i3-msg - send messages to i3 window manager

SYNOPSIS

i3-msg "message"

DESCRIPTION

i3-msg is a sample implementation for a client using the unix socket IPC interface to i3. At the moment, it can only be used for sending commands (like in configuration file for key bindings), but this may change in the future (staying backwards-compatible, of course).
