Starting from fvwm-2.5.x versions there is a built-in support for creating fvwm modules in Perl. This fvwm-perllib utility provides help services for the Fvwm Perl library.


show the help and exit
show the version and exit
--man or man [ Perl::Class ] show manual page just like man

--cat or cat [ Perl::Class ] show manual page in plain text

--raw or raw [ Perl::Class ] generate output in man format (not human readable)

--dir or dir
print perllib directory without a trailing end of line


Use this in the fvwm modules written in Perl:

    use lib `fvwm-perllib dir`;

Introduction to the Fvwm Perl library:

    % fvwm-perllib man

Manual page for the FVWM::Module class:
