Hi, how can i get what’s the value of a $[variable] in fvwm?
You answered your own question. It depends what you want to do with the variable. If it has been declared in a parent shell (that the FVWM process inherits from), or you did something like:
SetEnv myvar some_value
… then doing:
Exec exec xmessage $[myvar]
… would allow you to access the data contained within it.
What is it you want to do, exactly?

I wanted to see it but without touching the configuration files.
I’ve found that by using
FvwmCommand 'Echo $[variable]'
it gets writed in .xsession-errors
Thanks for answering anyway
I was using fvwm-crystal and wanted to copy the colorsets to mi own config, but i just found that they all point to variables like $[cs-panel-inactive] and didn’t know how to get it’s value
Just copy the colorsets directly – it’s much easier.
