wininfo [ OPTION ] ...


X Window Information is a window information utility for developers of applications, toolkits, and window managers. X Window Information follows your pointer providing information about the windows below. Information presented includes:

  • A detailed description of the window hierarchy below the pointer.

  • Parsed interpretations of standard properties from both the application window and the window manager.

  • Information about X server resources used by the application.


X Window Information accepts the standard command line arguments of any Gtk+ application. Unfortunately, these seem to be undocumented.
