scrlock - simple screen locker
============================
simple screen locker utility for X. 

This program is a derived work from slock utility by suckless.org. Its aim 
is to add some features while keeping slock minimalistic interface.

Requirements
------------
In order to build scrlock you need the Xlib header files.


Installation
------------
Edit config.mk to match your local setup (scrlock is installed into
the /usr/local namespace by default).

Edit config.h to configure scrlock. Comment the lines defining MSG or SCRIPT
to disable this options. Some config can be done for every one of them in
the same file. Configuration can only be done at compile-time.

Afterwards enter the following command to build and install scrlock
(if necessary as root):

    make clean install


Running slock
-------------
Simply invoke the 'scrlock' command. To get out of it, enter your password.
If a wrong password is typed, a script is executed in an other process.
You can enter messages with ctrl+space, saving them with enter.
