  27 .SH DESCRIPTION
  28 .B dmenu
  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.
