NAME
       aewm - a minimalist window manager for X11

SYNOPSIS
       aewm [options...]

DESCRIPTION
       aewm is an X11 window manager with very few features. It draws a small
       titlebar above top-level windows, allows you to manipulate them with the
       mouse, and starts other programs when the root window is clicked. That's
       also about all it does, so don't expect anything nifty.

       The titlebar contains a small box in the upper right corner. Clicking the
       1st, 2nd, or 3rd buttons on the main area of the titlebar will raise,
       move, or lower the window, respectively. Clicking on the box will
       respectively hide, resize, or close the window.

       By default, clicking on the root window with button 1 will run
       aemenu(1x), button 2 will run aemenu --switch, and button 3 will start a
       new xterm(1x).  aemenu (or another equivalent program) is required to
       unhide hidden windows; aewm does not do this itself.
