Description danf 1999-05-08 19:44:13 UTC
When generating WindowMaker menus, percent characters need
backslash escaping in the EXEC output line. e.g. a
/etc/X11/wmconfig file containing:

fooview exec "xgetfile -exec 'viewfax %s ' &"

should generate a line like:

"Foo viewer" EXEC xgetfile -exec 'viewfax \%s ' &

AnotherLevel/WMConfig are deprecated for 6.2 and later; further feature
development will not occur.
