AECLIENTS(1x)                                                    AECLIENTS(1x)

       aemenu, aepanel, aesession, switch-desk - programs for use with

       aemenu [--config|-rc <file>] [-s|--switch]
       aepanel [--config|-rc <file>] [-b|--bottom]
       aedesk [-n <num>] [[+|-]<num>]

       The programs listed above provide several window and session management
       features to complement aewm(1x).  aemenu and aepanel launch programs
       and raise existing windows (or unhide iconified ones).  aemenu uses a
       popup menu to accomplish this (the --switch option changes the function
       of this menu), while aepanel stays on the screen inbetween uses
       (launching and switching functionality are both always available).

       Each program comes in both a GTK+ and a Xaw version; aemenu is actually
       a symlink to either aemenu-gtk or aemenu-xaw (likewise for aepanel).

       The list of programs to be run by both clients is read from
       $HOME/.aewm/clientsrc.  There are two kinds of directives that may be
       used in this file:

              cmd "Description" "command"

       defines a command, which whill be interpreted by sh(1).

              menu "Title"

       defines a submenu. The number of submenus that can be nested within
       each other is limited only by stack space. Double quotes may be
       included within quoted strings by escaping them with a blackslash (\"),
       and quotes may be omitted around single-word descriptions or commands.
       Blank lines and lines starting with '#' are ignored.

       aesession is a do-nothing program; it will simply reap any children it
       inherits and then sleep. By ending your $HOME/.xsession script with
       "exec aesession", you can exit and restart aewm(1x) without killing
       your X session. The author does not really expect anyone except WM
       hackers to find this useful.

       aedesk changes to a new virtual desktop, specfied by num, or sets the
       number of available desktops, with -n.
