       wmpuzzle - WindowMaker dock app 4x4 puzzle


       wmpuzzle [options] [xpm image file]


       wmpuzzle  provides a 4x4 puzzle on a 64x64 mini window.  It is designed
       to work with the WindowMaker dock, but  will  work  with  other  window
       managers as well.


       -h, --help
              displays a command line summary.

       -a, --auto-save
              automatically save the puzzle state on program exit.

       -k, --keyboard
              enable use of the keyboard for arrow-key navigation.

       -s, --shuffle=count
              shuffle  the  image  count  times,  defaults  to 2000.  Using -s
              prevents loading the saved state from the resource file.

       -v, --version
              displays the version number.

              Set the display to use, e.g. --display=:0.0.

              Set the position of the dock app, e.g.  --geometry=+10+10.  Note
              that the size (64x64) is hard-coded and cannot be changed.

       The  image file must be an XPM file with minimum (and recommended) size
       of 48x48 pixels. If it is larger then the upper  left  corner  will  be


       Left  mouse click moves the puzzle tiles, right click saves the current
       state and middle click recovers the last saved state. If  -k  has  been
       specified the arrow keys and key s and key r will do as well.

       If the picture has been completed the last element will be shown.


              contains  the  puzzling  state of the images. The basename of an
              image file will be used as its  identifier.  Use  option  -s  to
              ignore this file on startup.


       When  wmpuzzle  complains  about  not  enough free color symbols that’s
       because it needs to add six colors to the XPM’s color table  and  found
       no  free  symbols  using  the according number of characters per pixel.
       Try to find some unused entries, delete them and correct  the  size  of
       the  color  table  (the third number in the first line), or enlarge the
       number of characters per pixel using some imaging program.
