       xev - print contents of X events

       xev   [-display	 displayname]	[-geometry   geom]  [-bw  pixels]  [-bs  {NotUseful,When-
       Mapped,Always}] [-id windowid] [-s] [-name string] [-rv]

       Xev creates a window and then asks the X server to send it events whenever  anything  hap-
       pens  to  the  window (such as being moved, resized, typed in, clicked in, etc.).  You can
       also attach it to an existing window.  It is useful for seeing what causes events to occur
       and to display the information that they contain.

       -display display
	       This option specifies the X server to contact.

       -geometry geom
	       This option specifies the size and/or location of the window.

       -bw pixels
	       This option specifies the border width for the window.

       -bs {NotUseful,WhenMapped,Always}
	       This  option specifies what kind of backing store to give the window.  The default
	       is NotUseful.

       -id windowid
	       This option specifies that the window with  the	given  id  should  be  monitored,
	       instead of creating a new window.

       -s      This option specifies that save-unders should be enabled on the window.

       -name string
	       This option specifies the name to assign to the created window.

       -rv     This option specifies that the window should be in reverse video.
