USAGE

Here are some real life usages.

Checks for xft support:



if fvwm-config --supports-xft;
  then echo 1; else echo 0; fi


fvwm-themes package checks for the correct fvwm version installed using:



fvwm-config --version


and tries to use the same installation directories:



fvwm-config --bindir --mandir --fvwm-datadir


A way to find the full path to the fvwm executable:



echo ‘fvwm-config --bindir‘/‘fvwm-config --fvwm-exe‘


A way to start modules in perl:



use lib ‘fvwm-config -p | tr -d ’0‘;
use FVWM::Module;


For a more human readable output, try:



fvwm-config --info
