NAME
       xterm - terminal	emulator for X

SYNOPSIS
       xterm [-toolkitoption ...] [-option ...]	[shell]

DESCRIPTION
       The  xterm  program is a	terminal emulator for the X Window System.  It
       provides	DEC VT102/VT220	(VTxxx)	and Tektronix 4014  compatible	termi-
       nals  for  programs that	cannot use the window system directly.	If the
       underlying operating system  supports  terminal	resizing  capabilities
       (for  example,  the  SIGWINCH  signal  in systems derived from 4.3bsd),
       xterm will use the facilities to	notify programs	running	in the	window
       whenever	it is resized.

       The  VTxxx  and	Tektronix 4014 terminals each have their own window so
       that you	can edit text in one and look at graphics in the other at  the
       same  time.   To	maintain the correct aspect ratio (height/width), Tek-
       tronix graphics will be restricted to the largest box with a 4014's as-
       pect ratio that will fit	in the window.	This box is located in the up-
       per left	area of	the window.

       Although	both windows may be displayed at the same time,	one of them is
       considered  the "active"	window for receiving keyboard input and	termi-
       nal output.  This is the	window that contains the text cursor.  The ac-
       tive  window  can  be chosen through escape sequences, the "VT Options"
       menu in the VTxxx window, and the "Tek Options" menu in the  4014  win-
       dow.

EMULATIONS
       The  VT102  emulation  is fairly	complete, but does not support autore-
       peat.  Double-size characters  are  displayed  properly	if  your  font
       server  supports	 scalable fonts.  The VT220 emulation does not support
       soft fonts, it is otherwise complete.   Termcap(5)  entries  that  work
       with  xterm  include  an	 optional  platform-specific  entry,  "xterm,"
       "vt102,"	"vt100," "ansi"	and "dumb."  xterm automatically searches  the
       termcap	file  in this order for	these entries and then sets the	"TERM"
       and the "TERMCAP" environment variables.	 You  may  also	 use  "vt220,"
       but  must  set  the terminal emulation level with the decTerminalID re-
       source.	(The "TERMCAP" environment variable is not  set	 if  xterm  is
       linked  against	a terminfo library, since the requisite	information is
       not provided by the termcap emulation of	terminfo libraries).

       Many of the special xterm features may be modified under	 program  con-
       trol  through  a	 set  of  escape sequences different from the standard
       VT102 escape sequences.	(See the Xterm Control Sequences document.)

       The Tektronix 4014 emulation is also fairly good.  It  supports	12-bit
       graphics	 addressing,  scaled  to the window size.  Four	different font
       sizes and five different	lines types are	supported.  There is no	write-
       through	or  defocused  mode  support.  The Tektronix text and graphics
       commands	are recorded internally	by xterm and may be written to a  file
       by sending the COPY escape sequence (or through the Tektronix menu; see
       below).	The name of the	file will be "COPYyyyy-MM-dd.hh:mm:ss",	 where
       yyyy,  MM, dd, hh, mm and ss are	the year, month, day, hour, minute and
       second when the COPY was	performed (the file is created in  the	direc-
       tory xterm is started in, or the	home directory for a login xterm).

       Not all of the features described in this manual	are necessarily	avail-
       able in this version of xterm.  Some (e.g., the	non-VT220  extensions)
       are  available only if they were	compiled in, though the	most commonly-
       used are	in the default configuration.

OTHER FEATURES
       Xterm automatically highlights the text cursor when the pointer	enters
       the  window  (selected) and unhighlights	it when	the pointer leaves the
       window (unselected).  If	the window is the focus	window,	then the  text
       cursor is highlighted no	matter where the pointer is.

       In VT102	mode, there are	escape sequences to activate and deactivate an
       alternate screen	buffer,	which is the same size as the display area  of
       the  window.   When activated, the current screen is saved and replaced
       with the	alternate screen.  Saving of lines scrolled off	the top	of the
       window is disabled until	the normal screen is restored.	The termcap(5)
       entry for xterm allows the visual editor	vi(1) to switch	to the	alter-
       nate  screen  for  editing  and to restore the screen on	exit.  A popup
       menu entry makes	it simple to switch between the	normal	and  alternate
       screens for cut and paste.

       In either VT102 or Tektronix mode, there	are escape sequences to	change
       the name	of the windows.	 Additionally, in VT102	mode, xterm implements
       the window-manipulation control sequences from dtterm, such as resizing
       the window, setting its location	on the screen.

       Xterm allows character-based applications to receive mouse events (cur-
       rently  button-press  and  release events, and button-motion events) as
       keyboard	control	sequences.  See	Xterm Control Sequences	for details.

OPTIONS
       The xterm terminal emulator accepts the standard	X Toolkit command line
       options	as  well  as many application-specific options.	 If the	option
       begins with a `+' instead of a `-', the option is restored to  its  de-
       fault  value.   The  -version and -help options are interpreted even if
       xterm cannot open the display, and are useful for testing and  configu-
       ration scripts:

       -version
	       This  causes  xterm  to	print a	version	number to the standard
	       output.

       -help   This causes xterm to print out a	verbose	message	describing its
	       options,	 one per line.	The message is written to the standard
	       output.	Xterm generates	this message, sorting  it  and	noting
	       whether a "-option" or a	"+option" turns	the feature on or off,
	       since some features historically	have been one  or  the	other.
	       Xterm  generates	 a  concise help message (multiple options per
	       line) when an unknown option is used, e.g.,
		    xterm -z

	       If the logic for	a particular option such  as  logging  is  not
	       compiled	 into xterm, the help text for that option also	is not
	       displayed by the	-help option.

       One parameter (after all	options) may be	given.	That overrides xterm's
       built-in	 choice	 of  shell  program.   Normally	xterm checks the SHELL
       variable.  If that is not set, xterm tries to  use  the	shell  program
       specified  in  the  password  file.   If	 that  is  not set, xterm uses
       /bin/sh.	 If the	parameter names	an executable file,  xterm  uses  that
       instead.	  The parameter	must be	an absolute path, or name a file found
       on the user's PATH (and thereby construct an absolute  path).   The  -e
       option  cannot be used with this	parameter since	it uses	all parameters
       following the option.

       The other options are used to control the appearance and	behavior.  Not
       all options are necessarily configured into your	copy of	xterm:

       -132    Normally,  the  VT102 DECCOLM escape sequence that switches be-
	       tween 80	and 132	column mode is ignored.	  This	option	causes
	       the  DECCOLM  escape  sequence  to be recognized, and the xterm
	       window will resize appropriately.

       -ah     This option indicates that xterm	should	always	highlight  the
	       text cursor.  By	default, xterm will display a hollow text cur-
	       sor whenever the	focus is lost or the pointer leaves  the  win-
	       dow.

       +ah     This  option  indicates	that xterm should do text cursor high-
	       lighting	based on focus.

       -ai     This option disables active icon	support	if  that  feature  was
	       compiled	 into  xterm.  This is equivalent to setting the vt100
	       resource	activeIcon to "false".

       +ai     This option enables active icon support	if  that  feature  was
	       compiled	 into  xterm.  This is equivalent to setting the vt100
	       resource	activeIcon to "true".

       -aw     This option indicates that auto-wraparound should  be  allowed.
	       This  allows  the cursor	to automatically wrap to the beginning
	       of the next line	when it	is at the rightmost position of	a line
	       and text	is output.

       +aw     This  option  indicates	that auto-wraparound should not	be al-
	       lowed.

       -b number
	       This option specifies the size of the inner  border  (the  dis-
	       tance  between  the outer edge of the characters	and the	window
	       border) in pixels.  That	is the vt100 internalBorder  resource.
	       The default is 2.

       +bc     turn  off text cursor blinking.	This overrides the cursorBlink
	       resource.

       -bc     turn on text cursor blinking.  This overrides  the  cursorBlink
	       resource.

       -bcf milliseconds
	       set the amount of time text cursor is off when blinking via the
	       cursorOffTime resource.

       -bcn milliseconds
	       set the amount of time text cursor is on	when blinking via  the
	       cursorOffTime resource.

       -bdc    Set  the	 vt100	resource colorBDMode to	"false", disabling the
	       display of characters with bold attribute as color

       +bdc    Set the vt100 resource colorBDMode to "true", enabling the dis-
	       play  of	 characters  with  bold	attribute as color rather than
	       bold

       -cb     Set the vt100 resource cutToBeginningOfLine to "false".

       +cb     Set the vt100 resource cutToBeginningOfLine to "true".

       -cc characterclassrange:value[,...]
	       This sets classes indicated by the given	ranges	for  using  in
	       selecting  by  words.   See  the	 section  specifying character
	       classes.	 and discussion	of the charClass resource.

       -cjk_width
	       Set the cjkWidth	resource to "true".  When turned  on,  charac-
	       ters  with  East	 Asian Ambiguous (A) category in UTR 11	have a
	       column width of 2.  Otherwise, they have	a column width	of  1.
	       This may	be useful for some legacy CJK text terminal-based pro-
	       grams assuming box drawings and others to have a	 column	 width
	       of  2.  It also should be turned	on when	you specify a TrueType
	       CJK double-width	(bi-width/monospace) font either with  -fa  at
	       the command line	or faceName resource.  The default is "false"

       +cjk_width
	       Reset the cjkWidth resource.

       -class string
	       This  option  allows  you  to  override xterm's resource	class.
	       Normally	it is "XTerm", but can be set to another class such as
	       "UXTerm"	to override selected resources.

       -cm     This  option  disables  recognition of ANSI color-change	escape
	       sequences.  It sets the colorMode resource to "false".

       +cm     This option enables recognition of ANSI color-change escape se-
	       quences.	 This is the same as the vt100 resource	colorMode.

       -cn     This  option indicates that newlines should not be cut in line-
	       mode selections.	 It sets the cutNewline	resource to "false".

       +cn     This option indicates that newlines should be cut in  line-mode
	       selections.  It sets the	cutNewline resource to "true".

       -cr color
	       This  option  specifies	the color to use for text cursor.  The
	       default is to use the same foreground color that	 is  used  for
	       text.  It sets the cursorColor resource according to the	param-
	       eter.

       -cu     This option indicates that xterm	should work around  a  bug  in
	       the more(1) program that	causes it to incorrectly display lines
	       that are	exactly	the width of the window	and are	followed by  a
	       line beginning with a tab (the leading tabs are not displayed).
	       This option is so named because it was originally thought to be
	       a bug in	the curses(3x) cursor motion package.

       +cu     This  option  indicates	that  xterm should not work around the
	       more(1) bug mentioned above.

       -dc     This option disables the	escape sequence	to change dynamic col-
	       ors:  the vt100 foreground and background colors, its text cur-
	       sor color, the pointer cursor foreground	and background colors,
	       the  Tektronix  emulator	 foreground and	background colors, its
	       text cursor color and highlight color.  The option sets the dy-
	       namicColors option to "false".

       +dc     This  option enables the	escape sequence	to change dynamic col-
	       ors.  The option	sets the dynamicColors option to "true".

       -e program [ arguments ... ]
	       This option specifies the program (and its command  line	 argu-
	       ments)  to be run in the	xterm window.  It also sets the	window
	       title and icon name to be the basename of the program being ex-
	       ecuted  if  neither  -T	nor  -n	are given on the command line.
	       This must be the	last option on the command line.

       -en encoding
	       This option determines the encoding on which  xterm  runs.   It
	       sets  the locale	resource.  Encodings other than	UTF-8 are sup-
	       ported by using luit.  The -lc option should be used instead of
	       -en for systems with locale support.

       -fb font
	       This  option  specifies	a font to be used when displaying bold
	       text.  This font	must be	the same height	and width as the  nor-
	       mal  font.   If	only one of the	normal or bold fonts is	speci-
	       fied, it	will be	used as	the normal font	and the	bold font will
	       be  produced  by	 overstriking this font.  The default is to do
	       overstriking of the normal font.	 See also  the	discussion  of
	       boldFont, boldMode and alwaysBoldMode resources.

       -fa pattern
	       This  option  sets  the	pattern	 for  fonts  selected from the
	       FreeType	library	if support for that library was	compiled  into
	       xterm.	This corresponds to the	faceName resource.  When a CJK
	       double-width font is specified, you also	need to	 turn  on  the
	       cjkWidth	 resource.   See  also	the renderFont resource, which
	       combines	with this to determine whether FreeType	fonts are ini-
	       tially active.

       -fbb    This option indicates that xterm	should compare normal and bold
	       fonts bounding boxes to ensure they are	compatible.   It  sets
	       the freeBoldBox resource	to "false".

       +fbb    This  option indicates that xterm should	not compare normal and
	       bold fonts bounding boxes to ensure they	 are  compatible.   It
	       sets the	freeBoldBox resource to	"true".

       -fbx    This  option  indicates	that  xterm should not assume that the
	       normal and bold fonts have VT100	line-drawing  characters.   If
	       any  are	 missing, xterm	will draw the characters directly.  It
	       sets the	forceBoxChars resource to "false".

       +fbx    This option indicates that xterm	should assume that the	normal
	       and bold	fonts have VT100 line-drawing characters.  It sets the
	       forceBoxChars resource to "true".

       -fd pattern
	       This option sets	the pattern for	 double-width  fonts  selected
	       from  the FreeType library if support for that library was com-
	       piled into xterm.  This corresponds to  the  faceNameDoublesize
	       resource.

       -fi font
	       This  option sets the font for active icons if that feature was
	       compiled	into xterm.  See also the discussion of	 the  iconFont
	       resource.

       -fs size
	       This  option  sets  the	pointsize  for fonts selected from the
	       FreeType	library	if support for that library was	compiled  into
	       xterm.  This corresponds	to the faceSize	resource.

       -fw font
	       This  option  specifies the font	to be used for displaying wide
	       text.  By default, it will attempt to use a font	twice as  wide
	       as  the font that will be used to draw normal text.  If no dou-
	       ble-width font is found,	it will	improvise, by  stretching  the
	       normal font.  This corresponds to the wideFont resource.

       -fwb font
	       This  option  specifies the font	to be used for displaying bold
	       wide text.  By default, it will attempt to use a	font twice  as
	       wide  as	 the  font that	will be	used to	draw bold text.	 If no
	       double-width font is found, it will  improvise,	by  stretching
	       the bold	font.  This corresponds	to the wideBoldFont resource.

       -fx font
	       This  option  specifies	the font to be used for	displaying the
	       preedit string in the "OverTheSpot" input method.  See also the
	       discussion of the ximFont resource.

       -hc color
	       (see -selbg).

       -hf     This  option indicates that HP Function Key escape codes	should
	       be generated for	function keys.	It sets	the hpFunctionKeys re-
	       source to "true".

       +hf     This  option indicates that HP Function Key escape codes	should
	       not be generated	for function keys.  It sets the	hpFunctionKeys
	       resource	to "false".

       -hm     Tells  xterm  to	 use  highlightTextColor and highlightColor to
	       override	the reversed foreground/background colors in a	selec-
	       tion.  It sets the highlightColorMode resource to "true".

       +hm     Tells xterm not to use highlightTextColor and highlightColor to
	       override	the reversed foreground/background colors in a	selec-
	       tion.  It sets the highlightColorMode resource to "false".

       -hold   Turn on the hold	resource, i.e.,	xterm will not immediately de-
	       stroy its window	when the shell	command	 completes.   It  will
	       wait  until you use the window manager to destroy/kill the win-
	       dow, or if you use the menu entries that	send a	signal,	 e.g.,
	       HUP or KILL.

       +hold   Turn  off  the  hold resource, i.e., xterm will immediately de-
	       stroy its window	when the shell command completes.

       -ie     Turn on the ptyInitialErase resource, i.e., use the pseudo-ter-
	       minal's sense of	the stty erase value.

       +ie     Turn off	the ptyInitialErase resource, i.e., set	the stty erase
	       value using the kb string from the termcap entry	 as  a	refer-
	       ence, if	available.

       -im     Turn  on	the useInsertMode resource, which forces use of	insert
	       mode by adding appropriate entries to the  TERMCAP  environment
	       variable.

       +im     Turn off	the useInsertMode resource.

       -into windowId
	       Given  an  X  window identifier (a decimal integer), xterm will
	       reparent	its top-level shell widget to that  window.   This  is
	       used to embed xterm within other	applications.

       -j      This  option indicates that xterm should	do jump	scrolling.  It
	       corresponds to the  jumpScroll  resource.   Normally,  text  is
	       scrolled	 one  line at a	time; this option allows xterm to move
	       multiple	lines at a time	so that	it does	not fall  as  far  be-
	       hind.   Its  use	 is  strongly recommended since	it makes xterm
	       much faster when	scanning through large amounts of  text.   The
	       VT100 escape sequences for enabling and disabling smooth	scroll
	       as well as the "VT Options" menu	can be used to turn this  fea-
	       ture on or off.

       +j      This option indicates that xterm	should not do jump scrolling.

       -k8     This  option  sets  the	allowC1Printable  resource.   When al-
	       lowC1Printable is set, xterm overrides the mapping of  C1  con-
	       trol characters (code 128-159) to treat them as printable.

       +k8     This option resets the allowC1Printable resource.

       -kt keyboardtype
	       This  option  sets  the keyboardType resource.  Possible	values
	       include:	"unknown", "default", "hp", "sco", "sun",  "tcap"  and
	       "vt220".

	       The  value  "unknown",  causes the corresponding	resource to be
	       ignored.

	       The value "default", suppresses the  associated	resources  hp-
	       FunctionKeys,  scoFunctionKeys,	sunFunctionKeys, tcapFunction-
	       Keys and	sunKeyboard, using the Sun/PC keyboard layout.

       -l      Turn logging on.	 Normally logging is not supported, due	to se-
	       curity  concerns.   Some	versions of xterm may have logging en-
	       abled.  The logfile is written  to  the	directory  from	 which
	       xterm is	invoked.  The filename is generated, of	the form

		    XtermLog.XXXXXX

	       or

		    Xterm.log.hostname.yyyy.mm.dd.hh.mm.ss.XXXXXX

	       depending on how	xterm was built.

       +l      Turn logging off.

       -lc     Turn  on	 support  of various encodings according to the	users'
	       locale setting, i.e., LC_ALL,  LC_CTYPE,	 or  LANG  environment
	       variables.   This  is  achieved by turning on UTF-8 mode	and by
	       invoking	luit  for  conversion  between	locale	encodings  and
	       UTF-8.	(luit  is  not invoked in UTF-8	locales.)  This	corre-
	       sponds to the locale resource.

	       The actual list of encodings which are supported	is  determined
	       by  luit.   Consult  the	 luit manual page for further details.
	       See also	the discussion of the -u8 option which supports	 UTF-8
	       locales.

       +lc     Turn  off  support  of automatic	selection of locale encodings.
	       Conventional 8bit mode or, in UTF-8 locales or with -u8 option,
	       UTF-8 mode will be used.

