PLUMB(1)                                                 PLUMB(1)

     NAME
          plumb - send message to plumber

     SYNOPSIS
          plumb [ -s src ] [ -d dest ] [ -w wdir ] [ -t type ] [ -a
          name value ] [ -i ] data ...

     DESCRIPTION
          Plumb sends a message to the plumber, plumber(8), which is
          normally started by wm(1)'s start up script.

          The options and arguments are used as components of the mes-
          sage.  See plumbing(6) for their interpretation.  The
          options are:

          -s src
               Set the source to src (default: unspecified).

          -d dest
               Set the destination to dest (default: unspecified).

          -w wdir
               Set the working directory to wdir (default: current
               directory as reported by pwd(1) or workdir(2)).

          -t type
               Set the type of data to type (default: text)

          -a name value
               Include an attribute `name=value'; there can be more
               than one.

          -i   Take the data from the standard input not from the
               argument strings.  If an action attribute is not other-
               wise specified, plumb will add an action=showdata
               attribute to the message.

          The remaining arguments are sent, separated by spaces, as
          the data of the message.  The plumber will apply its rules
          to the resulting message to decide how to route it.
