MMM : tips
Optimal use of the tachymeter
If you usually do long Web browsing sessions with a single instance of the
browser, then proceed as follows:
Resize the initial window to that only the tachymeter remains visible (80x80
is the nominal size, or better, run mmm with the option
-geometry 80x80+X+Y (where X and Y give the initial position).
Then, make this window Sticky in your window manager, so
that it remains visible in all your virtual screens. You can now
open windows by clicking with mouse button 1 in the tachymeter.
You can also select a URL in any window using the mouse, and the click with
button 2 on the tachymeter to open a new MMM window on the document
at this address.
- The document title is a menu : it displays the headers of the
document. Some headers are active (e.g. Refresh).
- To search for text, type Control-S. This works in HTML
display windows (but incorrectly in the presence of tables and frames), and
in the source windows as well.
- The dialog box for selecting a file name (e.g. when saving) has an
electric mode. If the mouse cursor is in one of the lists, you can
type caracters for faster moving around the list.
- When you save to a file, if the first character of the file name is a
pipe (|), then the name is used as a command and executed with the document
as standard input.
