Do you use dmenu? Do you find yourself repeatedly choosing the same  
two or three options out of an endless sea of millions?

Then may I recommend to you yeganesh, the dmenu wrapper with a bit of  
smarts! Let your most commonly-used applications float to the top of  
the dmenu list, so you have to type less. New in version 2.3 is an  
"--executables" option (or just "-x" for those of you with RSI), which  
trolls your $PATH looking for executables. Now, instead of the clunky

`dmenu_path | yeganesh`

you can enjoy the far more elegant

`yeganesh -x`

...which has the benefit of not relying on the existence of a script  
which has gone the way of the dinosaurs. To get the latest, just type:

cabal update && cabal install --reinstall yeganesh

Full documentation, including a feature list, complete changelog,  
installation instructions, and the all-important link to the bug  
tracker, is available at <http://dmwit.com/yeganesh>.
