DESCRIPTION

The format of a wmappl configuration file consists of a number of sections, defined by a section name surrounded in square brakets, for example: "[section]". Each button that should appear in wmappl should have its own section. The lines following the section name specify the icon to use, the command to launch when the button is pressed and an optional tooltip string to be displayed.

An optional [wmappl] section may be specified which specifies configuration options for wmappl. These options have the same names as the long command line options and are entirely optional. Command line arguments will override any specified in the configuration file. There are some options that have no cooresponding command line option.

Anything after a pound sign (’#’) is considered a comment and will be ignored. A line may be continued by ending the line in a backslash (’#146;). Blank lines and any invalid key=value pairs are ignored.
