FvwmSave - the FVWM desktop-layout saving module
FvwmSave is spawned by fvwm, so no command line invocation
When called, this module will attempt to save your current
desktop layout into a file called new.xinitrc. Ideally,
this file will look just like .xinitrc, but in reality,
you will have to edit it to get a usable configuration, so
be sure to keep a backup of your old .xinitrc.
Your applications must supply certain hints to the X win-
dow system. Emacs, for example, does not, so FvwmSave
can't get any information from it.
Also, FvwmSave assumes that certain command line options
are globally accepted by applications, which may not be
The NoClutter program, and the concept for interfacing
this module to the Window Manager, are all original work

During initialization, NoClutter will eventually search a
configuration file which describes the time-outs and
actions to take. The configuration file is the same file
that fvwm used during initialization.
If the NoClutter executable is linked to another name, ie
ln -s NoClutter OtherClutter, then another module called
OtherClutter can be started, with a completely different
configuration than NoClutter, simply by changing the key-
word NoClutter to OtherClutter. This way multiple clut-
ter-reduction programs can be used.
NoClutter can be invoked by inserting the line 'Module
NoClutter' in the .fvwmrc file. This can be placed on a
line by itself, if NoClutter is to be spawned during
fvwm's initialization, or can be bound to a menu or mouse
button or keystroke to invoke it later. Fvwm will search
directory specified in the ModulePath configuration option
to attempt to locate NoClutter.
NoClutter reads the same .fvwmrc file as fvwm reads when
it starts up, and looks for lines similar to "*NoClutter
3600 Iconify". The format of these lines is "*NoClutter
[time] [command]", where command is any fvwm built-in com-
mand, and time is the time in seconds between when a win-
dow looses focus and when the command is executed. At most
3 actions can be specified.
