       aemenu, aepanel, aesession, switch-desk - programs for use with aewm(1x)


       aemenu [--config|-rc <file>] [-s|--switch]
       aepanel [--config|-rc <file>] [-b|--bottom]
       aedesk [-n <num>] [[+|-]<num>]


       The  programs  listed  above  provide  several  window  and session management features to
       complement aewm(1x).  aemenu and aepanel launch programs and raise  existing  windows  (or
       unhide  iconified ones).  aemenu uses a popup menu to accomplish this (the --switch option
       changes the function of this menu), while aepanel  stays  on  the  screen  inbetween  uses
       (launching and switching functionality are both always available).

       Each  program  comes  in  both  a  GTK+ and a Xaw version; aemenu is actually a symlink to
       either aemenu-gtk or aemenu-xaw (likewise for aepanel).

       The list of programs to be run by both clients is read from $HOME/.aewm/clientsrc.   There
       are two kinds of directives that may be used in this file:

              cmd "Description" "command"

       defines a command, which whill be interpreted by sh(1).

              menu "Title"

       defines  a submenu. The number of submenus that can be nested within each other is limited
       only by stack space. Double quotes may be included within quoted strings by escaping  them
       with  a  blackslash  (\"),  and  quotes  may be omitted around single-word descriptions or
       commands. Blank lines and lines starting with '#' are ignored.

       aesession is a do-nothing program; it will simply reap any children it inherits  and  then
       sleep.  By  ending  your  $HOME/.xsession  script  with "exec aesession", you can exit and
       restart aewm(1x) without killing your X session. The author does not really expect  anyone
       except WM hackers to find this useful.

       aedesk  changes to a new virtual desktop, specfied by num, or sets the number of available
       desktops, with -n.
