wmmenugen - Window Maker PropList menu generator
wmmenugen [options...] -parser=<name> fspec [fspec...] [-parser=<name> fspec [fspec...]...]
wmmenugen generates a menu in the PropList format for Window Maker from the input file fspec. In the case where fspec is a directory instead of a file, then wmmenugen will read all the files present in the hierarchy of this directory.
wmmenugen supports these file formats for input files:
The exit status from the wmmenugen command provides information for the caller:
- when the PropList menu was successfully generated on stdout.
- when a fspec caused a problem (non readable file, ...)
- the arguments of the command line where not recognised
- the program met an unexpected menu structure; you probably want to look at the section BUGS below.
If you get the exit status 3 with the unclear error message about unprocessed levels on the stack, you encountered a limitation of wmmenugen. It would be a good idea to prepare an archive with the files incriminated and submit them to the mailing list (firstname.lastname@example.org) with you command line, so the team can work on improving the behaviour of the program on this case.
