set -- $(xwininfo -root| awk -F '[ :]+' '/ (Width|Height):/ { print
$3 }') width=$1

win1="$(xwininfo| awk '/^xwininfo: W/ { print $4 }')"
win2="$(xwininfo| awk '/^xwininfo: W/ { print $4 }')"

wmctrl -i -r "$win1" -e 0,0,0,$((width/2)),$height
wmctrl -i -r "$win2" -e 0,$((width/2)),0,$((width/2)),$height
