+=head1 NAME
+B<wmname> - Prints/sets the EWMH WM name property.
+=head1 SYNOPSIS
+B<wmname> I<{[name]}>
+wmname prints/sets the window manager name property of the root window,
+similar to how hostname(1) behaves.
+wmname is a nice utility to fix problems with JDK versions and other
+broken programs assuming a reparenting window manager for instance.
+The following command prints the window manager name, if any:
+# B<wmname>
+The following command sets the window manager name, e.g.
+# B<wmname LG3D>
+This helpful when attempting to run java swing (broken) applications,
+it makes them think they are running through the looking glass and behave
+as expected.
+=head1 OPTIONS

+=head1 AUTHORS
+B<wmname> was written by Anselm R. Garbe (garbeam at gmail dot com).
