X startup script?

Hello everybody!

I've been looking in Google for quite a while, but I can't find anything...

Is there something like the .bashrc for WindowMaker? I have a xmodmap-file that I'd like to load at startup, but I just can't find anything that would tell WindowMaker what commands to execute while starting...

Putting it into my .bashrc is not really an option, because in the xmodmap, I define a mapping for a key on my keyboard that's the shortcut for starting the terminal.

Thanks a lot in advance for any help!

Alternatively, you could put the commands in ~/.xinitrc or ~/.xsession, depending on whether you use a gui login or not.
