Re: [dwm] [PATCH] An experiment with X resources

Is there a way to make dwm execute commands at runtime
through standard input? Would that be too complex?
All functions should be there, it's just a matter
of parsing user input.

echo "set_statusbar string" | dwm
normal behavior

echo "tag XTerm,1,2,5" | dwm
XTerm gets tags 1,2,5

DWM restart problem would be solved: you could save
current state in a .dwmrc, then "cat .dwmrc" | dwm
