It allows for the screen to be split into non-overlapping tiles and, in contrast to the original ratpoison, has native support for multi-workspace operation.
All interactions between the user and cagebreak are done via the keyboard.
Configuration of this behaviour is specified in the $XDG_CONFIG_PATH/cagebreak/config file (See cagebreak-config(5)).
Scripting support is provided through the IPC socket specified in the environment variable $CAGEBREAK_SOCKET. The syntax accepted through this socket is identical to that of the configuration file (see cagebreak-config(5)). Errors which occur during interaction over IPC channel are displayed in a message box at the top right of the screen.
