Besides just the commands Fvwm provides, users can program multiple commands to be processed by Fvwm at once. This greatly extends the configurability of Fvwm to be able to link multiple commands together into a single command.

Note: Fvwm does not wait to complete one command before running another command, as such when sending Fvwm multiple commands, they may not be completed in the order issued. See FunctionSynchronisation for details.
