bgicons - maintain icons on the desktop background
bgicons -icondb icondb [ -inputfile inputfile ]
bgicons maintains icons on the desktop background by comparing its notion
of the system stored in icondb with the new state of the system from
inputfile. If the -inputfile argument is not specified, the new state of
the system is read from standard input.
inputfile is a text file containing lines of serialized DNA. icondb is
maintained by bgicons; the first time bgicons is run for a particular
icondb, it is expected that icondb will not exist. icondb should not be
edited by any program other than bgicons; otherwise bgicons will not
bgicons works by creating an icon on the background for each object in
inputfile that is not in icondb, and removing the icon on the background
for each object in icondb that is not in inputfile.
