NAME
       st - simple terminal

SYNOPSIS
       st  [-aiv] [-c class] [-f font] [-g geometry] [-n name] [-o iofile] [-T
       title] [-t title] [-l line] [-w windowid] [[-e] command [arguments...]]

       st [-aiv] [-c class] [-f	font] [-g geometry] [-n	name] [-o iofile]  [-T
       title] [-t title] [-w windowid] -l line [stty_args...]

DESCRIPTION
       st is a simple terminal emulator.

OPTIONS
       -a     disable alternate	screens	in terminal

       -c class
	      defines the window class (default	$TERM).

       -f font
	      defines the font to use when st is run.

       -g geometry
	      defines	 the	X11    geometry	   string.     The   form   is
	      [=][<cols>{xX}<rows>][{+-}<xoffset>{+-}<yoffset>]. See XParseGe-
	      ometry(3)	for further details.

       -i     will fixate the position given with the -g option.

       -n name
	      defines the window instance name (default	$TERM).

       -o iofile
	      writes  all  the	I/O  to	 iofile.   This	feature	is useful when
	      recording	st sessions. A value of	"-" means standard output.

       -T title
	      defines the window title (default	'st').

       -t title
	      defines the window title (default	'st').

       -w windowid
	      embeds st	within the window identified by	windowid

       -l line
	      use a tty	line instead of	a pseudo terminal.  line should	 be  a
	      (pseudo-)serial device (e.g. /dev/ttyS0 on Linux for serial port
	      0).  When	this flag is given remaining  arguments	 are  used  as
	      flags for	stty(1).  By default st	initializes the	serial line to
	      8	bits, no parity, 1 stop	bit and	a 38400	baud rate.  The	 speed
	      is  set by appending it as last argument (e.g. 'st -l /dev/ttyS0
	      115200').	Arguments before the last one are  stty(1)  flags.  If
	      you want to set odd parity on 115200 baud	use for	example	'st -l
	      /dev/ttyS0 parenb	parodd 115200'.	Set the	number of bits by  us-
	      ing  for	example	'st -l /dev/ttyS0 cs7 115200'. See stty(1) for
	      more arguments and cases.

       -v     prints version information to stderr, then exits.

       -e command [ arguments ... ]
	      st executes command instead of the shell.	 If this  is  used  it
	      must be the last option on the command line, as in xterm / rxvt.
	      This option is only intended for compatibility, and all the  re-
	      maining arguments	are used as a command even without it.

SHORTCUTS
       Break  Send  a  break  in the serial line.  Break key is	obtained in PC
	      keyboards	pressing at the	same time control and pause.

       Ctrl-Print Screen
	      Toggle if	st should print	to the iofile.

       Shift-Print Screen
	      Print the	full screen to the iofile.

       Print Screen
	      Print the	selection to the iofile.

       Ctrl-Shift-Page Up
	      Increase font size.

       Ctrl-Shift-Page Down
	      Decrease font size.

       Ctrl-Shift-Home
	      Reset to default font size.

       Ctrl-Shift-y
	      Paste from primary selection (middle mouse button).

       Ctrl-Shift-c
	      Copy the selected	text to	the clipboard selection.

       Ctrl-Shift-v
	      Paste from the clipboard selection.

CUSTOMIZATION
       st can be customized by creating	a custom  config.h  and	 (re)compiling
       the source code.	This keeps it fast, secure and simple.
