UXTERM(1)			X Window System			     UXTERM(1)

NAME
       uxterm -	X terminal emulator for	Unicode	(UTF-8)	environments

SYNOPSIS
       uxterm [	xterm-options ]

DESCRIPTION
       uxterm is a wrapper around the xterm(1) program that invokes the	latter
       program with the	"UXTerm" X resource class set.	All arguments  to  ux-
       term are	passed to xterm	without	processing; the	-class and -u8 options
       should not be specified because they are	used by	the wrapper.  See  the
       xterm manual page for more information on xterm-options.

       The environment's locale	settings (see "ENVIRONMENT" below) are used to
       discern the locale's character set.  If no current locale can be	deter-
       mined,  the  locale "en_US" (the	English	language as used in the	terri-
       tory of the United States) is assumed.  The locale(1) utility  is  used
       to  determine  whether  the system supports the selected	locale.	 If it
       does not, uxterm	will exit with an error	and report the output  of  lo-
       cale.

       Note:  uxterm  may  produce unexpected results if the current locale is
       set to one in which the UTF-8 character encoding	is not	supported,  or
       if fonts	using the ISO 10646-1 character	set are	not available.	In the
       Debian system, the "xfonts-base"	package	provides the fonts that	uxterm
       uses  by	 default.   To change the fonts	uxterm uses, edit the /usr/lo-
       cal/lib/X11/app-defaults/UXTerm file.

       A similar wrapper, koi8rxterm(1), is available for KOI8-R environments.

ENVIRONMENT
       LC_ALL, LC_CTYPE, LANG
	      The values of these variables are	checked, in order,  to	deter-
	      mine the character set used by the current locale.
