  27. .SH DESCRIPTION

  29. is a dynamic menu for X, which reads a list of newline\-separated items from
  30. stdin. When the user selects an item and presses Return, their choice is printed
  31. to stdout and dmenu terminates. Entering text will narrow the items to those
  32. matching the tokens in the input.