       -lcc path
	       File  name  for the encoding converter from/to locale encodings
	       and UTF-8 which is used with -lc	 option	 or  locale  resource.
	       This corresponds	to the localeFilter resource.

       -leftbar
	       Force  scrollbar	to the left side of VT100 screen.  This	is the
	       default,	unless you have	set the	rightScrollBar resource.

       -lf filename
	       Specify the log-filename.  See the -l option.

       -ls     This option indicates that the shell that  is  started  in  the
	       xterm  window  will be a	login shell (i.e., the first character
	       of argv[0] will be a dash, indicating  to  the  shell  that  it
	       should read the user's .login or	.profile).

	       The  -ls	 flag and the loginShell resource are ignored if -e is
	       also given, because xterm does not know how to make  the	 shell
	       start the given command after whatever it does when it is a lo-
	       gin shell - the user's shell of choice need  not	 be  a	Bourne
	       shell  after all.  Also,	xterm -e is supposed to	provide	a con-
	       sistent functionality for other applications that need to start
	       text-mode  programs in a	window,	and if loginShell were not ig-
	       nored, the result of ~/.profile might interfere with that.

	       If you do want the effect of -ls	and -e simultaneously, you may
	       get away	with something like
		      xterm -e /bin/bash -l -c "my command here"

	       Finally,	 -ls  is  not completely ignored, because xterm	-ls -e
	       does write a /etc/wtmp entry (if	configured to do so),  whereas
	       xterm -e	does not.

       -maximized
	       This  option indicates that xterm should	ask the	window manager
	       to maximize its layout on startup.   This  corresponds  to  the
	       maximized resource.

	       Maximizing  is not the reverse of iconifying; it	is possible to
	       do both with certain window managers.

       +maximized
	       This option indicates that xterm	should ask the window  manager
	       to maximize its layout on startup.

       +ls     This option indicates that the shell that is started should not
	       be a login shell	(i.e., it will be a normal "subshell").

       -mb     This option indicates that xterm	should ring a margin bell when
	       the user	types near the right end of a line.

       +mb     This option indicates that margin bell should not be rung.

       -mc milliseconds
	       This  option specifies the maximum time between multi-click se-
	       lections.

       -mesg   Turn off	the messages resource, i.e., disallow write access  to
	       the terminal.

       +mesg   Turn  on	the messages resource, i.e., allow write access	to the
	       terminal.

       -mk_width
	       Set the mkWidth resource	to "true".  This  makes	 xterm	use  a
	       built-in	 version of the	wide-character width calculation.  The
	       default is "false"

       +mk_width
	       Reset the mkWidth resource.

       -ms color
	       This option specifies the color to be used for the pointer cur-
	       sor.   The  default  is to use the foreground color.  This sets
	       the pointerColor	resource.

       -nb number
	       This option specifies the number	of characters from  the	 right
	       end  of a line at which the margin bell,	if enabled, will ring.
	       The default is 10.

       -nul    This option disables the	display	of underlining.

       +nul    This option enables the display of underlining.

       -pc     This option enables the PC-style	use of bold colors (see	 bold-
	       Colors resource).

       +pc     This option disables the	PC-style use of	bold colors.

       -pob    This option indicates that the window should be raised whenever
	       a Control-G is received.

       +pob    This option indicates that the  window  should  not  be	raised
	       whenever	a Control-G is received.

       -rightbar
	       Force scrollbar to the right side of VT100 screen.

       -rvc    This option disables the	display	of characters with reverse at-
	       tribute as color.

       +rvc    This option enables the display of characters with reverse  at-
	       tribute as color.

       -rw     This  option  indicates	that  reverse-wraparound should	be al-
	       lowed.  This allows the cursor to back  up  from	 the  leftmost
	       column  of  one	line  to  the rightmost	column of the previous
	       line.  This is very useful for editing long shell command lines
	       and  is	encouraged.  This option can be	turned on and off from
	       the "VT Options"	menu.

       +rw     This option indicates that reverse-wraparound should not	be al-
	       lowed.

       -s      This  option  indicates	that  xterm may	scroll asynchronously,
	       meaning that the	screen does not	have to	be kept	completely  up
	       to  date	while scrolling.  This allows xterm to run faster when
	       network latencies are very high and is  typically  useful  when
	       running across a	very large internet or many gateways.

       +s      This option indicates that xterm	should scroll synchronously.

       -samename
	       Does  not send title and	icon name change requests when the re-
	       quest would have	no effect: the name is not changed.  This  has
	       the advantage of	preventing flicker and the disadvantage	of re-
	       quiring an extra	round trip to the server to find out the  pre-
	       vious value.  In	practice this should never be a	problem.

       +samename
	       Always send title and icon name change requests.

       -sb     This  option  indicates	that  some  number  of	lines that are
	       scrolled	off the	top of the window should be saved and  that  a
	       scrollbar  should  be  displayed	 so  that  those  lines	can be
	       viewed.	This option may	be turned on and off from the "VT  Op-
	       tions" menu.

       +sb     This option indicates that a scrollbar should not be displayed.

       -selbg color
	       This  option  specifies	the color to use for the background of
	       selected	text.  If not specified, reverse video is  used.   See
	       the discussion of the highlightColor resource.

       -selfg color
	       This  option  specifies the color to use	for selected text.  If
	       not specified, reverse video is used.  See  the	discussion  of
	       the highlightTextColor resource.

       -sf     This option indicates that Sun Function Key escape codes	should
	       be generated for	function keys.

       +sf     This option indicates that the standard escape codes should  be
	       generated for function keys.

       -si     This  option indicates that output to a window should not auto-
	       matically reposition the	screen to the bottom of	the  scrolling
	       region.	 This option can be turned on and off from the "VT Op-
	       tions" menu.

       +si     This option indicates that output to a window should  cause  it
	       to scroll to the	bottom.

       -sk     This  option  indicates	that  pressing	a  key while using the
	       scrollbar to review previous lines of  text  should  cause  the
	       window  to be repositioned automatically	in the normal position
	       at the bottom of	the scroll region.

       +sk     This option indicates that  pressing  a	key  while  using  the
	       scrollbar should	not cause the window to	be repositioned.

       -sl number
	       This  option  specifies	the  number of lines to	save that have
	       been scrolled off the top of the	screen.	 This  corresponds  to
	       the saveLines resource.	The default is 64.

       -sm     This  option,  corresponding  to	the sessionMgt resource, indi-
	       cates that xterm	should set up session manager callbacks.

       +sm     This option indicates that xterm	should not set up session man-
	       ager callbacks.

       -sp     This  option  indicates that Sun/PC keyboard should be assumed,
	       providing mapping for keypad "+'	to ",',	and  CTRL-F1  to  F13,
	       CTRL-F2 to F14, etc.

       +sp     This  option indicates that the standard	escape codes should be
	       generated for keypad and	function keys.

       -t      This option indicates that  xterm  should  start	 in  Tektronix
	       mode,  rather  than  in	VT102 mode.  Switching between the two
	       windows is done using the "Options" menus.  Termcap(5)  entries
	       that   work   with   xterm   "tek4014,"	"tek4015,"  "tek4012,"
	       "tek4013," "tek4010," and "dumb."  xterm	automatically searches
	       the  termcap file in this order for these entries and then sets
	       the "TERM" and the "TERMCAP" environment	variables.

       +t      This option indicates that xterm	should start in	VT102 mode.

       -tb     This option, corresponding to the toolBar  resource,  indicates
	       that  xterm should display a toolbar (or	menubar) at the	top of
	       its window.  The	buttons	in the toolbar correspond to the popup
	       menus, e.g., control/left/mouse for "Main Options".

       +tb     This option indicates that xterm	should not set up a toolbar.

       -ti term_id
	       Specify	the  name used by xterm	to select the correct response
	       to terminal ID queries.	It also	specifies the emulation	level,
	       used  to	 determine  the	 type  of response to a	DA control se-
	       quence.	Valid values include vt52, vt100,  vt101,  vt102,  and
	       vt220  (the  "vt"  is  optional).   The	default	is vt100.  The
	       term_id argument	specifies the terminal ID to  use.   (This  is
	       the same	as the decTerminalID resource).

       -tm string
	       This  option  specifies	a  series of terminal setting keywords
	       followed	by the characters that should be bound to those	 func-
	       tions,  similar	to  the	 stty program.	The keywords and their
	       values are described in detail in the ttyModes resource.

       -tn name
	       This option specifies the name of the terminal type to  be  set
	       in  the	TERM  environment  variable.   It  corresponds	to the
	       termName	resource.  This	terminal type must exist in the	termi-
	       nal  database  (termcap	or terminfo, depending on how xterm is
	       built) and should have li# and co# entries.   If	 the  terminal
	       type  is	 not  found,  xterm  uses  the	built-in list "xterm",
	       "vt102",	etc.

       -u8     This option sets	the utf8 resource.  When utf8  is  set,	 xterm
	       interprets incoming data	as UTF-8.  This	sets the wideChars re-
	       source as a side-effect,	but the	UTF-8 mode set by this	option
	       prevents	 it from being turned off.  If you must	turn it	on and
	       off, use	the wideChars resource.

	       This option and the utf8	resource are overridden	by the -lc and
	       -en  options  and  locale resource.  That is, if	xterm has been
	       compiled	to support  luit,  and	the  locale  resource  is  not
	       "false" this option is ignored.	We recommend using the -lc op-
	       tion or the "locale: true" resource in UTF-8 locales when  your
	       operating  system  supports  locale, or -en UTF-8 option	or the
	       "locale:	UTF-8" resource	when your operating  system  does  not
	       support locale.

       +u8     This option resets the utf8 resource.

       -uc     This option makes the cursor underlined instead of a box.

       +uc     This option makes the cursor a box instead of underlined.

       -ulc    This  option  disables the display of characters	with underline
	       attribute as color rather than with underlining.

       +ulc    This option enables the display of  characters  with  underline
	       attribute as color rather than with underlining.

       -ulit   This  option,  corresponding to the italicULMode	resource, dis-
	       ables the display of characters	with  underline	 attribute  as
	       italics rather than with	underlining.

       +ulit   This  option,  corresponding  to	the italicULMode resource, en-
	       ables the display of characters	with  underline	 attribute  as
	       italics rather than with	underlining.

       -ut     This option indicates that xterm	should not write a record into
	       the the system utmp log file.

       +ut     This option indicates that xterm	should write a record into the
	       system utmp log file.

       -vb     This  option  indicates that a visual bell is preferred over an
	       audible one.  Instead of	ringing	the terminal bell  whenever  a
	       Control-G is received, the window will be flashed.

       +vb     This option indicates that a visual bell	should not be used.

       -wc     This  option  sets  the	wideChars resource.  When wideChars is
	       set, xterm maintains internal structures	for 16-bit characters.
	       If  you	do  not	set this resource to "true", xterm will	ignore
	       the escape sequence which turns UTF-8 mode on and off.  The de-
	       fault is	"false".

       +wc     This option resets the wideChars	resource.

       -wf     This  option indicates that xterm should	wait for the window to
	       be mapped the first time	before starting	the subprocess so that
	       the  initial  terminal  size settings and environment variables
	       are correct.  It	is the application's responsibility  to	 catch
	       subsequent terminal size	changes.

       +wf     This  option indicates that xterm should	not wait before	start-
	       ing the subprocess.

       -ziconbeep percent
	       Same as zIconBeep resource.  If	percent	 is  non-zero,	xterms
	       that  produce  output while iconified will cause	an XBell sound
	       at the given volume and have "***" prepended to their icon  ti-
	       tles.   Most  window  managers  will detect this	change immedi-
	       ately, showing you which	window has  the	 output.   (A  similar
	       feature was in x10 xterm.)

       -C      This  option  indicates that this window	should receive console
	       output.	This is	not supported on all systems.  To obtain  con-
	       sole  output,  you must be the owner of the console device, and
	       you must	have read and write permission for  it.	  If  you  are
	       running	X under	xdm on the console screen you may need to have
	       the session startup and reset programs  explicitly  change  the
	       ownership  of the console device	in order to get	this option to
	       work.

       -Sccn   This option allows xterm	to be used  as	an  input  and	output
	       channel	for  an	existing program and is	sometimes used in spe-
	       cialized	applications.  The option value	specifies the last few
	       letters	of the name of a pseudo-terminal to use	in slave mode,
	       plus the	number of the inherited	file descriptor.  If  the  op-
	       tion  contains  a  "/"  character, that delimits	the characters
	       used for	the pseudo-terminal name  from	the  file  descriptor.
	       Otherwise,  exactly two characters are used from	the option for
	       the pseudo-terminal name, the remainder is the file descriptor.
	       Examples:
		      -S123/45
		      -Sab34

	       Note that xterm does not	close any file descriptor which	it did
	       not open	for its	own use.  It is	possible (though probably  not
	       portable)  to have an application which passes an open file de-
	       scriptor	down to	xterm past the initialization or the -S	option
	       to a process running in the xterm.

       The  following  command	line  arguments	are provided for compatibility
       with older versions.  They may not be supported in the next release  as
       the X Toolkit provides standard options that accomplish the same	task.

       %geom   This  option  specifies	the preferred size and position	of the
	       Tektronix window.  It is	shorthand for specifying the  "*tekGe-
	       ometry" resource.

	#geom  This  option  specifies the preferred position of the icon win-
	       dow.  It	is shorthand for specifying  the  "*iconGeometry"  re-
	       source.

       -T string
	       This  option  specifies	the  title for xterm's windows.	 It is
	       equivalent to -title.

       -n string
	       This option specifies the icon name for xterm's windows.	 It is
	       shorthand  for  specifying the "*iconName" resource.  Note that
	       this is not the same as the toolkit option -name	 (see  below).
	       The default icon	name is	the application	name.

       -r      This option indicates that reverse video	should be simulated by
	       swapping	the foreground and background colors.  It  is  equiva-
	       lent to -rv.

       -w number
	       This  option  specifies	the width in pixels of the border sur-
	       rounding	the window.  It	is equivalent to -borderwidth or -bw.

       The following standard X	Toolkit	command	line  arguments	 are  commonly
       used with xterm:

       -bd color
	       This  option  specifies	the color to use for the border	of the
	       window.	xterm uses the X Toolkit default, which	is "XtDefault-
	       Foreground".

       -bg color
	       This  option  specifies	the color to use for the background of
	       the window.  The	default	is "XtDefaultBackground."

       -bw number
	       This option specifies the width in pixels of  the  border  sur-
	       rounding	the window.

	       This  appears  to be a legacy of	older X	releases.  It sets the
	       borderWidth resource of the shell widget, and may  provide  ad-
	       vice  to	your window manager to set the thickness of the	window
	       frame.  Most window managers do not use this information.   See
	       the  -b	option,	 which	controls the inner border of the xterm
	       window.

       -display	display
	       This option specifies the X server to contact; see X().

       -fg color
	       This option specifies the color to  use	for  displaying	 text.
	       The default is "XtDefaultForeground."

       -fn font
	       This option specifies the font to be used for displaying	normal
	       text.  The default is fixed.

       -font font
	       This is the same	as -fn.

       -geometry geometry
	       This option specifies the preferred size	and  position  of  the
	       VT102 window; see X().

       -iconic This  option indicates that xterm should	ask the	window manager
	       to start	it as an icon rather than as the normal	window.

       -name name
	       This option specifies the  application  name  under  which  re-
	       sources	are to be obtained, rather than	the default executable
	       file name.  Name	should not contain "." or "*" characters.

       -rv     This option indicates that reverse video	should be simulated by
	       swapping	the foreground and background colors.

       +rv     Disable	the simulation of reverse video	by swapping foreground
	       and background colors.

       -title string
	       This option specifies the window	title  string,	which  may  be
	       displayed  by  window managers if the user so chooses.  The de-
	       fault title is the command line specified after the -e  option,
	       if any, otherwise the application name.

       -xrm resourcestring
	       This  option  specifies	a resource string to be	used.  This is
	       especially useful for setting resources that do not have	 sepa-
	       rate command line options.

RESOURCES
       The  program  understands  all of the core X Toolkit resource names and
       classes.	 Application specific resources	(e.g., "XTerm.NAME") follow:

       backarrowKeyIsErase (class BackarrowKeyIsErase)
	       Tie the VTxxx backarrowKey and  ptyInitialErase	resources  to-
	       gether  by  setting  the	 DECBKM	state according	to whether the
	       initial value of	stty erase is a	backspace (8) or delete	 (127)
	       character.   The	 default  is "false", which disables this fea-
	       ture.

       hold (class Hold)
	       If true,	xterm will not immediately destroy its window when the
	       shell command completes.	 It will wait until you	use the	window
	       manager to destroy/kill the window, or if you use the menu  en-
	       tries  that  send  a signal, e.g., HUP or KILL.	You may	scroll
	       back, select text, etc.,	to perform most	graphical  operations.
	       Resizing	 the  display  will lose data, however,	since this in-
	       volves interaction with the shell which is no longer running.

       hpFunctionKeys (class HpFunctionKeys)
	       Specifies whether or not	HP Function Key	escape codes should be
	       generated  for  function	 keys  instead	of standard escape se-
	       quences.	 See also the keyboardType resource.

       iconGeometry (class IconGeometry)
	       Specifies the preferred size and	position  of  the  application
	       when  iconified.	  It  is  not necessarily obeyed by all	window
	       managers.

       iconName	(class IconName)
	       Specifies the icon name.	 The default is	the application	name.

       keyboardType (class KeyboardType)
	       Enables one (or none) of	the various  keyboard-type  resources:
	       hpFunctionKeys, scoFunctionKeys,	sunFunctionKeys, tcapFunction-
	       Keys and	sunKeyboard.  The resource's value should  be  one  of
	       the   corresponding  strings  "hp",  "sco",  "sun",  "tcap"  or
	       "vt220".	 The individual	resources are provided for legacy sup-
	       port; this resource is simpler to use.

       maxBufSize (class MaxBufSize)
	       Specify	the  maximum size of the input buffer.	The default is
	       32768.  You cannot set this to a	value less than	the minBufSize
	       resource.   It  will  be	increased as needed to make that value
	       evenly divide this one.

	       On some systems you may want to increase	one  or	 both  of  the
	       maxBufSize  and	minBufSize  resource  values to	achieve	better
	       performance if  the  operating  system  prefers	larger	buffer
	       sizes.

       maximized (class	Maximized)
	       Specifies whether or not	xterm should ask the window manager to
	       maximize	its layout on startup.	The default is "false."

       messages	(class Messages)
	       Specifies whether write access to the terminal is allowed  ini-
	       tially.	See mesg(1).  The default is "true".

       menuLocale (class MenuLocale)
		Specify	 the  locale  used for character-set computations when
		loading	the popup menus.  Use this to  improve	initialization
		performance of the Athena popup	menus, which may load unneces-
		sary (and very large) fonts, e.g., in a	 locale	 having	 UTF-8
		encoding.  The default is the "C" (POSIX).

