miwm - a minimal appearance, full-function window manager
is Ben Wise's
Manager. It is pronounced 'my whim'.
The goal of miwm is to be a fully functional window manager, while retaining
a very spare (Zen or Spartan, as you please) appearance and command-set.
This man page is VERY MUCH under construction. It is not complete, and

recursive option is specified, then all deleted files or directories
in any of its children will be restored as well.
The shell wildcards * and ?, as well as shell brace
notation using [ and ], are interpreted correctly by
It is possible to pass wildcards to the program without the wildcards
being intercepted by the shell by setting
(in csh) or by quoting the wildcards. To delete a file that
actually has a wildcard in its name, you must precede the quoted
wildcard with a quoted backslash.
If no files are specified on the command line,
goes into interactive mode. In interactive mode, the user is prompted
to enter files to be restored, one file per line. Typing a carriage
return on an empty prompt line exits the program.
Wildcards and quoting backslashes can be entered directly at the
prompt without any shell interference (which is the
main reason there is an interactive mode).
