NAME
FvwmClean - the FVWM desktop clutter reduction module SYNOPSIS
FvwmClean is spawned by fvwm, so no command line invocation will work. DESCRIPTION
The FvwmClean module performs actions on windows which have not had the keyboard focus for a specific length of time. This is intended to help alleviate the problem of leaving programs running in unused portions of your desktop. FvwmClean reads the same .fvwmrc file as fvwm reads when it starts up, and looks for lines similar to "*FvwmNoClutter 3600 Iconify". COPYRIGHTS
The FvwmClean program, and the concept for interfacing this module to the Window Manager, are all original work by Robert Nation Copyright 1994, Robert Nation. No guarantees or warranties or anything are provided or implied in any way whatsoever. Use this program at your own risk. Permission to use this program for any purpose is given, as long as the copyright is kept intact. INITIALIZATION
During initialization, FvwmClean will eventually search a configuration file which describes the time-outs and actions to take. The con- figuration file is the same file that fvwm used during initialization. If the FvwmClean executable is linked to another name, ie ln -s FvwmClean OtherClutter, then another module called OtherClutter can be started, with a completely different configuration than FvwmClean, simply by changing the keyword FvwmClean to OtherClutter. This way mul- tiple clutter-reduction programs can be used. INVOCATION
FvwmClean can be invoked by inserting the line 'Module FvwmClean' in the .fvwmrc file. This can be placed on a line by itself, if FvwmClean is to be spawned during fvwm's initialization, or can be bound to a menu or mouse button or keystroke to invoke it later. Fvwm will search directory specified in the ModulePath configuration option to attempt to locate FvwmClean. CONFIGURATION OPTIONS
FvwmClean reads the same .fvwmrc file as fvwm reads when it starts up, and looks for lines similar to "*FvwmClean 3600 Iconify". The format of these lines is "*FvwmClean [time] [command]", where command is any fvwm built-in command, and time is the time in seconds between when a window looses focus and when the command is executed. At most 3 actions can be specified. AUTHOR

NAME
FvwmSave - the FVWM desktop-layout saving module SYNOPSIS
FvwmSave is spawned by fvwm, so no command line invocation will work. DESCRIPTION
When called, this module will attempt to save your current desktop layout into a file called new.xinitrc. Ideally, this file will look just like .xinitrc, but in reality, you will have to edit it to get a usable configuration, so be sure to keep a backup of your old .xinitrc. Your applications must supply certain hints to the X window system. Emacs, for example, does not, so FvwmSave can't get any information from it. Also, FvwmSave assumes that certain command line options are globally accepted by applications, which may not be the case. COPYRIGHTS
