Full description '''Sawfish''' is an extensible window mana'''Sawfish''' is an extensible window manager using an [[Emacs Lisp]]-like scripting language. All window decorations are configurable, the basic idea is to have as much user-interface policy as possible controlled through the Lisp language. Despite this extensibility, its policy is currently very minimal compared to most window managers. Its aim is simply to manage windows in the most flexible and attractive manner possible. As such it does not implement desktop backgrounds, applications docks, or other things that may be achieved through separate applications. All high-level ''wm'' functions are implemented in Lisp for future extensibility or redefinition. Currently this includes menus (using [[GTK+]]), interactive window moving and resizing, virtual desktop, iconification, focus/transient window policies, frame theme definitions and much more. Also, most received events are exported to the Lisp environment through key-bindings and hooks, similar to in [[Emacs]]. These events include pointer behavior and many internal X11 events (enter/leave, focus-in/focus-out, map/unmap, etc..)ave, focus-in/focus-out, map/unmap, etc..)
