	Menu: A dictionary type that holds the menu elements. This will
	typically hold MenuItem subclasses (see below).
	MenuItem: base class for various WindowMaker menu types. Don't use
	directly. Instead, use:
from WindowMaker import *
m = Menu("Menu Title")
m["Xterm"] = Exec("xterm")
m["Rxvt"] = Exec("rxvt")
m["Apps"] = Open_menu("apps.menu")
print m
# Can nest menus by creating new menu and adding it to another menu.
m2 = Menu("Nested Menu")
m2["Nested item"] = Exec("wterm")
m["nest"] = m2
print m
from UserDict import UserDict
import string, types
class Menu(UserDict):
	The menu class is a WindowMaker menu definiton.  It uses dictionary
	semantics (inherits the UserDict class).  You should supply the menu
	title as a string. It simply defaults to "Menu" if omited.
	You may also change the menu title after the fact with the settitle()
	The elements are expected to be an instance of a MenuItem subclass
	(e.g Exec.) 
	def __init__(self, title="Menu"):
		self.data = {}
		self.title = title
	def __repr__(self):
		s = []
		list = self.data.keys()
		s.append('"%s" MENU\n' % self.title)
		for item in list:
		# allow for nested menus
			if self.data[item].__class__.__name__ == "Menu":
				s.append('  "%s" %s\n' % (item, `self.data[item]`))
		s.append('"%s" END\n' % self.title)
		return string.join(s, '')
#	def __setitem__(self, name, value):
#	def __delitem__(self):
#	def __getitem__(self):
	def settitle(self, newtitle):
		self.title = newtitle
class MenuItem:
	Root Menu definition for WindowMaker
	Syntax is:
	<Title> [SHORTCUT <Shortcut>] <Command> <Parameters>
	<Title> is any string to be used as title. Must be enclosed with " if it
		has spaces
	SHORTCUT specifies a shortcut for that item. <Shortcut> has the same
	syntax of the shortcuts key options in the
	~/GNUstep/Defaults/WindowMaker file, such as RootMenuKey or
	MiniaturizeKey.  You can't specify a shortcut for a MENU or OPEN_MENU
	Note that this class is not intended to be used directly, but is the
	base class for the specific menu item classes. The class you use is
	the same name as the menu command, but lowercase with first letter
	def __init__(self, params="", shortcut=""):
		self.params = params
		if len(shortcut) != 0:
			self.shortcut = 'SHORTCUT "%s"' % (shortcut)
			self.shortcut = ""
		self.command = string.upper(self.__class__.__name__)	
	def __repr__(self):
		return '%s %s %s' % \
			(self.shortcut, self.command, self.params)
	def setparams(self, params):
		self.params = params
	def setshortcut(self, shortcut):
		self.shortcut = 'SHORTCUT "%s"' % (shortcut)
import os
from stat import *
class Open_menu(MenuItem):
	opens a menu from a file, pipe or directory(ies) contents and
	eventually precede each with a command.  
	Open_menu(params, [withcommand], [no extension])
		params = desired menu file, executable command, or directory.
		withcommand = optional command to that will be used when params is
		a directory. Each directory entry will be opened with this command
		when selected.
		no_extension = flag to indicate is file extension in a directory
		are to be stripped. Default is no.
	def __init__(self, params, withopt="", noext=0):
		self.params = params
		self.shortcut = ""
		self.command = string.upper(self.__class__.__name__)	
		self.withopt = withopt
		if noext > 0:
			self.command = self.command + " -noext"
		firstparam = string.split(params)[0]
		# flag is paramter is a directory. Must be directory to use WITH.
		self.isdir = os.path.isdir(firstparam)
		# check if parameter is an executable file. If so, use pipe
		# option. Note that this program must produce valid menu format
		# output or bad things will happen.
		if os.path.isfile(firstparam):
			mode = os.stat(firstparam)[ST_MODE]
			if (mode & (S_IXUSR | S_IXGRP | S_IXOTH)):
				self.params = '|' + params
	def __repr__(self):
		if self.isdir and len(self.withopt) > 0:
			return '%s %s WITH %s' % (self.command, self.params, self.withopt)
			return '%s %s' % (self.command, self.params)
class Workspace_menu(MenuItem):
	adds a submenu for workspace operations. Only one workspace_menu is
class Exec(MenuItem):
	Executes an external program.
	Options for command line in EXEC:
	%s - substitute with current selection
	%a(title[,prompt]) - opens a input box with the specified title and the
                     optional prompt and do substitution with what you typed
	%w - substitute with XID for the current focused window
	You can override special characters (as % and ") with the \ character:
	ex: xterm -T "\"Hello World\""
	You can also use character escapes, like \n
class Exit(MenuItem):
	exits the window manager
class Restart(MenuItem):
	restarts WindowMaker or start another window manager
class Refresh(MenuItem):
	refreshes the desktop
class Arrange_icons(MenuItem):
	rearranges the icons on the workspace
class Shutdown(MenuItem):
	kills all clients (and close the X window session)
class Show_all(MenuItem):
	unhides all windows on workspace
class Hide_others(MenuItem):
	hides all windows on the workspace, except the focused one (or the last
	one that received focus)
class Save_session(MenuItem):
	saves the current state of the desktop, which include all running
	applications, all their hints (geometry, position on screen, workspace
	they live on, the dock or clip from where they were launched, and if
	minimized, shaded or hidden. Also saves the current workspace the user
	is on. All will be restored on every start of windowmaker until another
	SAVE_SESSION or CLEAR_SESSION is used. If SaveSessionOnExit = Yes; in
	WindowMaker domain file, then saving is automatically done on every
	windowmaker exit, overwriting any SAVE_SESSION or CLEAR_SESSION.
class Clear_session(MenuItem):
	clears any previous saved session. This will not have any effect if
	SaveSessionOnExit is True.
class Info(MenuItem):
	shows the Info Panel
