    avwm 0.4 / Amiga Virtual Workbench Manager
    5/2/93 Bernhard Fastenrath
    Public Domain


Avwm was inspired by olvwm (an X11 virtual window manager).
Avwm uses SetFunction () to replace window-manipulating functions with its
own replacement functions. Every time a replacement function is called it
notifies avwm and calls the original function.

Intuition itself manipulates windows directly (e.g. when the sizing gadget
is used SizeWindow () isn't called). To work around this problem avwm
checks the list of windows on the Workbench Screen in regular intervals.
SetFunction () in now no longer used by default but can be activated
with the -s option.

By default avwm expects the workbench screen to have three times the
visible horizontal size and twice the visible vertical size. It uses
MoveScreen to move between the resulting 6 `screens'.

If the -m options is used it keeps invisible windows on the lower part of
a Workbench screen with twice the visible vertical size and uses MoveWindow
to move the windows of one of the six virtual areas onto the visible part
of the screen.

Bugs:
  A window placed on the border of several areas can
  only be `touched' in the upper right area.