		To  use	 the current locale (only useful if you	have localized
		the resource settings for the menu entries), set the  resource
		to an empty string.

       minBufSize (class MinBufSize)
	       Specify	the minimum size of the	input buffer, i.e., the	amount
	       of data that xterm requests on each read.  The default is 4096.
	       You cannot set this to a	value less than	64.

       ptyHandshake (class PtyHandshake)
	       If "true", xterm	will perform handshaking during	initialization
	       to ensure that the parent and child processes update  the  utmp
	       and  stty  state.   See	also  waitForMap  which	 waits for the
	       pseudo-terminal's notion	of the screen  size,  and  ptySttySize
	       which  resets  the screen size after other terminal initializa-
	       tion is complete.  The default is "true".

       ptyInitialErase (class PtyInitialErase)
	       If "true", xterm	will use the pseudo-terminal's	sense  of  the
	       stty  erase  value.   If	"false", xterm will set	the stty erase
	       value to	match its own configuration, using the kb string  from
	       the  termcap  entry  as	a  reference, if available.  In	either
	       case, the result	is applied to the TERMCAP variable which xterm
	       sets.   See  also the ttyModes resource,	which may modify this.
	       The default is "false".

       ptySttySize (class PtySttySize)
	       If "true", xterm	will reset the screen size after terminal ini-
	       tialization is complete.	 This is needed	for some systems whose
	       pseudo-terminals	 cannot	 propagate  terminal  characteristics.
	       Where it	is not needed, it can interfere	with other methods for
	       setting the intial screen size, e.g., via window	manager	inter-
	       action.	 See  also waitForMap which waits for a	handshake-mes-
	       sage giving the pseudo-terminal's notion	of  the	 screen	 size.
	       The default is "false" on Linux and OS X	systems, "true"	other-
	       wise.

       sameName	(class SameName)
	       If the value of this resource is	"true",	xterm  does  not  send
	       title and icon name change requests when	the request would have
	       no effect: the name is not changed.  This has the advantage  of
	       preventing  flicker  and	the disadvantage of requiring an extra
	       round trip to the server	to find	out the	 previous  value.   In
	       practice	 this  should  never  be  a  problem.	The default is
	       "true".

       scoFunctionKeys (class ScoFunctionKeys)
	       Specifies whether or not	SCP Function Key escape	 codes	should
	       be  generated  for function keys	instead	of standard escape se-
	       quences.	 See also the keyboardType resource.

       sessionMgt (class SessionMgt)
	       If the value of this resource is	"true",	xterm sets up  session
	       manager	callbacks for XtNdieCallback and XtNsaveCallback.  The
	       default is "true".

       sunFunctionKeys (class SunFunctionKeys)
	       Specifies whether or not	Sun Function Key escape	 codes	should
	       be  generated  for function keys	instead	of standard escape se-
	       quences.	 See also the keyboardType resource.

       sunKeyboard (class SunKeyboard)
	       Specifies whether or not	Sun/PC keyboard	layout should  be  as-
	       sumed  rather than DEC VT220.  This causes the keypad "+' to be
	       mapped to ",'.  and CTRL	F1-F12 to F11-F20,  depending  on  the
	       setting	of  the	 ctrlFKeys  resource.  so xterm	emulates a DEC
	       VT220 more accurately.  Otherwise (the  default,	 with  sunKey-
	       board  set  to  "false"),  xterm	uses PC-style bindings for the
	       function	keys and keypad.

	       PC-style	bindings use the Shift,	Alt, Control and Meta keys  as
	       modifiers  for function-keys and	keypad (see the	document Xterm
	       Control Sequences for  details).	  The  PC-style	 bindings  are
	       analogous  to  PCTerm,  but not the same	thing.	Normally these
	       bindings	do not conflict	with the use of	the Meta  key  as  de-
	       scribed	for the	eightBitInput resource.	 If they do, note that
	       the PC-style bindings are evaluated first.  See also  the  key-
	       boardType resource.

       tcapFunctionKeys	(class TcapFunctionKeys)
	       Specifies  whether  or  not function key	escape codes read from
	       the termcap/terminfo entry should  be  generated	 for  function
	       keys  instead  of standard escape sequences.  See also the key-
	       boardType resource.

       termName	(class TermName)
	       Specifies the terminal type name	to be set in the TERM environ-
	       ment variable.

       title (class Title)
	       Specifies  a string that	may be used by the window manager when
	       displaying this application.

       toolBar (class ToolBar)
	       Specifies whether or not	the toolbar should be displayed.   The
	       default is "true."

       ttyModes	(class TtyModes)
	       Specifies a string containing terminal setting keywords and the
	       characters to which they	may be bound.  Allowable keywords  in-
	       clude:  brk, dsusp, eof,	eol, eol2, erase, erase2, flush, intr,
	       kill, lnext, quit, rprnt, start,	status,	stop, susp, swtch  and
	       weras.	Control	characters may be specified as ^char (e.g., ^c
	       or ^u) and ^? may be used to indicate delete (127).  Use	^-  to
	       denote  undef.  Use \034	to represent ^\, since a literal back-
	       slash in	an X resource escapes the next character.

	       This is very useful for overriding the  default	terminal  set-
	       tings  without  having  to  do  an  stty	every time an xterm is
	       started.	 Note, however,	that the stty program on a given  host
	       may use different keywords; xterm's table is built-in.

	       If  the	ttyModes  resource  specifies  a value for erase, that
	       overrides the ptyInitialErase  resource	setting,  i.e.,	 xterm
	       initializes the terminal	to match that value.

       useInsertMode (class UseInsertMode)
	       Force  use  of insert mode by adding appropriate	entries	to the
	       TERMCAP environment variable.  This is  useful  if  the	system
	       termcap is broken.  The default is "false."

       utmpDisplayId (class UtmpDisplayId)
	       Specifies whether or not	xterm should try to record the display
	       identifier (display number and screen number) as	 well  as  the
	       hostname	in the system utmp log file.  The default is "true."

       utmpInhibit (class UtmpInhibit)
	       Specifies  whether or not xterm should try to record the	user's
	       terminal	in the system utmp log file.  If true, xterm will  not
	       try.  The default is "false."

       waitForMap (class WaitForMap)
	       Specifies whether or not	xterm should wait for the initial win-
	       dow map before starting the subprocess.	This is	 part  of  the
	       ptyHandshake  logic.   When  xterm  is directed to wait in this
	       fashion,	it passes the terminal size from the  display  end  of
	       the  pseudo-terminal  to	the terminal I/O connection, e.g., ac-
	       cording to the window manager.  Otherwise, it uses the size  as
	       given in	resource values	or command-line	option -geom.  The de-
	       fault is	"false."

       zIconBeep (class	ZIconBeep)
	       Same as -ziconbeep command line argument.  If the value of this
	       resource	 is  non-zero, xterms that produce output while	iconi-
	       fied will cause an XBell	sound at the  given  volume  and  have
	       "***"  prepended	 to  their  icon titles.  Most window managers
	       will detect this	change immediately, showing you	 which	window
	       has the output.	(A similar feature was in x10 xterm.)  The de-
	       fault is	"false."

   VT100 Widget	Resources
       The following resources are specified  as  part	of  the	 vt100	widget
       (class	 VT100).    They   are	 specified   by	  patterns   such   as
       "XTerm.vt100.NAME".

       If your xterm is	configured to support the "toolbar", then  those  pat-
       terns  need  an extra level for the form-widget which holds the toolbar
       and vt100 widget.  A wildcard between the  top-level  "XTerm"  and  the
       "vt100"	widget	makes  the  resource  settings	work for either, e.g.,
       "XTerm*vt100.NAME".

       activeIcon (class ActiveIcon)
	       Specifies whether or not	active icon windows  are  to  be  used
	       when the	xterm window is	iconified, if this feature is compiled
	       into xterm.  The	active icon is a miniature  representation  of
	       the  content  of	 the  window  and  will	 update	as the content
	       changes.	 Not all window	managers necessarily support  applica-
	       tion  icon windows.  Some window	managers will allow you	to en-
	       ter keystrokes into the active icon  window.   The  default  is
	       "false."

       allowC1Printable	(class AllowC1Printable)
	       If  true,  overrides the	mapping	of C1 controls (codes 128-159)
	       to make them be treated as if they were	printable  characters.
	       Although	this corresponds to no particular standard, some users
	       insist it is a VT100.  The default is "false."

       allowColorOps (class AllowColorOps)
	       Specifies whether control sequences that	set/query the  dynamic
	       colors  should  be allowed.  ANSI colors	are unaffected by this
	       resource	setting.  The default is "true."

       allowFontOps (class AllowFontOps)
	       Specifies whether control sequences  that  set/query  the  font
	       should be allowed.  The default is "true."

       allowScrollLock (class AllowScrollLock)
	       Specifies  whether  control sequences that set/query the	Scroll
	       Lock key	should be allowed, as well as whether the Scroll  Lock
	       key responds to user's keypress.	 The default is	"true."

       allowSendEvents (class AllowSendEvents)
	       Specifies  whether or not synthetic key and button events (gen-
	       erated using the	X protocol SendEvent request) should be	inter-
	       preted  or  discarded.  The default is "false" meaning they are
	       discarded.  Note	that allowing such events creates a very large
	       security	 hole,	and  forcefully	 disables  the allowXXXOps re-
	       sources.	 The default is	"false."

       allowTcapOps (class AllowTcapOps)
	       Specifies whether control sequences that	query  the  terminal's
	       notion  of its function-key strings, as termcap or terminfo ca-
	       pabilities should be allowed.  The default is "false."

	       A few programs, e.g,. vim, use this feature to get an  accurate
	       description  of the terminal's capabilities, independent	of the
	       termcap/terminfo	setting:

	       -  xterm	can tell the querying program how many colors it  sup-
		  ports.  This is a constant, depending	on how it is compiled,
		  typically 16.	 It does not change if you alter resource set-
		  tings, e.g., the boldColors resource.

	       -  xterm	can tell the querying program what strings are sent by
		  modified (shift-, control-, alt-) function- and keypad-keys.
		  Reporting  control-  and alt-modifiers is a feature that re-
		  lies on the ncurses extended naming.

       allowTitleOps (class AllowTitleOps)
	       Specifies whether control sequences that	modify the window  ti-
	       tle or icon name	should be allowed.  The	default	is "true."

       allowWindowOps (class AllowWindowOps)
	       Specifies whether extended window control sequences (as used in
	       dtterm) should be allowed.  These include several  control  se-
	       quences	which  manipulate the window size or position, as well
	       as reporting these values and the title or icon name.  Each  of
	       these can be abused in a	script;	curiously enough most terminal
	       emulators that implement	these restrict only a  small  part  of
	       the repertoire.	For fine-tuning, see disallowedWindowOps.  The
	       default is "false."

       altIsNotMeta (class AltIsNotMeta)
	       If "true", treat	the Alt-key as if it were the Meta-key.	  Your
	       keyboard	may happen to be configured so they are	the same.  But
	       if they are not,	this allows you	to use the  same  prefix-  and
	       shifting	operations with	the Alt-key as with the	Meta-key.  See
	       altSendsEscape and metaSendsEscape.  The	default	is "false."

       altSendsEscape (class AltSendsEscape)
	       This is an additional keyboard operation	that may be  processed
	       after  the  logic for metaSendsEscape.  It is only available if
	       the altIsNotMeta	resource is set.

	       If "true", Alt characters (a character combined with the	 modi-
	       fier  associated	with left/right	Alt-keys) are converted	into a
	       two-character sequence with the character  itself  preceded  by
	       ESC.   This  applies as well to function	key control sequences,
	       unless xterm sees that Alt is used in  your  key	 translations.
	       If  "false",  Alt  characters  input  from the keyboard cause a
	       shift to	8-bit characters (just like metaSendsEscape).  By com-
	       bining  the Alt-	and Meta-modifiers, you	can create correspond-
	       ing combinations	of ESC-prefix and 8-bit	characters.   The  de-
	       fault is	"false."

       alwaysBoldMode (class AlwaysBoldMode)
	       Specifies  whether  xterm  should  check	if the normal and bold
	       fonts are distinct before deciding whether to use  overstriking
	       to  simulate  bold fonts.  If this resource is true, xterm does
	       not make	the check for distinct fonts when deciding how to han-
	       dle the boldMode	resource.  The default is "false."

	       boldMode	  alwaysBoldMode   Comparison	Action
	       ----------------------------------------------------
	       false	  false		   ignored	use font
	       false	  true		   ignored	use font
	       true	  false		   same		overstrike
	       true	  false		   different	use font
	       true	  true		   ignored	overstrike

       alwaysHighlight (class AlwaysHighlight)
	       Specifies  whether  or  not xterm should	always display a high-
	       lighted text cursor.  By	default	(if this resource is false), a
	       hollow  text cursor is displayed	whenever the pointer moves out
	       of the window or	the window loses the input focus.  The default
	       is "false."

       alwaysUseMods (class AlwaysUseMods)
	       Override	the numLock resource, telling xterm to use the Alt and
	       Meta modifiers to construct parameters  for  function  key  se-
	       quences	even if	those modifiers	appear in the translations re-
	       source.	Normally xterm checks if Alt or	 Meta  is  used	 in  a
	       translation  that  would	 conflict with function	key modifiers,
	       and will	ignore these modifiers in that special case.  The  de-
	       fault is	"false."

       answerbackString	(class AnswerbackString)
	       Specifies  the  string  that  xterm sends in response to	an ENQ
	       (control/E) character from the host.  The default  is  a	 blank
	       string,	i.e., "".  A hardware VT100 implements this feature as
	       a setup option.

       appcursorDefault	(class AppcursorDefault)
	       If "true," the cursor keys are initially	in  application	 mode.
	       This  is	the same as the	VT102 private DECCKM mode, The default
	       is "false."

       appkeypadDefault	(class AppkeypadDefault)
	       If "true," the keypad keys are initially	in  application	 mode.
	       The default is "false."

       autoWrap	(class AutoWrap)
	       Specifies  whether  or  not  auto-wraparound should be enabled.
	       This is the same	as the VT102 DECAWM.  The default is "true."

       awaitInput (class AwaitInput)
	       Specifies whether or not	the xterm uses a 50 millisecond	 time-
	       out  to	await  input (i.e., to support the Xaw3d arrow scroll-
	       bar).  The default is "false."

       backarrowKey (class BackarrowKey)
	       Specifies whether the backarrow key transmits a	backspace  (8)
	       or delete (127) character.  This	corresponds to the DECBKM con-
	       trol sequence.  The default (backspace)	is  "true."   Pressing
	       the control key toggles this behavior.

       background (class Background)
	       Specifies  the  color  to use for the background	of the window.
	       The default is "XtDefaultBackground."

       bellIsUrgent (class BellIsUrgent)
	       Specifies whether to set	the Urgency hint for the  window  man-
	       ager when making	a bell sound.  The default is "false."

       bellOnReset (class BellOnReset)
	       Specifies whether to sound a bell when doing a hard reset.  The
	       default is "true."

       bellSuppressTime	(class BellSuppressTime)
	       Number of milliseconds after a  bell  command  is  sent	during
	       which additional	bells will be suppressed.  Default is 200.  If
	       set non-zero, additional	bells will also	 be  suppressed	 until
	       the  server  reports that processing of the first bell has been
	       completed; this feature is most useful with the visible bell.

       boldColors (class ColorMode)
	       Specifies whether to combine bold attribute  with  colors  like
	       the  IBM	 PC,  i.e., map	colors 0 through 7 to colors 8 through
	       15.  These normally are the brighter versions of	 the  first  8
	       colors, hence bold.  The	default	is "true."

       boldFont	(class BoldFont)
	       Specifies  the  name  of	 the bold font to use instead of over-
	       striking.  There	is no default for this resource.

       boldMode	(class BoldMode)
	       This specifies whether or not  text  with  the  bold  attribute
	       should  be  overstruck  to  simulate bold fonts if the resolved
	       bold font is the	same as	the normal font.  It may be  desirable
	       to disable bold fonts when color	is being used for the bold at-
	       tribute.

	       Note that xterm has one bold font which you may set explicitly.
	       Xterm  attempts to derive a bold	font for the other font	selec-
	       tions (font1 through font6).  If	it cannot find a bold font, it
	       will  use  the normal font.  In each case (whether the explicit
	       resource	or the derived font), if the normal and	bold fonts are
	       distinct, this resource has no effect.  The default is "true."

	       See  the	 alwaysBoldMode	resource which can modify the behavior
	       of this resource.

	       Although	xterm attempts to derive a bold	font  for  other  font
	       selections,  the	 font  server may not cooperate.  Since	X11R6,
	       bitmap fonts have been scaled.  The font	server claims to  pro-
	       vide  the  bold font that xterm requests, but the result	is not
	       always readable.	 XFree86 provides a feature which can be  used
	       to  suppress the	scaling.  In the X server's configuration file
	       (e.g., "/etc/X11/XFree86"), you can add ":unscaled" to the  end
	       of the directory	specification for the "misc" fonts, which com-
	       prise the fixed-pitch fonts that	are used by xterm.  For	 exam-
	       ple
		       FontPath		"/usr/lib/X11/fonts/misc/"

	       would become
		       FontPath		"/usr/lib/X11/fonts/misc/:unscaled"

	       Depending  on  your configuration, the font server may have its
	       own configuration file.	The same ":unscaled" can be  added  to
	       its  configuration  file	at the end of the directory specifica-
	       tion for	"misc".

