rename-window command for X11
# I added this snippet to my .bashrc to give me a `rename-window` command when
# using a terminal (`st`, in my case). Invoke as:
#
# `rename-window "the name you desire"`
#
# If you don't have `xdotool` then we alias an echo so we'll know it's not there.
which xdotool >/dev/null 2>&1
if [ "$?" = "0" ]
then
alias rename-window='xdotool selectwindow set_window --name'
else
alias rename-window='echo "xdotool not found"'
