@section intro Introduction

The Enlightenment Window Manager is a lean, fast, modular and very
extensible window manager for X11 and Linux. It is classed as a
"desktop shell" providing the things you need to operate your desktop
(or laptop), but is not a whole application suite. This covered
launching applications, managing their windows and doing other system
tasks like suspending, reboots, managing files etc.

pkgconfig (.pc) files are installed for enlightenment. To compile a
module you can use something like the following:

gcc module.c $(pkg-config enlightenment --cflags --libs)

Note that modules are installed to $HOME (~/.e/e/modules) or
system. One can know the system directory with the command:
