      1 swallow
      2 =======
      3 
      4 Description
      5 -----------
      6 This patch adds "window swallowing" to dwm as known from Plan 9's windowing
      7 system `rio`.
      8 
      9 Clients marked with `isterminal` in config.h swallow a window opened by any
     10 child process, e.g. running `xclock` in a terminal. Closing the `xclock` window
     11 restores the terminal window in the current position.
     12 
     13 This patch helps users spawning a lot of graphical programs from their command
     14 line by avoiding cluttering the screen with many unusable terminals. Being deep
     15 down in a directory hierarchy just does not make the use of dmenu feasible.

     17 Dependencies
     18 ------------
     19 * libxcb
     20 * Xlib-libxcb
     21 * xcb-res
     22 
     23 These dependencies are needed due to the use of the latest revision of the X
     24 Resource Extension which is unsupported in vanilla Xlib.

     35 Notes
     36 -----
     37 The window swallowing functionality requires `dwm` to walk the process tree,
     38 which is an inherently OS-specific task. Please contact one of the authors
     39 if you would like to help expand the list of supported operating systems.
     40 
     41 Only terminals created by local processes can swallow windows, and only windows
     42 created by local processes can be swallowed.
