IMO very bad idea. If you do that you won't be able to run command with arguments (eg. urxvt -e irssi).

Subject: [dev] dmenu : auto confirm when only one item remains

Sorry, I don't write to bring a patch.
I wander if someone has already patched dwm
to make it auto confirm when, (as said in the subject)
only one item remains.

I've found something on the mailing list which is almost
what I wish but not exactly, it auto confirms on exact match.

It could be something like :
if number of Item == 1 or if firstItem == lastItem
fprintf(stdout, "%s", text);
running = False;

As I'm not a developper, I miss the knowledge
to write the if condition in real code.

This feature would be handy for a few scripts in which I use dmenu.
If someone has already done it or have ideas on how to do it, please let
me know :) .
