As an example I am using
xdotool to obtain the list of windows on my desktop, which outputs a list of numbers, one on each line.
An example command for that is:
xdotool search --name "a_program", which lists all the windows, which contain the string
a_program in their title.
An example output would be:
50853718 50853807 50859414
An example command for getting the window title from the number is
xdotool getwindowname 50854718.
How would I construct a command using
xargs so that the output on every line would be translated to
xdotool getwindowname outputnumber?
The question is mainly about
xargs, though any comments about
xdotool would be welcome.
