      1 splitstatus
      2 ==========
      4 Description
      5 -----------
      6 Inspired by a reddit post I saw, from someone who had already implemented this behaviour.
      7 Code for this patch is based on their git repo.
      8 Unfortunately, I cannot find the reddit post I saw in the first place (it was from quite a while ago).
     10 This patch replaces the standard statusbar items (window name to the right of the tags, and status on the right) with two status items: one in the centre, and one on the right.
     12 The status is still set in the same way with `xsetroot`. However, for the splitstatus behaviour, a delimeter character is added (semicolon by default) to separate the centre status text from the right status text.
     14 Usage
     15 -----
     16 Status should be set in the form `<middle>;<right>` if semicolon is the delimeter character (set using the `splitdelim` variable in `config.def.h`).
     18 If the status text does not contain the delimeter character, the text will appear only in the centre of the bar.
     19 This can be changed by setting the option `splitstatus` to 0, which will put the status text on the right.
     21 Please note that this patch needs `rm config.h` to be added to the `Makefile`.
