NAME

       propwatch - a tool to monitor X11 properties


SYNOPSIS

       propwatch [ toolkit-options ] property-name ...


DESCRIPTION

       propwatch  is  a tool to monitor window properties of root and applica-
       tion windows.  Nice for debugging property-based IPC of X11 programs.


OPTIONS

       propwatch uses the Athena Widgets and accepts the usual toolkit options
       like -geometry.

       All  remaining  command line arguments are assumed to be property names
       which should be monitored.  If  no  property  names  are  specified,  a
       buildin default set will be used.


ENVIRONMENT

       DISPLAY
              specifies the display to use for the propwatch window.

       PROPWATCH
              specifies  the  display  to  monitor.  It unset, DISPLAY will be
              used.


SEE ALSO
