Unfinished gesture recognition program

xstroke is a gesture recognition program. Performing known gestures in the xstroke window, (using a stylus, mouse, or other ppointer), will cause actions to be performed, (most commonly to send character events to the currently focused window). The known strokes actions and there corresponding actions are defined in the ${HOME}/.xstrokerc file described below. The xstroke configuration file, (${HOME}/.xstrokerc), defines strokes and actions to be performed when the stroke is entered. Currently, the only supported action is to send a KeyPress and KeyRelease event to the currently focused window. The default alphabet in xstrokerc is an original alphabet. Many strokes are similar to the strokes in the program xscribble, although xstroke does not have any shift modes, (capitals, num-shift, punc-shift, etc). Instead, all letters, numbers, and punctuation are defined in a single alphabet.
