       xmonad - a tiling window manager

       xmonad  is  a minimalist tiling window manager for X, written in Haskell.  Windows are managed using automatic layout algorithms, which can
       be dynamically reconfigured.  At any time windows are arranged so as to maximize the use of screen real estate.	All features of the window
       manager	are  accessible  purely from the keyboard: a mouse is entirely optional.  xmonad is configured in Haskell, and custom layout algo-
       rithms may be implemented by the user in config files.  A principle of xmonad is predictability: the user should know in advance  precisely
       the window arrangement that will result from any action.

       By  default,  xmonad  provides three layout algorithms: tall, wide and fullscreen.  In tall or wide mode, windows are tiled and arranged to
       prevent overlap and maximize screen use.  Sets of windows are grouped together on virtual screens, and each screen retains its own  layout,
       which may be reconfigured dynamically.  Multiple physical monitors are supported via Xinerama, allowing simultaneous display of a number of

       By utilizing the expressivity of a modern functional language with a rich static type system, xmonad provides a complete, featureful window
       manager	in  less  than	1200 lines of code, with an emphasis on correctness and robustness.  Internal properties of the window manager are
       checked using a combination of static guarantees provided by the type system, and type-based automated testing.	A benefit of this is  that
       the code is simple to understand, and easy to modify.

       xmonad  places  each  window  into a "workspace".  Each workspace can have any number of windows, which you can cycle though with mod-j and
       mod-k.  Windows are either displayed full screen, tiled horizontally, or tiled vertically.  You can toggle the layout mode with	mod-space,
       which will cycle through the available modes.

       You  can switch to workspace N with mod-N.  For example, to switch to workspace 5, you would press mod-5.  Similarly, you can move the cur-
       rent window to another workspace with mod-shift-N.

       When running with multiple monitors (Xinerama), each screen has exactly 1 workspace visible.  mod-{w,e,r} switch the focus between screens,
       while  shift-mod-{w,e,r}  move the current window to that screen.  When xmonad starts, workspace 1 is on screen 1, workspace 2 is on screen
       2, etc.	When switching workspaces to one that is already visible, the current and visible workspaces are swapped.

       xmonad has several flags which you may pass to the executable.  These flags are:

	      Recompiles your configuration in ~/.xmonad/xmonad.hs

	      Causes the currently running xmonad process to restart

	      Replace the current window manager with xmonad

	      Display version of xmonad

	      Display detailed version of xmonad

   Default keyboard bindings
	      Launch terminal

       mod-p  Launch dmenu

	      Launch gmrun

	      Close the focused window

	      Rotate through the available layout algorithms

	      Reset the layouts on the current workspace to default

       mod-n  Resize viewed windows to the correct size

	      Move focus to the next window

	      Move focus to the previous window

       mod-j  Move focus to the next window

       mod-k  Move focus to the previous window

       mod-m  Move focus to the master window

	      Swap the focused window and the master window

	      Swap the focused window with the next window

	      Swap the focused window with the previous window

       mod-h  Shrink the master area

       mod-l  Expand the master area

       mod-t  Push window back into tiling

	      Increment the number of windows in the master area

	      Deincrement the number of windows in the master area

       mod-b  Toggle the status bar gap

	      Quit xmonad

       mod-q  Restart xmonad

	      Switch to workspace N

	      Move client to workspace N

	      Switch to physical/Xinerama screens 1, 2, or 3

	      Move client to screen 1, 2, or 3

	      Set the window to floating mode and move by dragging

	      Raise the window to the top of the stack

	      Set the window to floating mode and resize by dragging

       To use xmonad as your window manager add to your ~/.xinitrc file:

	      exec xmonad

       xmonad is customized in ~/.xmonad/xmonad.hs, and then restarting with mod-q.

       You can find many extensions to the core feature set in the xmonad- contrib  package,  available  through  your	package  manager  or  from (

   Modular Configuration
       As  of  xmonad-0.9, any additional Haskell modules may be placed in ~/.xmonad/lib/ are available in GHC's searchpath.  Hierarchical modules
       are supported: for example, the file ~/.xmonad/lib/XMonad/Stack/MyAdditions.hs could contain:

	      module XMonad.Stack.MyAdditions (function1) where
		  function1 = error "function1: Not implemented yet!"

       Your xmonad.hs may then import XMonad.Stack.MyAdditions as if that module was contained within xmonad or xmonad-contrib.

       Probably.  If you find any, please report them to the bugtracker (
