Front-end for starting programs under X11

Xcmd is a front-end for starting programs under X11. You can tell xcmd to look for a window with a specific class, resource name, or title string using the --find-<property>' options; if it finds one or more, xcmd will raise’ them, otherwise it will run the command you specify. You can tell xcmd to run commands that create their own windows using --xcmd', or to run commands inside a terminal window using –cmd’ with various options.