	       The bitmap scaling feature is also used by xterm	 to  implement
	       VT102 double-width and double-height characters.

       brokenLinuxOSC (class BrokenLinuxOSC)
	       If true,	xterm applies a	workaround to ignore malformed control
	       sequences that a	Linux script might send.  Compare the  palette
	       control	sequences  documented  in  console_codes with ECMA-48.
	       The default is "true."

       brokenSelections	(class BrokenSelections)
	       If true,	xterm in 8-bit mode will interpret  STRING  selections
	       as  carrying  text  in the current locale's encoding.  Normally
	       STRING selections carry ISO-8859-1 encoded text.	 Setting  this
	       resource	to "true" violates the ICCCM; it may, however, be use-
	       ful for interacting with	some broken X clients.	The default is
	       "false."

       brokenStringTerm	(class BrokenStringTerm)
	       provides	a work-around for some ISDN routers which start	an ap-
	       plication control string	without	completing it.	 Set  this  to
	       "true" if xterm appears to freeze when connecting.  The default
	       is "false."

       c132 (class C132)
	       Specifies whether or not	the  VT102  DECCOLM  escape  sequence,
	       used  to	 switch	between	80 and 132 columns, should be honored.
	       The default is "false."

       cacheDoublesize (class CacheDoublesize)
	       Tells whether to	cache double-sized fonts by xterm.   Set  this
	       to zero to disable double-sized fonts altogether.

       charClass (class	CharClass)
	       Specifies  comma-separated lists	of character class bindings of
	       the form	[low-]high:value.  These are used in determining which
	       sets  of	 characters  should be treated the same	when doing cut
	       and paste.  See the CHARACTER CLASSES section.

       cjkWidth	(class CjkWidth)
	       Specifies whether xterm	should	follow	the  traditional  East
	       Asian  width  convention.  When turned on, characters with East
	       Asian Ambiguous (A) category in UTR 11 have a column  width  of
	       2.   You	may have to set	this option to "true" if you have some
	       old East	Asian terminal based programs that assume  that	 line-
	       drawing	characters have	a column width of 2.  If this resource
	       is false, the mkWidth resource controls the choice between  the
	       system's	 wcwidth  and xterm's built-in tables.	The default is
	       "false."

       color0 (class Color0)

       color1 (class Color1)

       color2 (class Color2)

       color3 (class Color3)

       color4 (class Color4)

       color5 (class Color5)

       color6 (class Color6)

       color7 (class Color7)
	       These specify the colors	for the	ISO-6429 extension.   The  de-
	       faults  are, respectively, black, red3, green3, yellow3,	a cus-
	       tomizable dark blue, magenta3, cyan3, and gray90.  The  default
	       shades  of color	are chosen to allow the	colors 8-15 to be used
	       as brighter versions.

       color8 (class Color8)

       color9 (class Color9)

       color10 (class Color10)

       color11 (class Color11)

       color12 (class Color12)

       color13 (class Color13)

       color14 (class Color14)

       color15 (class Color15)
	       These specify the colors	for the	ISO-6429 extension if the bold
	       attribute is also enabled.  The default resource	values are re-
	       spectively, gray30, red,	green, yellow,	a  customizable	 light
	       blue, magenta, cyan, and	white.

       color16 (class Color16)

       through

       color255	(class Color255)
	       These  specify the colors for the 256-color extension.  The de-
	       fault resource values are for colors 16 through 231 to  make  a
	       6x6x6  color  cube,  and	 colors	 232  through  255  to	make a
	       grayscale ramp.

	       Resources past color15 are available as a compile-time  option.
	       Due to a	hardcoded limit	in the X libraries on the total	number
	       of resources (to	400), the resources for	256-colors are omitted
	       when  wide-character support and	luit are enabled.  Besides in-
	       consistent behavior if only part	of the resources were allowed,
	       determining  the	exact cutoff is	difficult, and the X libraries
	       tend to crash if	the number of  resources  exceeds  the	limit.
	       The color palette is still initialized to the same default val-
	       ues, and	can be modified	via control sequences.

	       On the other hand, the resource limit does permit including the
	       entire range for	88-colors.

       colorAttrMode (class ColorAttrMode)
	       Specifies whether colorBD, colorBL, colorRV, and	colorUL	should
	       override	ANSI colors.  If not, these are	displayed only when no
	       ANSI  colors have been set for the corresponding	position.  The
	       default is "false."

       colorBD (class ColorBD)
	       This specifies the color	to use to display bold	characters  if
	       the  "colorBDMode"  resource is enabled.	 The default is	"XtDe-
	       faultForeground."

       colorBDMode (class ColorAttrMode)
	       Specifies whether characters with the bold attribute should  be
	       displayed  in  color  or	as bold	characters.  Note that setting
	       colorMode off disables all colors, including bold.  The default
	       is "false."

       colorBL (class ColorBL)
	       This  specifies the color to use	to display blink characters if
	       the "colorBLMode" resource is enabled.  The default  is	"XtDe-
	       faultForeground."

       colorBLMode (class ColorAttrMode)
	       Specifies whether characters with the blink attribute should be
	       displayed in color.  Note that setting colorMode	 off  disables
	       all colors, including this.  The	default	is "false."

       colorMode (class	ColorMode)
	       Specifies  whether  or not recognition of ANSI (ISO-6429) color
	       change escape sequences should  be  enabled.   The  default  is
	       "true."

       colorRV (class ColorRV)
	       This  specifies	the color to use to display reverse characters
	       if the "colorRVMode"  resource  is  enabled.   The  default  is
	       "XtDefaultForeground."

       colorRVMode (class ColorAttrMode)
	       Specifies  whether characters with the reverse attribute	should
	       be displayed in color.  Note that setting  colorMode  off  dis-
	       ables all colors, including this.  The default is "false."

       colorUL (class ColorUL)
	       This  specifies	the color to use to display underlined charac-
	       ters if the "colorULMode" resource is enabled.  The default  is
	       "XtDefaultForeground."

       colorULMode (class ColorAttrMode)
	       Specifies  whether  characters  with  the  underline  attribute
	       should be displayed in color or as underlined characters.  Note
	       that  setting  colorMode	off disables all colors, including un-
	       derlining.  The default is "false."

       combiningChars (class CombiningChars)
	       Specifies the number of wide-characters which can be stored  in
	       a  cell	to overstrike (combine)	with the base character	of the
	       cell.  This can be set to values	in the range 0 to 4.  The  de-
	       fault is	"2".

       ctrlFKeys (class	CtrlFKeys)
	       In  VT220  keyboard  mode (see sunKeyboard resource), specifies
	       the amount by which to shift F1-F12 given  a  control  modifier
	       (CTRL).	This allows you	to generate key	symbols	for F10-F20 on
	       a Sun/PC	keyboard.  The default is "10",	which means that  CTRL
	       F1 generates the	key symbol for F11.

       curses (class Curses)
	       Specifies  whether or not the last column bug in	more(1)	should
	       be worked around.  See the -cu option for details.  The default
	       is "false."

       cursorBlink (class CursorBlink)
	       Specifies  whether  to  make  the cursor	blink.	The default is
	       "false."

       cursorColor (class CursorColor)
	       Specifies the color to use for the text cursor.	The default is
	       "XtDefaultForeground."  By default, xterm attempts to keep this
	       color from being	the same as the	 background  color,  since  it
	       draws the cursor	by filling the background of a text cell.  The
	       same restriction	applies	to control sequences which may	change
	       this color.

	       Setting	this resource overrides	most of	xterm's	adjustments to
	       cursor color.  It will still use	reverse-video to disallow some
	       cases, such as a	black cursor on	a black	background.

       cursorOffTime (class CursorOffTime)
	       Specifies  the  duration	 of the	"off" part of the cursor blink
	       cycle-time in milliseconds.  The	same timer is  used  for  text
	       blinking.  The default is 300.

       cursorOnTime (class CursorOnTime)
	       Specifies the duration of the "on" part of the cursor blink cy-
	       cle-time, in milliseconds.  The same timer  is  used  for  text
	       blinking.  The default is 600.

       cutNewline (class CutNewline)
	       If  "false",  triple clicking to	select a line does not include
	       the Newline at the end of the line.  If "true", the Newline  is
	       selected.  The default is "true."

       cursorUnderLine (class CursorUnderLine)
	       Specifies  whether to make the cursor underlined	or a box.  The
	       default is "false."

       cutToBeginningOfLine (class CutToBeginningOfLine)
	       If "false", triple clicking to select a line selects only  from
	       the  current  word  forward.  If	"true",	the entire line	is se-
	       lected.	The default is "true."

       decTerminalID (class DecTerminalID)
	       Specifies the emulation	level  (100=VT100,  220=VT220,	etc.),
	       used  to	 determine  the	 type  of response to a	DA control se-
	       quence.	 Leading  non-digit  characters	 are  ignored,	 e.g.,
	       "vt100" and "100" are the same.	The default is 100.

       defaultString (class DefaultString)
	       Specify	the  character (or string) which xterm will substitute
	       when pasted text	includes a character which  cannot  be	repre-
	       sented  in  the	current	encoding.  For instance, pasting UTF-8
	       text into a display of ISO-8859-1 characters will only be  able
	       to  display  codes  0-255, while	UTF-8 text can include Unicode
	       values above 255.  The default is "#" (a	single pound sign).

	       If the undisplayable text would be double-width,	xterm will add
	       a  space	after the "#" character, to give roughly the same lay-
	       out on the screen as the	original text.

       deleteIsDEL (class DeleteIsDEL)
	       Specifies whether the Delete key	on the editing	keypad	should
	       send  DEL (127) or the VT220-style Remove escape	sequence.  The
	       default is "false," for the latter.

       disallowedColorOps (class DisallowedColorOps)
	       Specify which features will be  disabled	 if  allowColorOps  is
	       false.	This  is a comma-separated list	of names.  The default
	       value is
	       SetColor,GetColor,GetAnsiColor

	       The names are listed below.  xterm ignores capitalization,  but
	       they are	shown in mixed-case for	clarity.

	       SetColor
		    Set	a specific dynamic color.

	       GetColor
		    Report the current setting of a given dynamic color.

	       GetAnsiColor
		    Report the current setting of a given ANSI color (actually
		    any	of the colors set via ANSI-style controls).

       disallowedFontOps (class	DisallowedFontOps)
	       Specify which features will  be	disabled  if  allowFontOps  is
	       false.	This  is a comma-separated list	of names.  The default
	       value is
	       SetFont,GetFont

	       The names are listed below.  xterm ignores capitalization,  but
	       they are	shown in mixed-case for	clarity.

	       SetFont
		    Set	the specified font.

	       GetFont
		    Report the specified font.

       disallowedTcapOps (class	DisallowedTcapOps)
	       Specify	which  features	 will  be  disabled if allowTcapOps is
	       false.  This is a comma-separated list of names.	  The  default
	       value is
	       SetTcap,GetTcap

	       The  names are listed below.  xterm ignores capitalization, but
	       they are	shown in mixed-case for	clarity.

	       SetTcap
		    (not implemented)

	       GetTcap
		    Report specified function- and other special keys.

       disallowedWindowOps (class DisallowedWindowOps)
	       Specify which features will be disabled	if  allowWindowOps  is
	       false.	This  is  a comma-separated list of names, or (for the
	       controls	adapted	from dtterm the	operation  number).   The  de-
	       fault value is
	       20,21,SetXprop,SetSelection

	       The  names are listed below.  xterm ignores capitalization, but
	       they are	shown in mixed-case for	clarity.  Where	a  number  can
	       be used as an alternative, it is	given in parentheses after the
	       name.

	       GetIconTitle (20)
		    Report xterm window's icon label as	a string.

	       GetScreenSizeChars (19)
		    Report the size of the screen in characters	as numbers.

	       GetSelection
		    Report selection data as a base64 string.

	       GetWinPosition (13)
		    Report xterm window	position as numbers.

	       GetWinSizeChars (18)
		    Report the size of the text	area in	characters as numbers.

	       GetWinSizePixels	(14)
		    Report xterm window	in pixels as numbers.

	       GetWinState (11)
		    Report xterm window	state as a number.

	       GetWinTitle (21)
		    Report xterm window's title	as a string.

	       LowerWin	(6)
		    Lower the xterm window to the bottom of the	 stacking  or-
		    der.

	       MaximizeWin (9)
		    Maximize window (i.e., resize to screen size).

	       MinimizeWin (2)
		    Iconify window.

	       PopTitle	(23)
		    Pop	title from internal stack.

	       PushTitle (22)
		    Push title to internal stack.

	       RaiseWin	(5)
		    Raise the xterm window to the front	of the stacking	order.

	       RefreshWin (7)
		    Refresh the	xterm window.

	       RestoreWin (1)
		    De-iconify window.

	       SetSelection
		    Set	selection data.

		    Move window	to given coordinates.

	       SetWinSizeChars (8)
		    Resize the text area to given size in characters.

	       SetWinSizePixels	(4)
		    Resize the xterm window to given size in pixels.

	       SetXprop
		    Set	X property on top-level	window.

       dynamicColors (class DynamicColors)
	       Specifies  whether or not escape	sequences to change colors as-
	       signed to different attributes are recognized.

       eightBitControl (class EightBitControl)
	       Specifies whether or not	control	sequences sent by the terminal
	       should  be  eight-bit  characters or escape sequences.  The de-
	       fault is	"false."

       eightBitInput (class EightBitInput)
	       If "true", Meta characters (a  single-byte  character  combined
	       with  the  Meta	modifier key) input from the keyboard are pre-
	       sented as a single character with the  eighth  bit  turned  on.
	       The  terminal is	put into 8-bit mode.  If "false", Meta charac-
	       ters are	converted into a two-character sequence	with the char-
	       acter  itself  preceded by ESC.	On startup, xterm tries	to put
	       the terminal into 7-bit mode.  The metaSendsEscape and altSend-
	       sEscape resources may override this.  The default is "true."

	       Generally keyboards do not have a key labeled "Meta", but "Alt"
	       keys are	common,	and they are conventionally used  for  "Meta".
	       If  they	were synonymous, it would have been reasonable to name
	       this resource "altSendsEscape", reversing its sense.  For  more
	       background on this, see the meta	function in curses.

	       Note  that  the Alt key is not necessarily the same as the Meta
	       modifier.  xmodmap lists	your key modifiers.  X	defines	 modi-
	       fiers  for  shift,  (caps) lock and control, as well as 5 addi-
	       tional modifiers	which are generally used to configure key mod-
	       ifiers.	 xterm inspects	the same information to	find the modi-
	       fier associated with either Meta	key (left or right), and  uses
	       that  key  as the Meta modifier.	 It also looks for the NumLock
	       key, to recognize the modifier which is associated with that.

	       If your xmodmap configuration uses the same keycodes  for  Alt-
	       and  Meta-keys,	xterm  will  only see the Alt-key definitions,
	       since those are tested before  Meta-keys.   NumLock  is	tested
	       first.	It is important	to keep	these keys distinct; otherwise
	       some of xterm's functionality is	not available.

       eightBitOutput (class EightBitOutput)
	       Specifies whether or not	eight-bit  characters  sent  from  the
	       host  should  be	 accepted as is	or stripped when printed.  The
	       default is "true," which	means that they	are accepted as	is.

       eightBitSelectTypes (class EightBitSelectTypes)
	       Override	 xterm's  default  selection  target  list  (see   SE-
	       LECT/PASTE)  for	 selections  in	normal (ISO-8859-1) mode.  The
	       default is an empty string, which does not override anything.

       faceName	(class FaceName)
	       Specify the pattern for fonts selected from  the	 FreeType  li-
	       brary  if  support  for	that  library was compiled into	xterm.
	       There is	no default.  If	not specified, or if there is no match
	       for both	normal and bold	fonts, xterm uses the font and related
	       resources.

       faceNameDoublesize (class FaceNameDoublesize)
	       Specify an double-width font for	cases where an application re-
	       quires  this,  e.g., in CJK applications.  There	is no default.
	       If the application uses double-wide  characters	and  this  re-
	       source  is  not	given, xterm  will use a scaled	version	of the
	       font given by faceName.

       faceSize	(class FaceSize)
	       Specify the pointsize for fonts selected	from the FreeType  li-
	       brary if	support	for that library was compiled into xterm.  The
	       default is "14."	 On the	VT Fonts menu, this corresponds	to the
	       Default entry.

	       You  can	specify	the pointsize for TrueType fonts selected with
	       the other size-related menu entries such	as Medium, Huge, etc.,
	       by  using  one of the following resource	values.	 If you	do not
	       specify a value,	they default to	"0.0", which causes  xterm  to
	       use  the	ratio of font sizes from the corresponding bitmap font
	       resources to obtain a TrueType pointsize.

	       If all of the faceSize resources	are set, then xterm  will  use
	       this  information to determine the next smaller/larger TrueType
	       font for	the larger-vt-font()  and  smaller-vt-font()  actions.
	       If any are not set, xterm will use only the areas of the	bitmap
	       fonts.

       faceSize1 (class	FaceSize1)
	       Specifies the pointsize of the first alternative	font.

       faceSize2 (class	FaceSize2)
	       Specifies the pointsize of the second alternative font.

       faceSize3 (class	FaceSize3)
	       Specifies the pointsize of the third alternative	font.

       faceSize4 (class	FaceSize4)
	       Specifies the pointsize of the fourth alternative font.

       faceSize5 (class	FaceSize5)
	       Specifies the pointsize of the fifth alternative	font.

       faceSize6 (class	FaceSize6)
	       Specifies the pointsize of the sixth alternative	font.

       font (class Font)
	       Specifies the name of the normal	font.  The default is "fixed."

	       See the discussion of the locale	resource, which	describes  how
	       this font may be	overridden.

	       NOTE: some resource files use patterns such as
	       *font: fixed

	       which are overly	broad, affecting both
	       xterm.vt100.font

	       and
	       xterm.vt100.utf8fonts.font

	       which is	probably not what you intended.

       fastScroll (class FastScroll)
	       Modifies	 the effect of jump scroll (jumpScroll)	by suppressing
	       screen refreshes	for the	special	case when output to the	screen
	       has  completely shifted the contents off-screen.	 For instance,
	       cat'ing a large file to the screen does this.

       font1 (class Font1)
	       Specifies the name of the first alternative font.

       font2 (class Font2)
	       Specifies the name of the second	alternative font.

       font3 (class Font3)
	       Specifies the name of the third alternative font.

       font4 (class Font4)
	       Specifies the name of the fourth	alternative font.

       font5 (class Font5)
	       Specifies the name of the fifth alternative font.

       font6 (class Font6)
	       Specifies the name of the sixth alternative font.

       fontDoublesize (class FontDoublesize)
	       Specifies whether xterm should attempt to use font  scaling  to
	       draw  double-sized  characters.	Some older font	servers	cannot
	       do this properly, will return misleading	font metrics.  The de-
	       fault is	"true".	 If disabled, xterm will simulate double-sized
	       characters by drawing normal  characters	 with  spaces  between
	       them.

       fontWarnings (class FontWarnings)
	       Specify	whether	 xterm	should	report an error	if it fails to
	       load a font:

	       0    Never report an error (though the X	libraries may).

	       1    Report an error if the font	name was given as  a  resource
		    setting.

	       2    Always report an error on failure to load a	font.

       forceBoxChars (class ForceBoxChars)
	       Specifies whether xterm should assume the normal	and bold fonts
	       have VT100 line-drawing characters:

	       -    The	fixed-pitch ISO-8859-*-encoded	fonts  used  by	 xterm
		    normally have the VT100 line-drawing glyphs	in cells 1-31.
		    Other fixed-pitch fonts may	be more	attractive,  but  lack
		    these glyphs.

	       -    When  using	an ISO-10646-1 font and	the wideChars resource
		    is true, xterm uses	the Unicode  glyphs  which  match  the
		    VT100 line-drawing glyphs.

