This program lets you activate, move to front or move to back a window
specified by its title on the active screen or any screen. The screen
can also be brought to front or put back.

"What would this be good for then", you might ask..?!
Well, lets say you a writing in some program, say YAM or a text editor
or something and then someone writes a comment on IRC, or you what to
change song/volume in your favourite music player without using your mouse.
Then this is a nice program. You just use some program that can execute
commands with a hotkey, like AllKeys or ToolsDaemon to set up this program
with appropriate parameters and assign it a hotkey.

This way you can switch to the IRC/AmigaAMP/DeliTracker/whatever window
without using your mouse :-)

It is also possible to use it to flip screens or just putting the active
window to front or back. Just let it execute on a hotkey from for example
AllKeys.


News & History:
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
* FIX * Now using LockIBase() to prevent the sporadic crashes this
        program seemed to suffer from. If you at some time deleted this
        program because it crashed, now is a good time to try it again.

v1.2
~~~~
* Added the possibility to put the currently active window to
  front or to back, i.e. you can omit both WINDOWTITLE and
  WINSCREENTITLE.

* Added the possibility to move the active screen, or a screen
  specified by name to back.

* Now using Forbid()/Permit() which should make it a little bit
  more reliable.

v1.1
~~~~
* Now it is possible to activate the next window on the active
  screen. This means it's possible to cycle through all the
  windows on the active screen. The new keyword is NEXT.

v1.0
~~~~
* First release.
