RESIZE(1)			    XFree86			     RESIZE(1)

NAME
       resize -	set TERMCAP and	terminal settings to current xterm window size

SYNOPSIS
       resize [	-u | -c	] [ -s [ row col ] ]

DESCRIPTION
       Resize prints a shell command for setting the TERM and TERMCAP environ-
       ment  variables to indicate the current size of xterm window from which
       the command is run.  For	this output to take effect, resize must	either
       be  evaluated  as  part	of the command line (usually done with a shell
       alias or	function) or else redirected to	a file which can then be  read
       in.   From the C	shell (usually known as	/bin/csh), the following alias
       could be	defined	in the user's .cshrc:

	       %  alias	rs 'set	noglob;	eval `resize`'

       After resizing the window, the user would type:

	       %  rs

       Users of	versions of the	Bourne shell (usually known as	/bin/sh)  that
       don't  have  command functions will need	to send	the output to a	tempo-
       rary file and the read it back in with the ``.''	command:

	       $  resize > /tmp/out
	       $  . /tmp/out

OPTIONS
       The following options may be used with resize:

       -u      This option indicates that Bourne shell commands	should be gen-
	       erated even if the user's current shell isn't /bin/sh.

       -c      This option indicates that C shell commands should be generated
	       even if the user's current shell	isn't /bin/csh.

       -s [rows	columns]
	       This option indicates that Sun console escape sequences will be
	       used  instead  of  the VT100-style xterm	escape codes.  If rows
	       and columns are given, resize will  ask	the  xterm  to	resize
	       itself.	However, the window manager may	choose to disallow the
	       change.

	       Note that the Sun console escape	sequences  are	recognized  by
	       XFree86	xterm  and  by	dtterm.	  The  resize  program	may be
	       installed as sunsize, which  causes  makes  it  assume  the  -s
	       option.

	       The  rows  and  columns arguments must appear last; though they
	       are normally associated with the	-s  option,  they  are	parsed
	       separately.

FILES
       /etc/termcap   for the base termcap entry to modify.

       ~/.cshrc	      user's alias for the command.
