--usage-log=<file>

Must point to a read-writeable file (will create if not exists). In this mode entries are sorted by usage frequency.

--wait-on=<path>

Must point to a path where a file can be created. In this mode no menu will be shown. Instead the program waits for <path> to be written to (use echo > path). Every time this happens a menu will be shown. Desktop files are parsed ahead of time. Perfoming 'echo -n q > path' will exit the program.