	       If  "false",  xterm  checks  for	missing	glyphs in the font and
	       makes line-drawing characters directly as needed.   If  "true",
	       xterm  assumes the font does not	contain	the line-drawing char-
	       acters, and draws them directly.	 The default is	"false."

       forcePackedFont (class ForcePackedFont)
	       Specifies whether xterm should use the maximum or minimum glyph
	       width  when  displaying	using  a bitmap	font.  Use the maximum
	       width to	help with proportional fonts.  The default is  "true,"
	       denoting	the minimum width.

       foreground (class Foreground)
	       Specifies  the  color to	use for	displaying text	in the window.
	       Setting the class name instead of the instance name is an  easy
	       way  to	have everything	that would normally appear in the text
	       color change color.  The	default	is "XtDefaultForeground."

       formatOtherKeys (class FormatOtherKeys)
	       Overrides the format of the escape sequence used	to report mod-
	       ified keys with the modifyOtherKeys resource.

	       0  send	modified  keys	as parameters for function-key 27 (de-
		  fault).

	       1  send modified	keys as	parameters for CSI u.

       freeBoldBox (class FreeBoldBox)
	       Specifies whether xterm should assume the  bounding  boxes  for
	       normal  and  bold fonts are compatible.	If "false", xterm com-
	       pares them and will reject choices of bold fonts	 that  do  not
	       match  the  size	 of  the normal	font.  The default is "false",
	       which means that	the comparison is performed.

       geometry	(class Geometry)
	       Specifies the preferred size and	position of the	VT102  window.
	       There is	no default for this resource.

       highlightColor (class HighlightColor)
	       Specifies  the  color  to  use  for  the	background of selected
	       (highlighted) text.  If not specified (i.e., matching  the  de-
	       fault  foreground),  reverse  video  is	used.	The default is
	       "XtDefaultForeground."

       highlightColorMode (class HighlightColorMode)
	       Specifies whether xterm should use highlightTextColor and high-
	       lightColor  to override the reversed foreground/background col-
	       ors in a	selection.  The	default	is  unspecified:  at  startup,
	       xterm checks if those resources are set to something other than
	       the default foreground and background colors.  Setting this re-
	       source disables the check.

	       The  following  table shows the interaction of the highlighting
	       resources, abbreviated as shown to fit in this page:

	       HCM
		  highlightColorMode

	       HR highlightReverse

	       HBG
		  highlightColor

	       HFG
		  highlightTextColor

	       default	 true	 set	   set	     HFG/HBG
	       ------------------------------------------------------

       highlightReverse	(class HighlightReverse)
	       Specifies whether xterm should reverse the selection foreground
	       and  background	colors	when selecting text with reverse-video
	       attribute.  This	applies	only to	the highlightColor  and	 high-
	       lightTextColor  resources,  e.g.,  to match the color scheme of
	       xwsh.  If "true", xterm reverses	the colors, If "false",	 xterm
	       does not	reverse	colors,	The default is "true."

       highlightSelection (class HighlightSelection)
	       If  "false",  selecting with the	mouse highlights all positions
	       on the screen between the beginning of the  selection  and  the
	       current	position.   If "true", xterm highlights	only the posi-
	       tions that contain text that can	be selected.  The  default  is
	       "false."

	       Depending  on  the  way	your applications write	to the screen,
	       there may be trailing blanks on a line.	Xterm stores  data  as
	       it is shown on the screen.  Erasing the display changes the in-
	       ternal state of each cell so it is not considered a  blank  for
	       the  purpose of selection.  Blanks written since	the last erase
	       are selectable.	If you do not wish to have trailing blanks  in
	       a selection, use	the trimSelection resource.

       highlightTextColor (class HighlightTextColor)
	       Specifies  the  color  to  use  for  the	foreground of selected
	       (highlighted) text.  If not specified (i.e., matching  the  de-
	       fault  background),  reverse  video  is	used.	The default is
	       "XtDefaultBackground."

       hpLowerleftBugCompat (class HpLowerleftBugCompat)
	       Specifies whether to work around	a bug in HP's xdb,  which  ig-
	       nores  termcap and always sends ESC F to	move to	the lower left
	       corner.	"true" causes xterm to interpret ESC F as a request to
	       move  to	 the  lower left corner	of the screen.	The default is
	       "false."

       i18nSelections (class I18nSelections)
	       If false, xterm will not	request	the targets  COMPOUND_TEXT  or
	       TEXT.   The  default is "true." It may be set to	false in order
	       to work around ICCCM violations by other	X clients.

       iconBorderColor (class BorderColor)
	       Specifies the border color for the active icon window  if  this
	       feature	is  compiled into xterm.  Not all window managers will
	       make the	icon border visible.

       iconBorderWidth (class BorderWidth)
	       Specifies the border width for the active icon window  if  this
	       feature	is  compiled  into  xterm.  The	default	is 2.  Not all
	       window managers will make the border visible.

       iconFont	(class IconFont)
	       Specifies the font for the miniature  active  icon  window,  if
	       this feature is compiled	into xterm.  The default is "nil2".

       initialFont (class InitialFont)
	       Specifies  which	 of  the VT100 fonts to	use initially.	Values
	       are the same as for the set-vt-font  action.   The  default  is
	       "d", i.e., "default".

       inputMethod (class XtCInputMethod)
	       Tells xterm which type of input method to use.  There is	no de-
	       fault method.

       internalBorder (class BorderWidth)
	       Specifies the number of pixels between the characters  and  the
	       window border.  The default is 2.

       italicULMode (class ColorAttrMode)
	       Specifies  whether  characters  with  the  underline  attribute
	       should be displayed in an italic	font or	as underlined  charac-
	       ters.  It is implemented	only for TrueType fonts.

       jumpScroll (class JumpScroll)
	       Specifies whether or not	jump scroll should be used.  This cor-
	       responds	to the VT102 DECSCLM private  mode.   The  default  is
	       "true."	See fastScroll for a variation.

       keepSelection (class KeepSelection)
	       Specifies  whether xterm	will keep the selection	even after the
	       selected	area was touched by some output	to the terminal.   The
	       default is "true".

       keyboardDialect (class KeyboardDialect)
	       Specifies  the initial keyboard dialect,	as well	as the default
	       value when the terminal is reset.  The value given is the  same
	       as  the	final  character in the	control	sequences which	change
	       character sets.	The default is "B", which  corresponds	to  US
	       ASCII.

       nameKeymap (class NameKeymap)
	       See the discussion of the keymap() action.

       limitResize (class LimitResize)
	       Limits  resizing	 of the	screen via control sequence to a given
	       multiple	of the display dimensions.  The	default	is "1".

       locale (class Locale)
	       Specifies how to	use luit, an encoding converter	between	 UTF-8
	       and  locale  encodings.	The resource value (ignoring case) may
	       be:

	       true
		   xterm  will	use  the  encoding  specified  by  the	users'
		   LC_CTYPE locale (i.e., LC_ALL, LC_CTYPE, or LANG variables)
		   as far as possible.	This is	realized  by  always  enabling
		   UTF-8 mode and invoking luit	in non-UTF-8 locales.

	       medium
		   xterm  will	follow	users' LC_CTYPE	locale only for	UTF-8,
		   east	Asian, and Thai	locales, where the encodings were  not
		   supported  by  conventional	8bit mode with changing	fonts.
		   For other locales, xterm will use conventional 8bit mode.

	       checkfont
		   If mini-luit	is compiled-in,	xterm will check if a  Unicode
		   font	has been specified.  If	so, it checks if the character
		   encoding for	 the  current  locale  is  POSIX,  Latin-1  or
		   Latin-9, uses the appropriate mapping to support those with
		   the Unicode font.  For other	encodings, xterm assumes  that
		   UTF-8 encoding is required.

	       false
		   xterm will use conventional 8bit mode or UTF-8 mode accord-
		   ing to utf8 resource	or -u8 option.

	       Any other value,	e.g., "UTF-8" or "ISO8859-2", is assumed to be
	       an encoding name; luit will be invoked to support the encoding.
	       The actual list of supported encodings depends  on  luit.   The
	       default is "medium".

	       Regardless of your locale and encoding, you need	an ISO-10646-1
	       font to display the result.  Your configuration may not include
	       this  font,  or	locale-support by xterm	may not	be needed.  At
	       startup,	xterm uses a  mechanism	 equivalent  to	 the  load-vt-
	       fonts(utf8Fonts,	Utf8Fonts)  action  to	load  font name	subre-
	       sources of the VT100 widget.  That is, resource	patterns  such
	       as  "*vt100.utf8Fonts.font"  will  be  loaded, and (if this re-
	       source is enabled), override the	normal fonts.	If  no	subre-
	       sources	are  found,  the  normal  fonts	such as	"*vt100.font",
	       etc., are used.	The resource files distributed with xterm  use
	       ISO-10646-1 fonts, but do not rely on them unless you are using
	       the locale mechanism.

       localeFilter (class LocaleFilter)
	       Specifies the file name for the encoding	converter from/to  lo-
	       cale  encodings	and UTF-8 which	is used	with the -lc option or
	       locale resource.	 The help message shown	by "xterm -help" lists
	       the default value, which	depends	on your	system configuration.

	       If the encoding converter requires command-line parameters, you
	       should put those	within a shell	script	to  execute  the  con-
	       verter, and set this resource to	point to the shell script.

       loginShell (class LoginShell)
	       Specifies  whether  or  not  the	 shell to be run in the	window
	       should be started as a login shell.  The	default	is "false."

       marginBell (class MarginBell)
	       Specifies whether or not	the bell should	be rung	when the  user
	       types near the right margin.  The default is "false."

       metaSendsEscape (class MetaSendsEscape)
	       If  "true", Meta	characters (a character	combined with the Meta
	       modifier	key) are converted into	a two-character	sequence  with
	       the  character itself preceded by ESC.  This applies as well to
	       function	key control sequences, unless xterm sees that Meta  is
	       used in your key	translations.  If "false", Meta	characters in-
	       put from	the keyboard are handled according to the  eightBitIn-
	       put resource.  The default is "false."

       mkSamplePass (class MkSamplePass)
	       If  mkSampleSize	 is  nonzero,  and  mkWidth (and cjkWidth) are
	       false, on startup xterm compares	its  built-in  tables  to  the
	       system's	wide character width data to decide if it will use the
	       system's	data.  It tests	the first mkSampleSize character  val-
	       ues,  and  allows up to mkSamplePass mismatches before the test
	       fails.  The default (for	the allowed number of  mismatches)  is
	       256.

       mkSampleSize (class MkSampleSize)
	       With  mkSamplePass, this	specifies a startup test used for ini-
	       tializing wide character	width calculations.  The default (num-
	       ber of characters to check) is 1024.

       mkWidth (class MkWidth)
	       Specifies  whether  xterm  should use a built-in	version	of the
	       wide character width calculation.  See also  the	 cjkWidth  re-
	       source which can	override this.	The default is "false."

	       Here  is	a summary of the resources which control the choice of
	       wide character width calculation:

	       cjkWidth	  mkWidth   Action
	       ---------------------------------------------------------------
	       false	  false	    use	system tables subject to mkSamplePass
	       false	  true	    use	built-in tables
	       true	  false	    use	built-in CJK tables
	       true	  true	    use	built-in CJK tables

       modifyCursorKeys	(class ModifyCursorKeys)
	       Tells how to handle the special case  where  Control-,  Shift-,
	       Alt-  or	 Meta-modifiers	are used to add	a parameter to the es-
	       cape sequence returned by a cursor-key.	The default is "2":

	       Set it to -1 to disable it.
	       Set it to 0 to use the old/obsolete behavior.
	       Set it to 1 to prefix modified sequences	with CSI.
	       Set it to 2 to force the	modifier to be the second parameter if
	       it would	otherwise be the first.
	       Set  it to 3 to mark the	sequence with a	">" to hint that it is
	       private.

       modifyFunctionKeys (class ModifyFunctionKeys)
	       Tells how to handle the special case  where  Control-,  Shift-,
	       Alt-  or	 Meta-modifiers	are used to add	a parameter to the es-
	       cape sequence returned by a (numbered) function-key.   The  de-
	       fault  is  "2".	 The resource values are similar to modifyCur-
	       sorKeys:

	       Set it to -1 to permit the user to use shift- and control-modi-
	       fiers to	construct function-key strings using the normal	encod-
	       ing scheme.
	       Set it to 0 to use the old/obsolete behavior.
	       Set it to 1 to prefix modified sequences	with CSI.
	       Set it to 2 to force the	modifier to be the second parameter if
	       it would	otherwise be the first.
	       Set  it to 3 to mark the	sequence with a	">" to hint that it is
	       private.

	       If modifyFunctionKeys is	zero, xterm uses Control-  and	Shift-
	       modifiers to allow the user to construct	numbered function-keys
	       beyond the set provided by the keyboard:

	       Control
		    adds the value given by the	ctrlFKeys resource.

	       Shift
		    adds twice the value given by the ctrlFKeys	resource.

	       Control/Shift
		    adds three times the value	given  by  the	ctrlFKeys  re-
		    source.

	       As  a  special  case,  legacy (when oldFunctionKeys is true) or
	       vt220 (when sunKeyboard is true)	keyboards interpret  only  the
	       Control-modifier	  when	constructing  numbered	function-keys.
	       This is done to provide compatible keyboards for	DEC VT220  and
	       related terminals that implement	user-defined keys (UDK).

       modifyOtherKeys (class ModifyOtherKeys)
	       Like  modifyCursorKeys,	tells xterm to construct an escape se-
	       quence for other	keys (such as "2") when	modified by  Control-,
	       Alt-  or	 Meta-modifiers.  This feature does not	apply to func-
	       tion keys and well-defined keys such  as	 ESC  or  the  control
	       keys.  The default is "0":

	       0    disables this feature.

	       1    enables  this feature for keys except for those with well-
		    known behavior, e.g., Tab, Backarrow and some special con-
		    trol character cases, e.g.,	Control-Space to make a	NUL.

	       2    enables  this  feature  for	 keys including	the exceptions
		    listed.

       multiClickTime (class MultiClickTime)
	       Specifies the maximum time in milliseconds between  multi-click
	       select events.  The default is 250 milliseconds.

       multiScroll (class MultiScroll)
	       Specifies  whether  or  not  scrolling  should  be  done	 asyn-
	       chronously.  The	default	is "false."

       nMarginBell (class Column)
	       Specifies the number of characters from	the  right  margin  at
	       which  the  margin  bell	 should	 be  rung, when	enabled	by the
	       marginBell resource.  The default is 10.

       numLock (class NumLock)
	       If "true", xterm	checks if NumLock is used as a	modifier  (see
	       xmodmap(1)).   If  so,  this  modifier  is used to simplify the
	       logic when implementing special NumLock for the sunKeyboard re-
	       source.	 Also  (when  sunKeyboard  is false), similar logic is
	       used to find the	modifier associated with the  left  and	 right
	       Alt keys.  The default is "true."

       oldXtermFKeys (class OldXtermFKeys)
	       If "true", xterm	will use old-style control sequences for func-
	       tion keys F1 to F4, for compatibility with X Consortium	xterm.
	       Otherwise,  it  uses the	VT100-style codes for PF1 to PF4.  The
	       default is "false."

       on2Clicks (class	On2Clicks)

       on3Clicks (class	On3Clicks)

       on4Clicks (class	On4Clicks)

       on5Clicks (class	On5Clicks)
	       Specify	selection  behavior  in	 response  to  multiple	 mouse
	       clicks.	 A  single  mouse  click  is always interpreted	as de-
	       scribed in the SELECTION	section	(see POINTER USAGE).  Multiple
	       mouse clicks (using the button which activates the select-start
	       action) are interpreted according to  the  resource  values  of
	       on2Clicks, etc.	The resource value can be one of these:

	       word
		  Select  a  "word"  as	 determined by the charClass resource.
		  See the CHARACTER CLASSES section.

	       line
		  Select a line	(counting wrapping).

	       group
		  Select a group of adjacent lines (counting  wrapping).   The
		  selection stops on a blank line, and does not	extend outside
		  the current page.

	       page
		  Select all visible lines, i.e., the page.

	       all
		  Select all lines, i.e., including the	saved lines.

	       regex
		  Select a "word" as  determined  by  the  regular  expression
		  which	follows	in the resource	value.

	       none
		  No selection action is associated with this resource.	 xterm
		  interprets it	as the end of the list.	 For example, you  may
		  use  it  to  disable triple (and higher) clicking by setting
		  on3Clicks to "none".

	       The default values for on2Clicks	and on3Clicks are  "word"  and
	       "line",	respectively.  There is	no default value for on4Clicks
	       or on5Clicks, making those inactive.  On	startup, xterm	deter-
	       mines  the  maximum  number of clicks by	the onXClicks resource
	       values which are	set.

       openIm (class XtCOpenIm)
	       Tells xterm whether to open the input method at	startup.   The
	       default is "true".

       pointerColor (class PointerColor)
	       Specifies  the foreground color of the pointer.	The default is
	       "XtDefaultForeground."

       pointerColorBackground (class PointerColorBackground)
	       Specifies the background	color of the pointer.  The default  is
	       "XtDefaultBackground."

       pointerMode (class PointerMode)
	       Specifies when the pointer may be hidden	as the user types.  It
	       will be redisplayed if the user moves the mouse,	or clicks  one
	       of its buttons.

	       0  never

	       1  the  application  running  in	 xterm has not activated mouse
		  mode.	 This is the default.

	       2  always.

       pointerShape (class Cursor)
	       Specifies the name of the shape of the pointer.	The default is
	       "xterm."

       popOnBell (class	PopOnBell)
	       Specifies  whether the window would be raised when Control-G is
	       received.  The default is "false."

