FvwmClean - the FVWM desktop clutter reduction module


       FvwmClean  is  spawned by fvwm, so no command line invoca-
       tion will work.


       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 desk-

       FvwmClean reads the same .fvwmrc file as fvwm  reads  when
       it starts up, and looks for lines similar to "*FvwmNoClut-
       ter 3600 Iconify".


       The FvwmClean program, and  the  concept  for  interfacing
       this  module  to the Window Manager, are all original work

       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  key-
       word   FvwmClean  to OtherClutter. This way multiple clut-
       ter-reduction programs can be used.


       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


       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 com-
       mand, and time is the time in seconds between when a  win-
       dow looses focus and when the command is executed. At most
       3 actions can be specified.
