wminfo is a Window Maker dockable application that displays text format information using the plugin. The standard plugin is a shell script. The plugin writes the information to stdout, and wminfo captures the output and displays it row by row. Using the appropriate plugins, wminfo can display different information obtained from the system or from the Internet.