	       If the window is	iconified, this	has no effect.	 However,  the
	       zIconBeep  resource  provides you with the ability to see which
	       iconified windows have sounded a	bell.

       preeditType (class XtCPreeditType)
	       Tells xterm which types of preedit  (preconversion)  string  to
	       display.	 The default is	"OverTheSpot,Root".

       printAttributes (class PrintAttributes)
	       Specifies  whether  to  print graphic attributes	along with the
	       text.  A	real DEC VTxxx	terminal  will	print  the  underline,
	       highlighting  codes  but	 your printer may not handle these.  A
	       "0" disables the	attributes.  A "1" prints the  normal  set  of
	       attributes  (bold, underline, inverse and blink)	as VT100-style
	       control sequences.  A "2" prints	ANSI color attributes as well.
	       The default is "1."

       printerAutoClose	(class PrinterAutoClose)
	       If  "true",  xterm will close the printer (a pipe) when the ap-
	       plication switches the printer offline with a Media  Copy  com-
	       mand.  The default is "false."

       printerCommand (class PrinterCommand)
	       Specifies  a shell command to which xterm will open a pipe when
	       the first MC (Media Copy) command is initiated.	The default is
	       a  blank	 string.   If  the  resource value is given as a blank
	       string, the printer is disabled.

       printerControlMode (class PrinterControlMode)
	       Specifies the printer control mode.  A  "1"  selects  autoprint
	       mode,  which  causes xterm to print a line from the screen when
	       you move	the cursor off that line with a	line feed,  form  feed
	       or  vertical  tab  character, or	an autowrap occurs.  Autoprint
	       mode is overridden by printer controller	mode  (a  "2"),	 which
	       causes  all  of	the output to be directed to the printer.  The
	       default is "0."

       printerExtent (class PrinterExtent)
	       Controls	whether	a print	page function will  print  the	entire
	       page  (true), or	only the the portion within the	scrolling mar-
	       gins (false).  The default is "false."

       printerFormFeed (class PrinterFormFeed)
	       Controls	whether	a form feed is sent to the printer at the  end
	       of a print page function.  The default is "false."

       printerNewLine (class PrinterNewLine)
	       Controls	whether	a newline is sent to the printer at the	end of
	       a print page function.  The default is "true."

       quietGrab (class	QuietGrab)
	       Controls	whether	the cursor is repainted	 when  NotifyGrab  and
	       NotifyUngrab  event  types are received during change of	focus.
	       The default is "false."

       renderFont (class RenderFont)
	       If xterm	is built with the Xft library, this  controls  whether
	       the faceName resource is	used.  The default is "true."

       resizeGravity (class ResizeGravity)
	       Affects the behavior when the window is resized to be taller or
	       shorter.	 NorthWest specifies that the top line of text on  the
	       screen  stay  fixed.   If the window is made shorter, lines are
	       dropped from the	bottom;	if the window is  made	taller,	 blank
	       lines are added at the bottom.  This is compatible with the be-
	       havior in R4.  SouthWest	(the default) specifies	that the  bot-
	       tom  line  of  text on the screen stay fixed.  If the window is
	       made taller, additional saved lines will	be scrolled down  onto
	       the  screen;  if	 the  window  is  made	shorter, lines will be
	       scrolled	off the	top of the screen, and	the  top  saved	 lines
	       will be dropped.

       retryInputMethod	(class XtCRetryInputMethod)
	       Tells  xterm  how many times to retry, in case the input-method
	       server is not responding.  This is a different issue  than  un-
	       supported preedit type, etc.  You may encounter retries if your
	       X configuration (and its	libraries) are missing	pieces.	  Set-
	       ting this resource to zero ``0''	will cancel the	retrying.  The
	       default is ``3''.

       reverseVideo (class ReverseVideo)
	       Specifies whether or not	reverse	 video	should	be  simulated.
	       The default is "false."

       reverseWrap (class ReverseWrap)
	       Specifies  whether or not reverse-wraparound should be enabled.
	       This corresponds	to xterm's private mode	45.   The  default  is
	       "false."

       rightScrollBar (class RightScrollBar)
	       Specifies  whether  or not the scrollbar	should be displayed on
	       the right rather	than the left.	The default is "false."

       saveLines (class	SaveLines)
	       Specifies the number of lines to	save beyond  the  top  of  the
	       screen when a scrollbar is turned on.  The default is 64.

       scrollBar (class	ScrollBar)
	       Specifies  whether  or  not  the	scrollbar should be displayed.
	       The default is "false."

       scrollBarBorder (class ScrollBarBorder)
	       Specifies the width of the scrollbar border.  Note that this is
	       drawn to	overlap	the border of the xterm	window.	 Modifying the
	       scrollbar's border affects only the line	between	the VT100 wid-
	       get and the scrollbar.  The default value is 1.

       scrollKey (class	ScrollCond)
	       Specifies  whether  or  not pressing a key should automatically
	       cause the scrollbar to go to the	bottom of  the	scrolling  re-
	       gion.   This corresponds	to xterm's private mode	1011.  The de-
	       fault is	"false."

       scrollLines (class ScrollLines)
	       Specifies the number of lines that the scroll-back and  scroll-
	       forw actions should use as a default.  The default value	is 1.

       scrollTtyOutput (class ScrollCond)
	       Specifies whether or not	output to the terminal should automat-
	       ically cause the	scrollbar to go	to the bottom of the scrolling
	       region.	The default is "true."

       selectToClipboard (class	SelectToClipboard)
	       Tells  xterm whether to use the PRIMARY or CLIPBOARD for	SELECT
	       tokens in the selection mechanism.  The set-select  action  can
	       change this at runtime, allowing	the user to work with programs
	       that handle only	one  of	 these	mechanisms.   The  default  is
	       "false",	which tells it to use PRIMARY.

       shiftFonts (class ShiftFonts)
	       Specifies  whether  to  enable the actions larger-vt-font() and
	       smaller-vt-font(), which	are  normally  bound  to  the  shifted
	       KP_Add and KP_Subtract.	The default is "true."

       showBlinkAsBold (class ShowBlinkAsBold)
	       Tells  xterm  whether  to display text with blink-attribute the
	       same as bold.  If xterm has  not	 been  configured  to  support
	       blinking	 text,	the  default  is "true.", which	corresponds to
	       older versions of xterm,	otherwise the default is "false."

       showMissingGlyphs (class	ShowMissingGlyphs)
	       Tells xterm whether to display a	box outlining places  where  a
	       character  has been used	that the font does not represent.  The
	       default is "false."

       signalInhibit (class SignalInhibit)
	       Specifies whether or not	the entries in the "Main Options" menu
	       for sending signals to xterm should be disallowed.  The default
	       is "false."

       tekGeometry (class Geometry)
	       Specifies the preferred size and	position of the	Tektronix win-
	       dow.  There is no default for this resource.

       tekInhibit (class TekInhibit)
	       Specifies whether or not	the escape sequence to enter Tektronix
	       mode should be ignored.	The default is "false."

       tekSmall	(class TekSmall)
	       Specifies whether or not	the Tektronix mode window should start
	       in its smallest size if no explicit geometry is given.  This is
	       useful when running xterm on displays with small	screens.   The
	       default is "false."

       tekStartup (class TekStartup)
	       Specifies  whether  or  not  xterm should start up in Tektronix
	       mode.  The default is "false."

       tiXtraScroll (class TiXtraScroll)
	       Specifies whether xterm should scroll to	a new page  when  pro-
	       cessing	the ti termcap entry, i.e., the	private	modes 47, 1047
	       or 1049.	 This is only in effect	if titeInhibit is "true",  be-
	       cause  the intent of this option	is to provide a	picture	of the
	       full-screen application's display  on  the  scrollback  without
	       wiping  out the text that would be shown	before the application
	       was initialized.	 The default for this resource is "false."

       titeInhibit (class TiteInhibit)
	       Specifies whether or not	xterm should remove ti and te  termcap
	       entries (used to	switch between alternate screens on startup of
	       many screen-oriented programs) from  the	 TERMCAP  string.   If
	       set,  xterm  also  ignores the escape sequence to switch	to the
	       alternate screen.  Xterm	supports terminfo in a different  way,
	       supporting  composite  control sequences	(also known as private
	       modes) 1047, 1048 and 1049 which	have the same  effect  as  the
	       original	47 control sequence.  The default for this resource is
	       "false."

       titleModes (class TitleModes)
	       Tells xterm whether to accept or	return window- and icon-labels
	       in ISO-8859-1 (the default) or UTF-8.  Either can be encoded in
	       hexadecimal.  The default for this resource is "0."

	       Each bit	(bit "0" is 1, bit "1" is 2, etc) corresponds  to  one
	       of the parameters set by	the title modes	control	sequence:

	       0    Set	window/icon labels using hexadecimal

	       1    Query window/icon labels using hexadecimal

	       2    Set	 window/icon  labels using UTF-8 (overrides utf8Titles
		    resource).

	       3    Query window/icon labels using UTF-8

       translations (class Translations)
	       Specifies the key and button bindings  for  menus,  selections,
	       "programmed  strings,"  etc.   The translations resource, which
	       provides	much of	xterm's	configurability, is a feature of the X
	       Toolkit Intrinsics library (Xt).	 See the ACTIONS section.

       trimSelection (class TrimSelection)
	       If  you	set  highlightSelection, you can see the text which is
	       selected, including any trailing	spaces.	 Clearing  the	screen
	       (or  a  line)  resets it	to a state containing no spaces.  Some
	       lines may contain trailing spaces when  an  application	writes
	       them  to	 the screen.  However, you may not wish	to paste lines
	       with trailing spaces.  If this resource	is  true,  xterm  will
	       trim  trailing spaces from text which is	selected.  It does not
	       affect spaces which result in a wrapped line, nor will it  trim
	       the  trailing  newline  from  your  selection.	The default is
	       "false."

       underLine (class	UnderLine)
	       This specifies whether or not text with the underline attribute
	       should be underlined.  It may be	desirable to disable underlin-
	       ing when	color is being used for	the underline attribute.   The
	       default is "true."

       useClipping (class UseClipping)
	       Tell  xterm whether to use clipping to keep from	producing dots
	       outside the text	drawing	area.  Originally used to work	around
	       for overstriking	effects, this is also needed to	work with some
	       incorrectly-sized fonts.	 The default is	"true."

       utf8 (class Utf8)
	       This specifies whether xterm will run in	UTF-8  mode.   If  you
	       set  this resource, xterm also sets the wideChars resource as a
	       side-effect.  The resource is an	 integer,  expected  to	 range
	       from 0 to 3:

	       0  UTF-8	 mode  is  initially off.  The command-line option +u8
		  sets the resource to this value.  Escape sequences for turn-
		  ing UTF-8 mode on/off	are allowed.

	       1  UTF-8	 mode  is  initially on.  Escape sequences for turning
		  UTF-8	mode on/off are	allowed.

	       2  The command-line option -u8 sets the resource	to this	value.
		  Escape sequences for turning UTF-8 mode on/off are ignored.

	       3  This	is  the	 default value of the resource.	 It is changed
		  during initialization	depending on whether  the  locale  re-
		  source  was set, to 0	or 2.  See the locale resource for ad-
		  ditional discussion of non-UTF-8 locales.

	       If you want to set the value of utf8,  it  should  be  in  this
	       range.  Other nonzero values are	treated	the same as "1", i.e.,
	       UTF-8 mode is initially on, and escape  sequences  for  turning
	       UTF-8 mode on/off are allowed.

       utf8Fonts (class	Utf8Fonts)
	       See the discussion of the locale	resource.

       utf8Latin1 (class Utf8Latin1)
	       If true,	allow an ISO-8859-1 normal font	to be combined with an
	       ISO-10646 font if the latter is given via the -fw option	or its
	       corresponding resource value.  The default is "false."

       utf8SelectTypes (class Utf8SelectTypes)
	       Override	  xterm's  default  selection  target  list  (see  SE-
	       LECT/PASTE) for selections in wide-character (UTF-8) mode.  The
	       default is an empty string, which does not override anything.

       utf8Title (class	Utf8Title)
	       Applications  can  set  xterm's	title by writing a control se-
	       quence.	Normally this control sequence follows the VT220  con-
	       vention,	 which encodes the string in ISO-8859-1	and allows for
	       an 8-bit	string terminator.  If xterm is	started	in a UTF-8 lo-
	       cale, it	translates the ISO-8859-1 string to UTF-8 to work with
	       the X libraries which assume the	string is UTF-8.

	       However,	some users may wish to write a title string encoded in
	       UTF-8.	Set this resource to "true" to allow UTF-8 encoded ti-
	       tle strings.  That cancels the translation to  UTF-8,  allowing
	       UTF-8 strings to	be displayed as	is.

	       This  feature is	available as a menu entry, since it is related
	       to the particular applications you are  running	within	xterm.
	       You can also use	a control sequence (see	the discussion of "Ti-
	       tle Modes" in the control sequences document), to set an	equiv-
	       alent flag.  The	titleModes resource sets the same value, which
	       overrides this resource.

	       The default is "false."

       veryBoldColors (class VeryBoldColors)
	       Specifies whether to combine video attributes with colors spec-
	       ified  by  colorBD, colorBL, colorRV and	colorUL.  The resource
	       value is	the sum	of values for each attribute:
		 1 for reverse,
		 2 for underline,
		 4 for bold and
		 8 for blink.

	       The default is "0."

       visualBell (class VisualBell)
	       Specifies whether or not	a visible bell (i.e., flashing)	should
	       be  used	instead	of an audible bell when	Control-G is received.
	       The default is "false."

       visualBellDelay (class VisualBellDelay)
	       Number of milliseconds to delay when displaying a visual	 bell.
	       Default	is  100.  If set to zero, no visual bell is displayed.
	       This is useful for very slow displays, e.g., an LCD display  on
	       a laptop.

       vt100Graphics (class VT100Graphics)
	       This specifies whether xterm will interpret VT100 graphic char-
	       acter escape sequences while in UTF-8  mode.   The  default  is
	       "true", to provide support for various legacy applications.

       wideBoldFont (class WideBoldFont)
	       This  option  specifies the font	to be used for displaying bold
	       wide text.  By default, it will attempt to use a	font twice  as
	       wide  as	 the  font that	will be	used to	draw bold text.	 If no
	       double-width font is found, it will  improvise,	by  stretching
	       the bold	font.

       wideChars (class	WideChars)
	       Specifies  if  xterm  should  respond to	control	sequences that
	       process 16-bit characters.  The default is "false."

       wideFont	(class WideFont)
	       This option specifies the font to be used for  displaying  wide
	       text.   By default, it will attempt to use a font twice as wide
	       as the font that	will be	used to	draw normal text.  If no  dou-
	       ble-width  font	is found, it will improvise, by	stretching the
	       normal font.

       ximFont (class XimFont)
	       This option specifies the font to be used  for  displaying  the
	       preedit string in the "OverTheSpot" input method.

	       In  "OverTheSpot"  preedit  type,  the  preedit (preconversion)
	       string is displayed at the position of the cursor.  It  is  the
	       XIM server's responsibility to display the preedit string.  The
	       XIM client must inform the XIM server of	the  cursor  position.
	       For  best  results, the preedit string must be displayed	with a
	       proper font.  Therefore,	xterm informs the XIM  server  of  the
	       proper font.  The font is be supplied by	a "fontset", whose de-
	       fault value is "*".  This matches every font, the X library au-
	       tomatically  chooses  fonts  with proper	charsets.  The ximFont
	       resource	is provided to override	this default font setting.

   Tek4014 Widget Resources
       The following resources are specified as	part  of  the  tek4014	widget
       (class	Tek4014).    These   are   specified   by   patterns  such  as
       "XTerm.tek4014.NAME":

       font2 (class Font)
	       Specifies font number 2 to use in the Tektronix window.

       font3 (class Font)
	       Specifies font number 3 to use in the Tektronix window.

       fontLarge (class	Font)
	       Specifies the large font	to use in the Tektronix	window.

       fontSmall (class	Font)
	       Specifies the small font	to use in the Tektronix	window.

       ginTerminator (class GinTerminator)
	       Specifies what character(s) should follow a GIN report or  sta-
	       tus  report.  The possibilities are "none," which sends no ter-
	       minating	characters, "CRonly," which sends  CR,	and  "CR&EOT,"
	       which sends both	CR and EOT.  The default is "none."

       height (class Height)
	       Specifies the height of the Tektronix window in pixels.

   Scrollbar Resources
       The following resources	are  useful  when  specified  for  the	Athena
       Scrollbar widget:

       thickness (class	Thickness)
	       Specifies the width in pixels of	the scrollbar.

       background (class Background)
	       Specifies the color to use for the background of	the scrollbar.

       foreground (class Foreground)
	       Specifies the color to use for the foreground of	the scrollbar.
	       The "thumb" of the scrollbar is a simple	 checkerboard  pattern
	       alternating pixels for foreground and background	color.

POINTER	USAGE
       Once  the  VT102	window is created, xterm allows	you to select text and
       copy it within the same or other	windows.

   SELECTION
       The selection functions are invoked when	the pointer buttons  are  used
       with  no	 modifiers,  and when they are used with the "shift" key.  The
       assignment of the functions described below to keys and buttons may  be
       changed through the resource database; see ACTIONS below.

       Pointer	button	one  (usually  left) is	used to	save text into the cut
       buffer.	Move the cursor	to beginning of	the text, and  then  hold  the
       button  down  while  moving the cursor to the end of the	region and re-
       leasing the button.  The	selected text is highlighted and is  saved  in
       the global cut buffer and made the PRIMARY selection when the button is
       released.  Normally (but	see the	discussion of on2Clicks, etc):

	      -	 Double-clicking selects by words.

	      -	 Triple-clicking selects by lines.

	      -	 Quadruple-clicking goes back to characters, etc.

       Multiple-click is determined by the time	from button up to button down,
       so  you	can  change  the  selection unit in the	middle of a selection.
       Logical words and lines selected	by double- or triple-clicking may wrap
       across  more than one screen line if lines were wrapped by xterm	itself
       rather than by the application running in the window.  If the  key/but-
       ton  bindings  specify  that  an	 X selection is	to be made, xterm will
       leave the selected text highlighted for as long as it is	the  selection
       owner.

       Pointer	button two (usually middle) "types" (pastes) the text from the
       PRIMARY selection, if any, otherwise from the cut buffer, inserting  it
       as keyboard input.

       Pointer	button	three  (usually	 right)	extends	the current selection.
       (Without	loss of	generality, you	can swap "right" and "left" everywhere
       in  the	rest of	this paragraph.)  If pressed while closer to the right
       edge of the selection than the left,  it	 extends/contracts  the	 right
       edge  of	 the  selection.   If you contract the selection past the left
       edge of the selection, xterm assumes you	really meant  the  left	 edge,
       restores	 the  original selection, then extends/contracts the left edge
       of the selection.  Extension starts in the selection unit mode that the
       last selection or extension was performed in; you can multiple-click to
       cycle through them.

       By cutting and pasting pieces of	text without trailing new  lines,  you
       can  take text from several places in different windows and form	a com-
       mand to the shell, for example, or take output from a program  and  in-
       sert  it	 into  your  favorite  editor.	Since cut buffers are globally
       shared among different applications, you	may regard each	 as  a	"file"
       whose contents you know.	 The terminal emulator and other text programs
       should be treating it as	if it were a text file,	i.e., the text is  de-
       limited by new lines.

   SCROLLING
       The  scroll  region  displays the position and amount of	text currently
       showing in the window (highlighted) relative to the amount of text  ac-
       tually  saved.	As more	text is	saved (up to the maximum), the size of
       the highlighted area decreases.

       Clicking	button one with	the pointer in the scroll region moves the ad-
       jacent line to the top of the display window.

       Clicking	 button	three moves the	top line of the	display	window down to
       the pointer position.

       Clicking	button two moves the display to	a position in the  saved  text
       that corresponds	to the pointer's position in the scrollbar.

