaped using backslashes.


       The label printed below the icon in the application window is the first part.

       Directory The second part is the directory the specified action is executed in.  An  empty
       string  is  treated  as the $HOME-directory, which is also substituted for a leading tilde
       followed by a slash (~/).

       If this line has the special drop_action LOAD, this is not the directory, but the next xfm
       file to display.

   empty compatibility field
       This field is only here for compatibility reasons.  It has to be empty.

       The  4th  field  is  the icon to show.  Unless this field is empty, xfm will search in the
       pixmapPath and the bitmapPath for this file and use it as icon for this  item.   The  icon
       has to be in XBM or in the XPM format.

   push action
       This  field  (the  5th) contains the action to execute when the specified field is double-
       clicked or otherwise activated.  Unless it is one of the special commands listed below, it
       is  given  as  a  whole  to  the  shell.   Any parts encapsulated in percent signs (%) are
       substituted with user input.  Default values can be specified with two hyphens (--) within
       the token.

       The special commands are:

       LOAD   The  directory  field  is  interpreted as filename of a xfm file which replaces the
              current contents of the application window. If the directory is the  special  value
              XFM-DEVICES,  the  content  of  the  application  window  are  generated out of the
              information of the xfm_dev(5) file instead.

       OPEN   The directory specified in the directory field is opened in a new file window.

       EDIT filename
              Start the default editor with the specified filename.

   drop action
       This field (the 6th) contains the action to execute if some files  are  dragged  from  the
       file  window  and  dropped into this item.  The command is given to a shell, and the files
       are given as arguments.


       Start a xterm with $HOME-directory as current directory.  The icon is  xterm.xpm.  Nothing
       can be dragged here.
       Xterm:::xterm.xpm:exec term:
       Open the special menu for showing mountable devices:
       Open a file window with the home directory:
       Open /floppy in a new file window:
       Execute an xterm with a user specified command:
       execute::::xterm -e %command--watch date%:
       Grab a screenshot when pushed, show drag&dropped images with xli:
       picture::::import `date +\%Y\%m\%d\%M\%H\%S.png`:xli "$@"
       Process dropped files with transfig:
       transfig:::app.xpm::transfig -L %Language\:--eepic% "$@"


              Unless  otherwise  specified  in  the X resources, this is the file opened when Xfm

              Unless otherwise specified in the  X  resources,  this  file  is  opened  when  the
              previous one fails.


       xfm(1), xfm_dev(5), xfmtype(1), xbm(5), xpm(5).
