for quite a while now I’m fumbling trying to get a working fvwm module written either as a shell or an awk script, but I never
really managed to get to the point where the module would be able to send commands to fvwm.
With the shell script I always get an error complaining about the sent string being to big.
With awk I even do not come to that point as I have no idea howto write to a file descriptor.
In one of the topics I read about a module written as a shell script but I didn’t find any source code. It seems to be vanished…
The background is that my fvwm runs on a Zaurus and I try to avoid installing perl in order to save precious disk space.
On the other hand I would like to handle key bindings without the Exec command as it costs too much time to open
a shell each time you want to adjust the volume for mplayer.
Maybe one of you fvwm (or shell or awk) experts can help me by giving me some hints?
Thanks a lot in advance.
