It is written in pure C without any system calls and only reads from files most of the time. It is meant to be a better alternative to Bash scripts (inefficient) and Conky (bloated for this use). +.SH OPTIONS +.TP +.B \-d +runs slstatus as daemon in background +.TP +.B \-h +displays usage +.TP +.B \-o +output to console instead of WM_NAME +.SH CUSTOMIZATION +.B slstatus +can be customized by creating a custom config.h and (re)compiling the source +code. This keeps it fast, secure and simple. +.SH AUTHORS +See the LICENSE file for the authors. +.SH LICENSE +See the LICENSE file for the terms of redistribution. +.SH BUGS +See the FIXME's in the code.
