RESIZE(1)               FreeBSD 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
       environment 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
       temporary 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
               generated 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.
