       stjerm -	quake-style terminal emulator

       stjerm [-OPTION]	[-OPTION] ... [-OPTION]

       stjerm  is  a  quake-style  terminal. It	is minimalistic	and works well
       with compiz.  stjerm can	be configured via  commandline	or  the	 .Xde-
       faults file.

       The  following list of options displays the .Xdefaults option first and
       then the	commandline option.  The commandline  options  have  a	higher
       priority	and thus override the .Xdefaults options.

       If  you	run  stjerm with an action it will not parse other commandline
       options and will	exit.

       If you specify a	hex color on the commandline you have to ommit	the  #
       char.  Otherwise	the option will	not get	parsed.	 This restriction only
       affects the commandline options,	not the	.Xdefaults options.

       --help Displays menu with commandline options.

       --info Displays menu with .Xdefaults options.

	      Display the current application version.

	      Show/hide	the current stjerm instance.

       key, -k
	      Shortcut key which shows and hides  stjerm  (eg:	f12).  If  you

	      you run stjerm with --toggle.

       mod, -m
