tabbed ā€” generic tabbed interface

Synopsis

tabbed [-c] [-d] [-h] [-s] [-v] [-g geometry] [-n name] [-p [s+/-]pos] [-r narg] [command...]

Description

tabbed is a simple tabbed container for applications which support XEmbed. Tabbed will then run the provided command with the xid of tabbed as appended argument. (See Examples.) The automatic spawning of the command can be disabled by providing the -s parameter. If no command is provided tabbed will just print its xid and run no command.

Options

-c

close tabbed when the last tab is closed. Mutually exclusive with -f.

-d

detaches tabbed from the terminal and prints its XID to stdout.

-f

fill up tabbed again by spawning the provided command, when the last tab is closed. Mutually exclusive with -c.

-h

will print the usage of tabbed.

-g geometry

defines the X11 geometry string, which will fixate the height and width of tabbed. Them form is [=][<width>{xX}<height>][{+-}<xoffset>{+-}<yoffset>]. See XParseGeometry(3) for further details.

-n name

will set the WM_CLASS attribute to name.

-p [ s +/-] pos

will set the absolute or relative position of where to start a new tab. When pos is is given without 's' in front it is an absolute position. Then negative numbers will be the position from the last tab, where -1 is the last tab. If 's' is given, then pos is a relative position to the current selected tab. If this reaches the limits of the tabs; those limits then apply.

-r narg

will replace the narg th argument in command with the window id, rather than appending it to the end.

-s

will disable automatic spawning of the command.

-t color

defines the selected background color. #RGB, #RRGGBB, and X color names are supported.

-T color

defines the selected foreground color.

-u color

defines the normal background color.

-U color

defines the normal foreground color.

-v

prints version information to stderr, then exits.

tabbed can be customized by creating a custom config.h and (re)compiling the source code. This keeps it fast, secure and simple.
