FvwmGtkDebug - graphical interactive fvwm module debugger
FvwmGtkDebug should be spawned by fvwm(1).
To run this module, place this command somewhere in the configuration:
To stop this module, just close the GUI window, the usual KillModule
You may also run this application as a regular program from the command
line shell. But the communication with fvwm is not established in this
dummy mode, so commands are not really sent and there are no real
events received. However certain activity is emulated using dummy
This module monitors all fvwm event information and shows it nicely in
the interactive gtk+ application. Good for debugging and educational
Among the features: command console with history and auto command help,
requesting to send back ConfigInfo (configuration of fvwm and all
modules), WindowList (information about all windows) or custom Reply.
The fvwm commands may be executed within the context of some window.
The context window may be optionally set on invocation, like: "Next
(Navigator) FvwmGtkDebug", and be set/unset interactively at any time.
There are several command line switches:
FvwmGtkDebug [ --mask mask ] [ --xmask mask ] [ --debug level ]
Long switches may be abbreviated to shorter switches.
-m|--mask mask - set the initial module mask, 31 bit integer. This mask
may be changed interactively at any time. By default almost all events
are monitored (except for some flood events like CONFIGURE_WINDOW or
FOCUS_WINDOW. The special value of -1 sets the maximal mask.
-x|--xmask mask - set the initial module extended mask, 31 bit integer.
This mask may be changed interactively at any time. By default almost
all events are monitored (except for some flood events like
ENTER_WINDOW or LEAVE_WINDOW. The special value of -1 sets the maximal
-d|--debug level - use the Perl library debugging mechanism. The useful
levels are 2 to 4.
