.B dmenu
is a dynamic menu for X, originally designed for
.IR dwm (1).
It manages huge numbers of user\-defined menu items efficiently.
dmenu reads a list of newline\-separated items from stdin and creates a menu.
When the user selects an item or enters any text and presses Return, their
choice is printed to stdout 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 \-b
dmenu appears at the bottom of the screen.
.B \-f
dmenu grabs the keyboard before reading stdin.  This is faster, but may lock up
X if stdin is from a terminal.
.B \-i
dmenu matches menu items case insensitively.
.BI \-l " lines"
dmenu lists items vertically, with the given number of lines.
.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"
defines the normal background color.
.IR #RGB ,
and X color names are supported.
.BI \-nf " color"
defines the normal foreground color.
.BI \-sb " color"
defines the selected background color.
.BI \-sf " color"
defines the selected foreground color.
.B \-v
prints version information to stdout, then exits.
dmenu is completely controlled by the keyboard.  Besides standard Unix line
editing and item selection (arrow keys, page up/down, home and end), the
following keys are recognized:
.B Tab (Ctrl\-i)
Copy the selected item to the input field.
.B Return (Ctrl\-j)
Confirm selection.  Prints the selected item to stdout and exits, returning
.B Shift\-Return (Ctrl\-Shift\-j)
Confirm input.  Prints the input text to stdout and exits, returning success.
.B Escape (Ctrl\-c)
Exit without selecting an item, returning failure.
.B Ctrl\-y
Paste the current X selection into the input field.