   TEKTRONIX POINTER
       Unlike  the VT102 window, the Tektronix window does not allow the copy-
       ing of text.  It	does allow Tektronix GIN mode, and in  this  mode  the
       cursor  will  change  from  an arrow to a cross.	 Pressing any key will
       send that key and the current coordinate	of the cross cursor.  Pressing
       button  one,  two,  or three will return	the letters "l", "m", and "r",
       respectively.  If the "shift" key is pressed when a pointer  button  is
       pressed,	the corresponding upper	case letter is sent.  To distinguish a
       pointer button from a key, the high bit of the character	 is  set  (but
       this  is	 bit is	normally stripped unless the terminal mode is RAW; see
       tty(4) for details).

SELECT/PASTE
       X clients provide select	and paste support by  responding  to  requests
       conveyed	by the server.

   PRIMARY
       When  configured	 to use	the primary selection, (the default) xterm can
       provide the selection data in ways which	help to	retain	character  en-
       coding information as it	is pasted.

       A  user "selects" text on xterm,	which highlights the selected text.  A
       subsequent "paste" to another client forwards a request to  the	client
       owning  the  selection.	 If xterm owns the primary selection, it makes
       the data	available in the form of one or	more "selection	targets".   If
       it  does	 not own the primary selection,	e.g., if it has	released it or
       another client has asserted ownership, it relies	on cut-buffers to pass
       the  data.   But	 cut-buffers handle only ISO-8859-1 data (officially -
       some clients ignore the rules).

   CLIPBOARD
       When configured to use the clipboard (see resource  selectToClipboard),
       the  problem  with  persistence	of  ownership is bypassed.  Otherwise,
       there is	no difference regarding	the data which can be passed  via  se-
       lection.

   SELECTION TARGETS
       The different types of data which are passed depend on what the receiv-
       ing client asks for.  These are termed selection	targets.

       When asking for the selection data, xterm tries the following types  in
       this order:

	      UTF8_STRING
		   This	 is  an	XFree86	extension, which denotes that the data
		   is encoded in UTF-8.	 When xterm is built with wide-charac-
		   ter support,	it both	accepts	and provides this type.

	      TEXT the	text is	in the encoding	which corresponds to your cur-
		   rent	locale.

	      COMPOUND_TEXT
		   this	is a format for	multiple character set data,  such  as
		   multi-lingual  text.	  It can store UTF-8 data as a special
		   case.

	      STRING
		   This	is Latin 1 (ISO-8859-1)	data.

       The middle two (TEXT and	COMPOUND_TEXT) are added if xterm  is  config-
       ured with the i18nSelections resource set to "true".

       UTF8_STRING  is	preferred  (therefore  first  in the list) since xterm
       stores text as Unicode data when	running	in wide-character mode,	and no
       translation  is	needed.	 On the	other hand, TEXT and COMPOUND_TEXT may
       require translation.  If	the translation	is incomplete, they  will  in-
       sert  X's  "defaultString" whose	value cannot be	set, and may simply be
       empty.  Xterm's defaultString resource specifies	the string to use  for
       incomplete translations of the UTF8_STRING.

       You can alter the types which xterm tries using the eightBitSelectTypes
       or utf8SelectTypes resources.  For instance, you	might have  some  spe-
       cific  locale  setting which does not use UTF-8 encoding.  The resource
       value is	a comma-separated list of the selection	targets, which consist
       of  the	names  shown.  You can use the special name I18N to denote the
       optional	inclusion of TEXT and COMPOUND_TEXT.  The  names  are  matched
       ignoring	 case,	and  can  be abbreviated.  The default list can	be ex-
       pressed in several ways,	e.g.,

	      UTF8_STRING,I18N,STRING
	      utf8,i18n,string
	      u,i,s

MENUS
       Xterm has four menus, named mainMenu, vtMenu,  fontMenu,	 and  tekMenu.
       Each  menu  pops	 up  under  the	correct	combinations of	key and	button
       presses.	 Each menu is divided into sections, separated by a horizontal
       line.   Some  menu  entries correspond to modes that can	be altered.  A
       check mark appears next to a mode that is currently active.   Selecting
       one of these modes toggles its state.  Other menu entries are commands;
       selecting one of	these performs the indicated function.

       All of the menu entries correspond to X actions.	 In  the  list	below,
       the menu	label is shown followed	by the action's	name in	parenthesis.

   Main	Options
       The  xterm  mainMenu  pops up when the "control"	key and	pointer	button
       one are pressed in a window.  This menu contains	items  that  apply  to
       both the	VT102 and Tektronix windows.  There are	several	sections:

       Commands	for managing X events:

	      Toolbar
		     Clicking on the "Toolbar" menu entry hides	the toolbar if
		     it	is visible, and	shows it if it is not.

	      Secure Keyboard (securekbd)
		     The Secure	Keyboard mode is helpful when typing in	 pass-
		     words or other sensitive data in an unsecure environment;
		     see SECURITY below	(but read the limitations carefully).

	      Allow SendEvents (allowsends)
		     Specifies whether or not synthetic	key and	button	events
		     generated	using  the X protocol SendEvent	request	should
		     be	interpreted or discarded.  This	corresponds to the al-
		     lowSendEvents resource.

	      Redraw Window (redraw)
		     Forces  the X display to repaint; useful in some environ-
		     ments.

       Commands	for capturing output:

	      Log to File (logging)
		     Captures text sent	to the screen in a logfile, as in  the
		     -l	logging	option.

	      Print Window (print)
		     Sends the text of the current window to the program given
		     in	the printerCommand resource.

	      Redirect to Printer (print-redir)
		     This sets the printerControlMode to 0 or 2.  You can  use
		     this to turn the printer on as if an application had sent
		     the appropriate control sequence.	It is also useful  for
		     switching	the  printer off if an application turns it on
		     without resetting the print control mode.

       Modes for setting keyboard style:

	      8-Bit Controls (8-bit-control)
		     Enabled for VT220 emulation, this controls	whether	 xterm
		     will send 8-bit control sequences rather than using 7-bit
		     (ASCII) controls, e.g.,  sending  a  byte	in  the	 range
		     128-159  rather  than  the	escape character followed by a
		     second byte.  Xterm  always  interprets  both  8-bit  and
		     7-bit  control  sequences (see the	document Xterm Control
		     Sequences).  This corresponds to the eightBitControl  re-
		     source.

	      Backarrow	Key (BS/DEL) (backarrow	key)
		     Modifies  the  behavior  of  the backarrow	key, making it
		     transmit either a backspace (8) or	delete	(127)  charac-
		     ter.  This	corresponds to the backarrowKey	resource.

	      Alt/NumLock Modifiers (num-lock)
		     Controls the treatment of Alt- and	NumLock-key modifiers.
		     This corresponds to the numLock resource.

	      Meta Sends Escape	(meta-esc)
		     Controls whether Meta keys	are converted into a two-char-
		     acter sequence with the character itself preceded by ESC.
		     This corresponds to the metaSendsEscape resource.

	      Delete is	DEL (delete-is-del)
		     Controls whether the Delete key  on  the  editing	keypad
		     should  send  DEL	(127) or the VT220-style Remove	escape
		     sequence.	This corresponds to the	deleteIsDEL resource.

	      Old Function-Keys	(oldFunctionKeys)

	      HP Function-Keys (hpFunctionKeys)

	      SCO Function-Keys	(scoFunctionKeys)

	      Sun Function-Keys	(sunFunctionKeys)

	      VT220 Keyboard (sunKeyboard)
		     These act as a radio-button, selecting one	style for  the
		     keyboard  layout.	 It  corresponds  to more than one re-
		     source setting:  sunKeyboard,  sunFunctionKeys,  scoFunc-
		     tionKeys and hpFunctionKeys ."

       Commands	for process signalling:

	      Send STOP	Signal (suspend)

	      Send CONT	Signal (continue)

	      Send INT Signal (interrupt)

	      Send HUP Signal (hangup)

	      Send TERM	Signal (terminate)

	      Send KILL	Signal (kill)
		     These  send the SIGTSTP, SIGCONT, SIGINT, SIGHUP, SIGTERM
		     and SIGKILL signals respectively, to the process group of
		     the process running under xterm (usually the shell).  The
		     SIGCONT function is especially useful if the user has ac-
		     cidentally	typed CTRL-Z, suspending the process.

	      Quit (quit)
		     Stop  processing X	events except to support the -hold op-
		     tion, and then send a SIGHUP signal to  the  the  process
		     group  of	the  process  running under xterm (usually the
		     shell).

   VT Options
       The vtMenu sets various modes in	the VT102 emulation, and is popped  up
       when  the "control" key and pointer button two are pressed in the VT102
       window.

       VT102/VT220 Modes:

	      Enable Scrollbar (scrollbar)
		     Enable (or	disable) the scrollbar.	 This  corresponds  to
		     the -sb option and	the scrollBar resource.

	      Enable Jump Scroll (jumpscroll)
		     Enable  (or disable) jump scrolling.  This	corresponds to
		     the -j option and the jumpScroll resource.

	      Enable Reverse Video (reversevideo)
		     Enable (or	disable) reverse-video.	 This  corresponds  to
		     the -rv option and	the reverseVideo resource.

	      Enable Auto Wraparound (autowrap)
		     Enable (or	disable) auto-wraparound.  This	corresponds to
		     the -aw option and	the autoWrap resource.

	      Enable Reverse Wraparound	(reversewrap)
		     Enable (or	disable) reverse wraparound.  This corresponds
		     to	the -rw	option and the reverseWrap resource.

	      Enable Auto Linefeed (autolinefeed)
		     Enable (or	disable) auto-linefeed.	 This is the VT102 NEL
		     function, which causes the	emulator to  emit  a  linefeed
		     after  each  carriage  return.  There is no corresponding
		     command-line option or resource setting.

	      Enable Application Cursor	Keys (appcursor)
		     Enable (or	disable) application cursor keys.  This	corre-
		     sponds  to	 the  appcursorDefault	resource.  There is no
		     corresponding command-line	option.

	      Enable Application Keypad	(appkeypad)
		     Enable (or	disable) application keypad keys.  This	corre-
		     sponds  to	 the  appkeypadDefault	resource.  There is no
		     corresponding command-line	option.

	      Scroll to	Bottom on Key Press (scrollkey)
		     Enable (or	 disable)  scrolling  to  the  bottom  of  the
		     scrolling	region on a keypress.  This corresponds	to the
		     -sk option	and the	scrollKey resource.

	      Scroll to	Bottom on Tty Output (scrollttyoutput)
		     Enable (or	 disable)  scrolling  to  the  bottom  of  the
		     scrolling	region on output to the	terminal.  This	corre-
		     sponds to the -si	option	and  the  scrollTtyOutput  re-
		     source.

	      Allow 80/132 Column Switching (allow132)
		     Enable (or	disable) switching between 80 and 132 columns.
		     This corresponds to the -132  option  and	the  c132  re-
		     source.

	      Keep Selection (keepSelection)
		     Tell  xterm whether to disown the selection when it stops
		     highlighting it, e.g., when an application	 modifies  the
		     display  so  that it no longer matches the	text which has
		     been highlighted.	As long	as xterm continues to own  the
		     selection,	it can provide the corresponding text to other
		     clients via cut/paste.  This corresponds to  the  keepSe-
		     lection resource.	There is no corresponding command-line
		     option.

	      Select to	Clipboard (selectToClipboard)
		     Tell xterm	whether	to use the PRIMARY  or	CLIPBOARD  for
		     SELECT  tokens  in	 the  translations resource which maps
		     keyboard and mouse	actions	to select/paste	actions.  This
		     corresponds  to the selectToClipboard resource.  There is
		     no	corresponding command-line option.

	      Enable Visual Bell (visualbell)
		     Enable (or	disable) visible bell (i.e., flashing) instead
		     of	 an  audible bell.  This corresponds to	the -vb	option
		     and the visualBell	resource.

	      Enable Bell Urgency (bellIsUrgent)
		     Enable (or	disable) Urgency window	manager	hint when Con-
		     trol-G is received.  This corresponds to the bellIsUrgent
		     resource.

	      Enable Pop on Bell (poponbell)
		     Enable (or	disable) raising of the	window when  Control-G
		     is	received.  This	corresponds to the -pop	option and the
		     popOnBell resource.

	      Enable Blinking Cursor (cursorblink)
		     Enable (or	disable) the  blinking-cursor  feature.	  This
		     corresponds  to  the  -bc	option and the cursorBlink re-
		     source.  There is also an escape sequence (see the	 docu-
		     ment  Xterm  Control  Sequences).	The menu entry and the
		     escape sequence states are	XOR'd: if  both	 are  enabled,
		     the  cursor  will	not blink, if only one is enabled, the
		     cursor will blink.

	      Enable Alternate Screen Switching	(titeInhibit)
		     Enable (or	disable) switching between the normal and  al-
		     ternate screens.  This corresponds	to the titeInhibit re-
		     source.  There is no corresponding	command-line option.

	      Enable Active Icon (activeicon)
		     Enable (or	disable) the active-icon feature.  This	corre-
		     sponds to the -ai option and the activeIcon resource.

       VT102/VT220 Commands:

	      Do Soft Reset (softreset)
		     Reset  scroll  regions.  This can be convenient when some
		     program has left the scroll regions set incorrectly  (of-
		     ten  a  problem  when using VMS or	TOPS-20).  This	corre-
		     sponds to the VT220 DECSTR	control	sequence.

	      Do Full Reset (hardreset)
		     The full reset entry will clear the screen, reset tabs to
		     every  eight  columns, and	reset the terminal modes (such
		     as	wrap and smooth	scroll)	to their initial  states  just
		     after  xterm has finished processing the command line op-
		     tions.  This corresponds to the  VT102  RIS  control  se-
		     quence,  with  a  few  obvious differences.  For example,
		     your session is not disconnected as a  real  VT102	 would
		     do.

	      Reset and	Clear Saved Lines (clearsavedlines)
		     Perform a full reset, and also clear the saved lines.

       Commands	for setting the	current	screen:

	      Show Tek Window (tekshow)
		     When enabled, pops	the Tektronix 4014 window up (makes it
		     visible).	When disabled, hides the Tektronix  4014  win-
		     dow.

	      Switch to	Tek Mode (tekmode)
		     When  enabled, pops the Tektronix 4014 window up if it is
		     not already visible, and switches	the  input  stream  to
		     that  window.   When  disabled,  hides the	Tektronix 4014
		     window and	switches input back to the VTxxx window.

	      Hide VT Window (vthide)
		     When enabled, hides the VTxxx window, shows the Tektronix
		     4014  window  if  it was not already visible and switches
		     the input stream to that window.	When  disabled,	 shows
		     the  VTxxx	 window, and switches the input	stream to that
		     window.

	      Show Alternate Screen (altscreen)
		     When enabled, shows the alternate screen.	When disabled,
		     shows the normal screen.  Note that the normal screen may
		     have saved	lines; the alternate screen does not.

   VT Fonts
       The fontMenu pops up when when the "control"  key  and  pointer	button
       three are pressed in a window.  It sets the font	used in	the VT102 win-
       dow, or modifies	the way	the font is specified or displayed.  There are
       several sections.

       The  first section allows you to	select the font	from a set of alterna-
       tives:

	      Default (fontdefault)
		     Set the font to the default,  i.e.,  that	given  by  the
		     *VT100.font resource.

	      Unreadable (font1)
		     Set the font to that given	by the *VT100.font1 resource.

	      Tiny (font2)
		     Set the font to that given	by the *VT100.font2 resource.

	      Small (font3)
		     Set the font to that given	by the *VT100.font3 resource.

	      Medium (font4)
		     Set the font to that given	by the *VT100.font4 resource.

	      Large (font5)
		     Set the font to that given	by the *VT100.font5 resource.

	      Huge (font6)
		     Set the font to that given	by the *VT100.font6 resource.

	      Escape Sequence
		     This allows you to	set the	font last specified by the Set
		     Font escape sequence (see the document Xterm Control  Se-
		     quences).

	      Selection	(fontsel)
		     This allows you to	set the	font specified the current se-
		     lection as	a font	name  (if  the	PRIMARY	 selection  is
		     owned).

       The second section allows you to	modify the way it is displayed:

	      Line-Drawing Characters (font-linedrawing)
		     When  set,	tells xterm to draw its	own line-drawing char-
		     acters.  Otherwise	 it  relies  on	 the  font  containing
		     these.  Compare to	the forceBoxChars resource.

	      Packed Font (font-packed)
		     When set, tells xterm to use the minimum glyph-width from
		     a font when displaying characters.	 Use the maximum width
		     (unchecked)  to help display proportional fonts.  Compare
		     to	the forcePackedFont resource.

	      Doublesized Characters (font-doublesize)
		     When set, xterm may ask the font server to	produce	scaled
		     versions  of the normal font, for VT102 double-size char-
		     acters.

       The third section allows	you to modify the way it is specified:

	      TrueType Fonts (render-font)
		     If	the renderFont and corresponding resources  were  set,
		     this is a further control whether xterm will actually use
		     the Xft library calls to obtain a font.

	      UTF-8 (utf8-mode)
		     This controls whether xterm uses UTF-8  encoding  of  in-
		     put/output.  It is	useful for temporarily switching xterm
		     to	display	text from an application which does not	follow
		     the locale	settings.

       The  fourth  section allows you to enable or disable special operations
       which can be controlled by writing escape sequences  to	the  terminal.
       These are disabled if the SendEvents feature is enabled:

	      Allow Color Ops (allow-font-ops)
		     This  corresponds	to the allowColorOps resource.	Enable
		     or	disable	control	sequences that set/query the colors.

	      Allow Font Ops (allow-font-ops)
		     This corresponds to the allowFontOps resource.  Enable or
		     disable control sequences that set/query the font.

	      Allow Tcap Ops (allow-tcap-ops)
		     Enable or disable control sequences that query the	termi-
		     nal's notion of its function-key strings, as  termcap  or
		     terminfo  capabilities.   This corresponds	to the allowT-
		     capOps resource.

	      Allow Title Ops (allow-title-ops)
		     Enable or disable control sequences that modify the  win-
		     dow title or icon name.  This corresponds to the allowTi-
		     tleOps resource.

	      Allow Window Ops (allow-window-ops)
		     Enable or disable extended	window control	sequences  (as
		     used  in dtterm).	This corresponds to the	allowWindowOps
		     resource.

   TEK Options
       The tekMenu sets	various	modes  in  the	Tektronix  emulation,  and  is
       popped  up when the "control" key and pointer button two	are pressed in
       the Tektronix window.  The current font size is checked	in  the	 modes
       section of the menu.

	      Large Characters (tektextlarge)

	      #2 Size Characters (tektext2)

	      #3 Size Characters (tektext3)

	      Small Characters (tektextsmall)

       Commands:

	      PAGE (tekpage)
		     Clear the Tektronix window.

