Starting an xterm window that is "always on top" on command line
 
Is it possible to pass a parameter to X windows (or the window manager?) on the command line that makes a window "always on top"? I need to start an xterm window in a perl script and I need it to be always on top. There are other ways to do it, including right clicking on the window, and setting a key binding, but I need to do it from the command line. Anyone know if this is possible? I am using GNOME with Metacity window manager on FC3.

Thanks.

If you want to run something in the back ground add an ampersand or & at the end of the command.
