FvwmClean(1.20)                                                FvwmClean(1.20)



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
       configuration 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
       multiple 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.
