.B dmenu
is a dynamic menu for X, originally designed for
.BR dwm (1).
It manages huge numbers of user-defined menu items efficiently.
dmenu reads a list of newline-separated items from standard input and creates a
menu.  When the user selects an item or enters any text and presses Return,
their choice is printed to standard output and dmenu terminates.
.B dmenu_run
is a dmenu script used by dwm which lists programs in the user's PATH and
executes the selected item.
.B dmenu_path
is a program used by dmenu_run to find and cache a list of executables.
.B \-b
dmenu appears at the bottom of the screen.
.B \-i
dmenu matches menu items case insensitively.
.BI \-l " lines"
dmenu lists items vertically, with the given number of lines.
.BI \-m " monitor"

.BI \-p " prompt"
defines the prompt to be displayed to the left of the input field.
.BI \-fn " font"
defines the font or font set used.
.BI \-nb " color"

.BI \-sb " color"
