wmmenugen - Window Maker PropList menu generator
wmmenugen generates a menu in the
PropList format for Window Maker from the input file
fspec. In the case where
fspec is a directory instead of a file, then
wmmenugen will read all the files present in the hierarchy of this directory.

If you get the exit status
3 with the unclear error message about
unprocessed levels on the stack, you encountered a limitation of
wmmenugen. It would be a good idea to prepare an archive with the files incriminated and submit them to the
mailing list (email@example.com) with you command line, so the team can work on
improving the behaviour of the program on this case.
