DESCRIPTION

This tiles windows in different ways.

METHODS

new

init

start

$self->start();

Start the event loop.

Handlers

observe_window_movement

A FVWM::Tracker::WindowList observer, which tracks window movement (so we can see if the window has changed desks/pages).

observe_window_addition

A FVWM::Tracker::WindowList observer, which tracks new windows

observe_window_deletion

A FVWM::Tracker::WindowList observer, which tracks window destruction.

observe_window_iconify

A FVWM::Tracker::WindowList observer, which tracks window iconify.

observe_window_deiconify

A FVWM::Tracker::WindowList observer, which tracks window deiconify.

observe_page_change

Respond to a page or desk-change event.

handle_focus_event

Respond to a focus window event.

handle_command

Respond to a command (SendToModule,M_STRING event)

Helper methods

set_transaction

Set "transaction" on or off; this will temporarily disable some handlers since we don't want to react to things that we ourselves caused.

move_window_group

Move the given window to the next or previous group on this page.

apply_tiling

Apply the requested tiling layout.

None Full

Additional layouts are provided by layout plugins.

manage_window

A new or newly visible window needs to be managed.

demanage_window

A destroyed or newly invisible window needs to be de-managed.

init_new_page

Initialize page information for the current page.

check_interest

Look at the properties of the given window to see if we are interested in it. We aren't interested in SKIP_PAGER, SKIP_TASKBAR, DOCK or Withdrawn windows. We also aren't interested in transient windows.

Also, we may not be interested in windows of certain classes or names.

$res = $self->check_interest(window=>$id, tracker=>$tracker);

$res = $self->check_interest(window=>$id, event=>$event);

parse_options

Parse the option string, either old-style or new-style. Return max_win and the options array.

max_win is the first thing in the array which is returned.

dump_properties

Dump the properties of the given window.

get_page_windows

Get the windows on the given page.

REQUIRES

    FVWM::Module
    Class::Base

INSTALLATION

To install this module, run the following commands:

    perl Build.PL
    ./Build
    ./Build test
    ./Build install

Or, if you're on a platform (like DOS or Windows) that doesn't like the "./" notation, you can do this:

   perl Build.PL
   perl Build
   perl Build test
   perl Build install

In order to install somewhere other than the default, such as in a directory under your home directory, like "/home/fred/perl" go

   perl Build.PL --install_base /home/fred/perl

as the first step instead.

This will install the files underneath /home/fred/perl.

You will then need to make sure that you alter the PERL5LIB variable to find the modules.

Therefore you will need to change the PERL5LIB variable to add /home/fred/perl/lib

        PERL5LIB=/home/fred/perl/lib:${PERL5LIB}
