Umm, why would you ever use ratpoison -c exec, instead of just
*running* $1 directly?

And then once you realize that, you can just use "xtoolwait $1" which
waits until the window is up, at which point the ratpoison -c title is
a lot more likely to be reliable (I don't think you can actually do
better than that without knowing something about the program...)

Hi all.

I am looking for a fast and robust way to launch a program and change
the title of its window.
The following simple script is neither fast nor robust (i.e. it often changes
the title of the wrong window).

# launch program $1 and rename its window to $2
ratpoison -c "exec $1"
sleep 2
ratpoison -c "title $2"
