Utility to set override_redirect in XWindowAttributes to True

This program sets attribute “override_redirect” to True for any window you’ve specified using window name. Window Managers should ignore such windows; it’s useful, for example, if you’re using wmx Window Manager, and want to have a clock on every virtual screen and without any borders. Just add the following string to your X-startfile after starting watch app

xnodecor -w watch

assuming that your watch application has a window named “watch”
