TWM: cycle to next/previous window.

Hi All!

I use TWM and thoroughly enjoy the minimalism of it! I want to add some keyboard bound task switching - like alt-tab without the 'switcher' gui.. cycle to next/previous window.

"man twm" showed the following opions:
"F3" = : all : f.warpring "next"
"F6" = : all : f.colormap "next"
"F20" = : all : f.warptoscreen "next"
Perhaps I misunderstood their job in $HOME/.twmrc, but F3 and F6 don't seem to do anything - unless the applications themselves are catching those key presses..

Can anyone offer advice as to how I might put a cycle to next/previous window in .twmrc?

Thanks for any advice!
