comment Create keyboard shortcuts to move/resize windows in Ubuntu
I don't know how to get the size of the monitor a window is on if your screen is stretched on multiple monitors and I don't have a second monitor around to try a bit. Maybe one could use xrandr to get the resolutions and then use the screen position to find out which monitor it is. Getting this right with all the options for turning, reflecting, scaling, ... and all possible relative monitor positions may get a bit tricky. Maybe it's worth a question of its own...

"xwininfo -root" prints some information about the root window. awk takes its output, selects the lines containing either " Width:" or " Height:" and prints the values. Usally "awk '/ (Width|Height):/ { print $2 }'" works here, too, I just needed the longer one to work around a bug some time ago and got used to it. The two values are then used as arguments to "set --" which sets $1 and $2 to that values. For better readability I want to use $width and $height instead so I set them accordingly. In the wmctrl call this variables are then used to calculate the new window width and height.
