Outputs the program version.
Since version 0.2 wmbday supports two types of data files: vCard or simple.
The format of the usual data file is quite simple. The first column contains the date and the second one the name. They are separated by an arbitrary amount of whitespaces (" ", "\r", "\t", "\n").
Notice that the date format is German and not English here.
Names given in quotation can also be handled by wmbday.
Also note that a line must not exceed 100 characters. But this should not be a problem due to the limited space of the dockapp.
On the other hand you can use a vCard-address-book like it is used by KAddressbook for example. wmbday will only read the "FN" and "BDAY" lines. For more information on vCards see RFC 2426.
wmbday responds to the SIGHUP signal which makes it reload the data file.
Colors for wmbday can be specified in two ways. Either by the name ("red", "blue", "green") or by RGB values. For a complete list of color names supported by the Xlib please refer to /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/rgb.txt. It would go beyond the scope of this manpage. For exotic colors you would have to use the second method anyway. But you have to note that different monitors show those colors differently. Names by Colors are more portable.
If you want to specify the RGB value the format must be "#rrrrggggbbbb" where "r", "g" and "b" indicate the amount of the corresponding primary color in the target color in hexadecimal numbers. Numbers with less than 12 digits are filled with zeros so you can easily use "#rrggbb" instead. Note that you maybe have to escape the leading "#" in the shell.
~/.wmbday/data wmbday data file.
This man page is conform to version 0.3 of wmbday.
