       multi-aterm - a tabbed VT102 terminal emulator for X-Window

       multi-aterm [options]

       multi-aterm  is	a  terminal emulator. It is based on aterm 0.4.2, fea-
       tures most of functionalties of aterm (pseudo fast-transparency,	 next-
       step  look scroll bar) and mostly and notebook functionality. Thus, you
       can have	several	terminals in the same window.  Each  terminal  can  be
       configure  (name,  background,  ...)  with  a  configuration file. Like
       aterm, it aims to be light and fast and	desktop	 independant,  meaning
       KDE  or	GNOME  are  not	required.  Several configurations files	can be
       used. Specific files override resources of standard files, and  options
       override	resources found	in files.

       You  have several shortcut to ease the use of the app. Here is the lsit

       shift+page_up: sroll up screen by screen
       shift+page_down:	sroll down screen by screen

       Transparency is global, not specific to a terminal
       The same	apply for the bgtype
       Some problems with pseudo-terminal somethimes
       Font size change	is working very	bad
