NAME


herbstclient - sends commands to a running herbstluftwm instance via X

SYNOPSIS


herbstclient [OPTIONS] COMMAND [ARGS ...]

herbstclient [OPTIONS] [--wait|--idle] [FILTER ...]

DESCRIPTION


Sends a COMMAND with its (optional) arguments ARGS to a running herbstluftwm(1) instance
via Xlib. If COMMAND has an output, it is printed by herbstclient. If output does not end
with a newline, then a newline is added to improve readability.

See herbstluftwm(1) for a list of available COMMANDs and their ARGS.

If --wait or --idle is passed, then it waits for hooks from herbstluftwm. The hook is
printed, if it matches the optional FILTER. FILTERs are regular expressions. For a list of
available hooks see herbstluftwm(1).

OPTIONS


-n, --no-newline
Do not print a newline if output does not end with a newline.

-0, --print0
Use the null character as delimiter between the output of hooks.

-l, --last-arg
When using -i or -w, only print the last argument of the hook.

-i, --idle
Wait for hooks instead of executing commands.

-w, --wait
Same as --idle but exit after first --count hooks.

-c, --count COUNT
Let --wait exit after COUNT hooks were received and printed. The default of COUNT is
1.

-q, --quiet
Do not print error messages if herbstclient cannot connect to the running herbstluftwm
instance.

Print the herbstclient version. To get the herbstluftwm version, use herbstclient
