NAME

       devilspie - perform actions on windows as they are created

SYNOPSIS

       devilspie [OPTION]...  configuration-files...

DESCRIPTION

       devilspie  is  a program which can detect windows as they are created, and perform actions
       on them if they match as set of criteria.

       The configuration files are a set of s-expressions.  For documentation and  examples,  see
       /usr/share/doc/devilspie/.

       Command-lines options:

       -a --apply-to-existing
              Apply to all existing windows instead of just new windows.

       -d --debug
              Output debug information

       -l --list-symbols
              List available symbols supported in input files.

       -s symname --symbol-doc=symname
               Get detailed help on symbol symname ('all' for all symbols).
