RESIZE(1)		    General Commands Manual		     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 it-
	       self.  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  in-
	       stalled 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.
