aewm - An Exiguous Window Manager


aewm [options...]


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

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