Hey trapster

a great app !
and your coding is logical to follow
I did some minor tweaks to make the JWM auto update the menu
to reflect instant changes you make in the GUI
I added jemimah's fix also --- thanks jemimah

*using TXZ packages I can permanently remove the apps from the OS
but your program is useful to hide the apps from users that may be confused by so many apps in the menu

thanks

I am posting the TXZ package for anyone that is using TXZ-pup
since a slack-desc file is also required

# HOW TO EDIT THIS FILE:
# The "handy ruler" below makes it easier to edit a package description. Line
# up the first '|' above the ':' following the base package name, and the '|' on
# the right side marks the last column you can put a character in. You must make
# exactly 11 lines for the formatting to be correct. It's also customary to
# leave one space after the ':'.

Your Pmenu is better as a standalone app. The one in Stardust is a configuration tool depending on jwm. Sorry for using the same name. - I wasn't aware of your work.
