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


INVOCATION
       NoClutter can be invoked by inserting the line 'Module NoClutter' in
       the .fvwmrc file. This can be placed on a line by itself, if NoClutter
       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 NoClutter.


CONFIGURATION OPTIONS
       NoClutter reads the same .fvwmrc file as fvwm reads when it starts up,
       and looks for lines similar to "*NoClutter 3600 Iconify". The format of
       these lines is "*NoClutter [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.
