matchbox-remote connects to a running matchbox-window-manager process to get information about its state or send it instructions.

matchbox-window-manager is a window manager for the X Window System running on non-desktop embedded platforms such as handhelds, set-top boxes, kiosks and anything else for which screen space, input mechanisms or system resources are limited.
