herbstclient - sends commands to a running herbstluftwm instance via X
herbstclient [OPTIONS] COMMAND [ARGS ...]
herbstclient [OPTIONS] [--wait|--idle] [FILTER ...]
Sends a COMMAND with its (optional) arguments ARGS to a running herbstluftwm(1) instance via Xlib. If COMMAND has an output, it is printed by herbstclient. If output does not end with a newline, then a newline is added to improve readability.
See herbstluftwm(1) for a list of available COMMANDs and their ARGS.
If --wait or --idle is passed, then it waits for hooks from herbstluftwm. The hook is printed, if it matches the optional FILTER. FILTERs are regular expressions. For a list of available hooks see herbstluftwm(1).
Do not print a newline if output does not end with a newline.
Use the null character as delimiter between the output of hooks.
-w, only print the last argument of the hook.
Wait for hooks instead of executing commands.
