	Most, if not all, of the applets that are "for" AfterStep come
with AfterStep, i.e. asclock, ascd, asmail, etc.

	They are programs which Window Maker devotees have written that
are designed to work with the WindowMaker Dock (see below).

! this work?

	All the programs work out of the box for AfterStep as well.  I
happen to run wmppp, wmmixer, wmcdplay, and wmload.  You will need
1.4.5.3-MSG or 1.4.5.55N6 to fully swallow these applets into the wharf as
they require the entire 64x64 space.  The applets still function as
advertised in lower versions of AS, only a small portion of the applet is
cut off in the Wharf.

	If you haven't already found the pager for these wm applets:
