FvwmIdent(1.20)                                                  FvwmIdent(1.20)



NAME
       FvwmIdent - the FVWM identify-window module

SYNOPSIS
       FvwmIdent is spawned by fvwm, so no command line invocation will work.


DESCRIPTION
       The FvwmIdent module prompts the user to select a target window, if the
       module was not launched from within a window context in Fvwm.  After
       that, it pops up a window with information about the window which was
       selected.

       FvwmIdent reads the same .fvwmrc file as fvwm reads when it starts up,
       and looks for lines similar to "*FvwmIdentFore green".


COPYRIGHTS
       The FvwmIdent program, and the concept for interfacing this module to the
       Window Manager, are all original work by Robert Nation Nobutaka Suzuki.

       Copyright 1994, Robert Nation and Nobutaka Suzuki. 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, FvwmIdent will eventually search a configuration
       file which describes the colors and font to use.  The configuration file
       is the same file that fvwm used during initialization.

       If the FvwmIdent executable is linked to another name, ie ln -s FvwmIdent
       MoreIdentify, then another module called MoreIdentify can be started,
       with a completely different configuration than FvwmIdent, simply by
       changing the keyword  FvwmIdent to MoreIdentify. This way multiple
       clutter-reduction programs can be used.


INVOCATION
       FvwmIdent can be invoked by binding the action 'Module FvwmIdent' to a
       menu or key-stroke in the .fvwmrc file.  Fvwm will search directory
       specified in the ModulePath configuration option to attempt to locate
       FvwmIdent. Although nothing keeps you from launching FvwmIdent at start-
       up time, you probably don't want to.


CONFIGURATION OPTIONS
       FvwmIdent reads the same .fvwmrc file as fvwm reads when it starts up,
       and looks for lines as listed below:


       *FvwmIdentFore color
              Tells the module to use color instead of black for text.


       *FvwmIdentBack color
              Tells the module to use color instead of white for the window
              background.


       *FvwmIdentFont fontname
              Tells the module to use fontname instead of fixed for text.
