NAME

       wihack - The wmii window hack

SYNOPSIS

       wihack  [-transient <window>] [-type <ewmh window type>] [-tags <tags>]
       <program>

DESCRIPTION

       wihack is a program which alters the windows created  by  an  arbitrary
       program.  It  has  the  name wihack because it is just that: a hack. It
       uses LD_PRELOAD to override certain Xlib calls and  add  properties  to
       newly created windows.

ARGUMENTS

       -transient <window>
              Marks  created  windows as transient for a given <window>.  This
              causes the new window to open in the floating layer of the  same
              tags as <window>.

       -type <ewmh window type>
              Sets  the  EWMH  window  type  of the created window to the type
              given. wmii understands the following types:

               dialog Opens in the floating layer.

               dock

               menu

               toolbar
                      Automatically opens in the floating layer. Does not have
                      a window border or titlebar.

               splash Automatically  floats and does not automatically receive
                      focus.

       -tags <tags>
              The created window opens on the given tags.

BUGS

       It is a hack.

       It doesn't work for setuid programs.

       It doesn't work for non-Xlib programs.