	      RESET (tekreset)

	      COPY (tekcopy)

       Windows:

	      Show VT Window (vtshow)

	      Switch to	VT Mode	(vtmode)

	      Hide Tek Window (tekhide)

SECURITY
       X  environments	differ in their	security consciousness.	 Most servers,
       run under xdm, are capable of  using  a	"magic	cookie"	 authorization
       scheme that can provide a reasonable level of security for many people.
       If your server is only using a host-based mechanism to  control	access
       to  the server (see xhost(1)), then if you enable access	for a host and
       other users are also permitted to run clients on	that same host,	it  is
       possible	 that someone can run an application which uses	the basic ser-
       vices of	the X protocol to snoop	on your	activities,  potentially  cap-
       turing  a  transcript  of  everything  you  type	 at the	keyboard.  Any
       process which has access	to your	X display can manipulate  it  in  ways
       that you	might not anticipate, even redirecting your keyboard to	itself
       and sending events to your application's	windows.  This	is  true  even
       with  the  "magic  cookie" authorization	scheme.	 While the allowSendE-
       vents provides some protection  against	rogue  applications  tampering
       with your programs, guarding against a snooper is harder.

       The  possibility	of an application spying on your keystrokes is of par-
       ticular concern when you	want to	type in	a password or other  sensitive
       data.   The best	solution to this problem is to use a better authoriza-
       tion mechanism than is provided by X.  Given all	of  these  caveats,  a
       simple mechanism	exists for protecting keyboard input in	xterm.

       The  xterm  menu	 (see  MENUS  above)  contains a Secure	Keyboard entry
       which, when enabled, attempts to	ensure that all	keyboard input is  di-
       rected  only  to	xterm (using the GrabKeyboard protocol request).  When
       an application prompts you for a	password (or  other  sensitive	data),
       you  can	 enable	 Secure	Keyboard using the menu, type in the data, and
       then disable Secure Keyboard using the menu again.  This	 ensures  that
       you  know  which	window is accepting your keystrokes.  It cannot	ensure
       that there are no processes which have access to	your  X	 display  that
       might be	observing the keystrokes as well.

       Only  one X client at a time can	grab the keyboard, so when you attempt
       to enable Secure	Keyboard it may	fail.  In this	case,  the  bell  will
       sound.	If the Secure Keyboard succeeds, the foreground	and background
       colors will be exchanged	(as if you selected the	Reverse	Video entry in
       the  Modes  menu);  they	 will  be exchanged again when you exit	secure
       mode.  If the colors do not switch, then	you should be very  suspicious
       that  you  are  being spoofed.  If the application you are running dis-
       plays a prompt before asking for	the password, it is  safest  to	 enter
       secure mode before the prompt gets displayed, and to make sure that the
       prompt gets displayed correctly (in the new colors),  to	 minimize  the
       probability of spoofing.	 You can also bring up the menu	again and make
       sure that a check mark appears next to the entry.

       Secure Keyboard mode will be disabled automatically if your xterm  win-
       dow becomes iconified (or otherwise unmapped), or if you	start up a re-
       parenting window	manager	(that places a title bar or  other  decoration
       around  the  window) while in Secure Keyboard mode.  (This is a feature
       of the X	protocol not easily overcome.)	When this happens,  the	 fore-
       ground  and  background	colors will be switched	back and the bell will
       sound in	warning.

CHARACTER CLASSES
       Clicking	the left pointer button	twice  in  rapid  succession  (double-
       clicking) causes	all characters of the same class (e.g.,	letters, white
       space, punctuation) to be selected as a "word".	Since different	people
       have  different	preferences  for what should be	selected (for example,
       should filenames	be selected as a whole or only the separate subnames),
       the  default mapping can	be overridden through the use of the charClass
       (class CharClass) resource.

       This resource is	a series of comma-separated of range:value pairs.  The
       range is	either a single	number or low-high in the range	of 0 to	65535,
       corresponding to	the code for the character or characters  to  be  set.
       The  value  is arbitrary, although the default table uses the character
       number of the first character occurring in the set.  When not in	 UTF-8
       mode, only the first 256	bytes of this table will be used.

       The default table starts	as follows -

	   static int charClass[256] = {
	   /* NUL  SOH	STX  ETX  EOT  ENQ  ACK	 BEL */

       For example, the	string "33:48,37:48,45-47:48,38:48" indicates that the
       exclamation mark, percent sign,	dash,  period,	slash,	and  ampersand
       characters  should  be  treated the same	way as characters and numbers.
       This is useful for cutting and pasting electronic mailing addresses and
       filenames.

ACTIONS
       It  is  possible	 to  rebind  keys  (or sequences of keys) to arbitrary
       strings for input, by changing the translations resources for the vt100
       or  tek4014  widgets.   Changing	 the  translations resource for	events
       other than key and button events	is not expected, and will cause	unpre-
       dictable	 behavior.   The following actions are provided	for use	within
       the vt100 or tek4014 translations resources:

       allow-color-ops(on/off/toggle)
	       This action set or toggles the allowColorOps  resource  and  is
	       also invoked by the allow-color-ops entry in fontMenu.

       allow-font-ops(on/off/toggle)
	       This  action  set  or  toggles the allowFontOps resource	and is
	       also invoked by the allow-font-ops entry	in fontMenu.

       allow-send-events(on/off/toggle)
	       This action set or toggles the allowSendEvents resource and  is
	       also invoked by the allowsends entry in mainMenu.

       allow-tcap-ops(on/off/toggle)
	       This  action  set  or  toggles the allowTcapOps resource	and is
	       also invoked by the allow-tcap-ops entry	in fontMenu.

       allow-title-ops(on/off/toggle)
	       This action set or toggles the allowTitleOps  resource  and  is
	       also invoked by the allow-title-ops entry in fontMenu.

       allow-window-ops(on/off/toggle)
	       This  action  set or toggles the	allowWindowOps resource	and is
	       also invoked by the allow-window-ops entry in fontMenu.

       alt-sends-escape()
	       This action toggles the state of	the eightBitInput resource.

       bell([percent])
	       This action rings the keyboard bell at the specified percentage
	       above or	below the base volume.

       clear-saved-lines()
	       This  action  does hard-reset() (see below) and also clears the
	       history of lines	saved off the top of the screen.  It  is  also
	       invoked	from  the clearsavedlines entry	in vtMenu.  The	effect
	       is identical to a hardware reset	(RIS) control sequence.

       create-menu(m/v/f/t)
	       This action creates one of the menus used by xterm, if  it  has
	       not been	previously created.  The parameter values are the menu
	       names: mainMenu,	vtMenu,	fontMenu, tekMenu, respectively.

       dabbrev-expand()
	       Expands the word	before cursor by searching  in	the  preceding
	       text  on	 the  screen  and  in  the scrollback buffer for words
	       starting	with that  abbreviation.   Repeating  dabbrev-expand()
	       several times in	sequence searches for an alternative expansion
	       by looking farther back.	 Lack of more matches is signaled by a
	       beep().	Attempts to expand an empty word (i.e.,	when cursor is
	       preceded	by a space) yield  successively	 all  previous	words.
	       Consecutive identical expansions	are ignored.  The word here is
	       defined as a sequence of	non-whitespace characters.  This  fea-
	       ture  partially emulates	the behavior of	"dynamic abbreviation"
	       expansion in Emacs (bound there to M-/).	 Here  is  a  resource
	       setting for xterm which will do the same	thing:

		   *VT100*translations:	   #override \n\
			   Meta	<KeyPress> /:dabbrev-expand()

       deiconify()
	       Changes the window state	back to	normal,	if it was iconified.

       delete-is-del()
	       This action toggles the state of	the deleteIsDEL	resource.

       dired-button()
	       Handles	a button event (other than press and release) by echo-
	       ing the event's position	(i.e., character line and  column)  in
	       the following format:

		       ^X ESC G	<line+"	"> <col+" ">

       iconify()
	       Iconifies the window.

       hard-reset()
	       This action resets the scrolling	region,	tabs, window size, and
	       cursor keys and clears the screen.  It is also invoked from the
	       hardreset entry in vtMenu.

       ignore()
	       This  action  ignores  the event	but checks for special pointer
	       position	escape sequences.

       insert()
	       This action inserts the character or string associated with the
	       key that	was pressed.

       insert-eight-bit()
	       This  action inserts an eight-bit (Meta)	version	of the charac-
	       ter or string associated	with the key that was  pressed.	  This
	       only  applies  to single-byte values.  The exact	action depends
	       on the value of the metaSendsEscape and the  eightBitInput  re-
	       sources.	 The metaSendsEscape resource is tested	first.

	       The  term  "eight-bit" is misleading: xterm checks if the key's
	       value is	less than 128.	If so, xterm adds 128  to  the	value,
	       setting	its eighth bit.	 Otherwise xterm sends an ESC byte be-
	       fore the	key.  In other applications'  documentation,  that  is
	       referred	to as a	"meta key".

       insert-selection(sourcename [, ...])
	       This  action  inserts the string	found in the selection or cut-
	       buffer indicated	by sourcename.	Sources	are checked in the or-
	       der  given (case	is significant)	until one is found.  Commonly-
	       used selections include:	 PRIMARY,  SECONDARY,  and  CLIPBOARD.
	       Cut  buffers  are  typically named CUT_BUFFER0 through CUT_BUF-
	       FER7.

       insert-seven-bit()
	       This action is a	synonym	for insert() The term  "seven-bit"  is
	       misleading:  it only implies that xterm does not	try to add 128
	       to the key's value as in	insert-eight-bit().

       interpret(control-sequence)
	       Interpret the given control  sequence  locally,	i.e.,  without
	       passing	it  to	the host.  This	works by inserting the control
	       sequence	at the front of	the input buffer.  Use "\"  to	escape
	       octal  digits  in  the  string.	Xt does	not allow you to put a
	       null character (i.e., "\000") in	the string.

       keymap(name)
	       This action dynamically defines a new translation  table	 whose
	       resource	 name is name with the suffix Keymap (case is signifi-
	       cant).  The name	None restores the original translation table.

       larger-vt-font()
	       Set the font to the next	larger one, based on the  font	dimen-
	       sions.  See also	set-vt-font().

       load-vt-fonts(name[,class])
	       Load fontnames from the given subresource name and class.  That
	       is, load	the "*VT100.name.font",	resource as "*VT100.font" etc.
	       If no name is given, the	original set of	fontnames is restored.

	       Unlike  set-vt-font(), this does	not affect the escape- and se-
	       lect-fonts, since those are not based on	resource  values.   It
	       does  affect  the  fonts	 loosely organized under the "Default"
	       menu entry: font, boldFont, wideFont and	wideBoldFont.

       maximize()
	       Resizes the window to fill the screen.

       meta-sends-escape()
	       This action toggles the state of	the metaSendsEscape resource.

       popup-menu(menuname)
	       This action displays the	specified  popup  menu.	  Valid	 names
	       (case is	significant) include:  mainMenu, vtMenu, fontMenu, and
	       tekMenu.

       print(printer-flags)
	       This action prints the window and is also invoked by the	 print
	       entry in	mainMenu.

	       The action accepts optional parameters, which temporarily over-
	       ride resource settings.	The parameter values are  matched  ig-
	       noring case:

	       noFormFeed
		    no	form  feed  will  be  sent at the end of the last line
		    printed (i.e., printerFormFeed is ``false'').

	       FormFeed
		    a form feed	will be	sent at	 the  end  of  the  last  line
		    printed (i.e., printerFormFeed is ``true'').

	       noNewLine
		    no	newline	 will  be  sent	 at  the  end of the last line
		    printed, and wrapped lines	will  be  combined  into  long
		    lines (i.e., printerNewLine	is ``false'').

	       NewLine
		    a  newline	will  be  sent	at  the	 end  of the last line
		    printed, and each line will	be limited (by adding  a  new-
		    line)   to	the  screen  width  (i.e.,  printerNewLine  is
		    ``true'').

	       noAttrs
		    the	page is	printed	 without  attributes  (i.e.,  printAt-
		    tributes is	``0'').

	       monoAttrs
		    the	 page  is  printed  with monochrome (vt220) attributes
		    (i.e., printAttributes is ``1'').

	       colorAttrs
		    the	page is	printed	 with  ANSI  color  attributes	(i.e.,
		    printAttributes is ``2'').

       print-everything(printer-flags)
	       This  action  sends the entire text history, in addition	to the
	       text currently visible, to the program given in the printerCom-
	       mand  resource.	 It allows the same optional parameters	as the
	       print action.  With a suitable printer command, the action  can
	       be used to load the text	history	in an editor.

       print-redir()
	       This  action  toggles  the  printerControlMode between 0	and 2.
	       The corresponding popup menu entry is useful for	switching  the
	       printer off if you happen to change your	mind after deciding to
	       print random binary files on the	terminal.

       quit()  This action sends a SIGHUP to the subprogram and	exits.	It  is
	       also invoked by the quit	entry in mainMenu.

       redraw()
	       This  action  redraws the window	and is also invoked by the re-
	       draw entry in mainMenu.

       restore()
	       Restores	the window to the size before it was last maximized.

       scroll-back(count [,units [,mouse] ])
	       This action scrolls the text window backward so that text  that
	       had  previously scrolled	off the	top of the screen is now visi-
	       ble.

	       The count argument indicates the	number of units	(which may  be
	       page, halfpage, pixel, or line) by which	to scroll.

	       An  adjustment can be specified for these values	by appending a
	       "+" or "-" sign followed	by a number, e.g., page-2 to specify 2
	       lines less than a page.

	       If  the	third  parameter mouse is given, the action is ignored
	       when mouse reporting is enabled.

       scroll-forw(count [,units [,mouse] ])
	       This action is similar to scroll-back except that it scrolls in
	       the other direction.

       secure()
	       This  action  toggles the Secure	Keyboard mode described	in the
	       section named SECURITY, and is invoked from the securekbd entry
	       in mainMenu.

       select-cursor-end(destname [, ...])
	       This  action  is	similar	to select-end except that it should be
	       used with select-cursor-start.

       select-cursor-extend()
	       This action is similar to select-extend except that  it	should
	       be used with select-cursor-start.

       select-cursor-start()
	       This  action  is	 similar to select-start except	that it	begins
	       the selection at	the current text cursor	position.

       select-end(destname [, ...])
	       This action puts	the currently selected text into  all  of  the
	       selections or cutbuffers	specified by destname.

       select-extend()
	       This  action  tracks the	pointer	and extends the	selection.  It
	       should only be bound to Motion events.

       select-set()
	       This action stores text that corresponds	to the current	selec-
	       tion, without affecting the selection mode.

       select-start()
	       This  action begins text	selection at the current pointer loca-
	       tion.  See the section on POINTER USAGE for information on mak-
	       ing selections.

       send-signal(signame)
	       This action sends the signal named by signame to	the xterm sub-
	       process (the shell or program specified	with  the  -e  command
	       line  option) and is also invoked by the	suspend, continue, in-
	       terrupt,	hangup,	terminate, and kill entries in mainMenu.   Al-
	       lowable	signal	names  are (case is not	significant): tstp (if
	       supported by the	operating system),  suspend  (same  as	tstp),
	       cont  (if  supported  by	the operating system), int, hup, term,

		      through  escape  codes  (or  specified as	the second and
		      third action arguments, respectively), and

	       s or S indicate the font	selection (as made by programs such as
		      xfontsel(1)) indicated by	the second action argument.

	       If  xterm  is  configured  to support wide characters, an addi-
	       tional two optional parameters are recognized for the  e	 argu-
	       ment: wide font and wide	bold font.

       smaller-vt-font()
	       Set  the	font to	the next smaller one, based on the font	dimen-
	       sions.  See also	set-vt-font().

       soft-reset()
	       This action resets the scrolling	region	and  is	 also  invoked
	       from the	softreset entry	in vtMenu.  The	effect is identical to
	       a soft reset (DECSTR) control sequence.

       spawn-new-terminal(params)
	       Spawn a new xterm process.  This	is available on	systems	 which
	       have a modern version of	the process filesystem,	e.g., "/proc",
	       which xterm can read.

	       Use the "cwd" process entry, e.g.,  /proc/12345/cwd  to	obtain
	       the  working  directory	of the process which is	running	in the
	       current xterm.

	       On  systems  which  have	 the  "exe"   process	entry,	 e.g.,
	       /proc/12345/exe,	 use  this  to	obtain	the actual executable.
	       Otherwise, use the $PATH	variable to find xterm.

	       If parameters are given in the action, pass  them  to  the  new
	       xterm process.

       start-extend()
	       This  action  is	similar	to select-start	except that the	selec-
	       tion is extended	to the current pointer location.

       start-cursor-extend()
	       This action is similar to select-extend except that the	selec-
	       tion is extended	to the current text cursor position.

       string(string)
	       This action inserts the specified text string as	if it had been
	       typed.  Quotation is necessary if the  string  contains	white-
	       space  or  non-alphanumeric characters.	If the string argument
	       begins with the characters "0x",	it is  interpreted  as	a  hex
	       character constant.

       tek-copy()
	       This  action  copies the	escape codes used to generate the cur-
	       rent window contents to a file in the current directory	begin-
	       ning  with  the name COPY.  It is also invoked from the tekcopy
	       entry in	tekMenu.

       tek-page()
	       This action clears the Tektronix	window and is also invoked  by
	       the tekpage entry in tekMenu.

       tek-reset()
	       This  action resets the Tektronix window	and is also invoked by
	       the tekreset entry in tekMenu.

       vi-button()
	       Handles a button	event (other than press	and release) by	 echo-
	       ing a control sequence computed from the	event's	line number in
	       the screen relative to the current line:

		       ESC ^P
	       or
		       ESC ^N

	       according to whether the	event is before, or after the  current
	       line,  respectively.   The ^N (or ^P) is	repeated once for each
	       line that the event differs from	the current line.  The control
	       sequence	 is  omitted  altogether if the	button event is	on the
	       current line.

       visual-bell()
	       This action flashes the window quickly.

       The Tektronix window also has the following action:

       gin-press(l/L/m/M/r/R)
	       This action sends the indicated graphics	input code.

       The default bindings in the VT102 window	use the	SELECT token, which is
       set by the selectToClipboard resource:

			     Meta<KeyPress>: insert-eight-bit()	\n\
			   !Ctrl <Btn1Down>: popup-menu(mainMenu) \n\

       Here is an example which	uses shifted select/paste to copy to the clip-
       board,  and  unshifted select/paste for the primary selection.  In each
       case, a (different) cut buffer is also a	target or source  of  the  se-
       lect/paste  operation.	It  is important to remember however, that cut
       buffers store data in ISO-8859-1	encoding, while	selections  can	 store
       data  in	 a variety of formats and encodings.  While xterm owns the se-
       lection,	it highlights it.  When	it loses the selection,	it removes the
       corresponding  highlight.  But you can still paste from the correspond-
       ing cut buffer.

	   *VT100*translations:	   #override \n\
	       ~Shift~Ctrl<Btn2Up>: insert-selection(PRIMARY, CUT_BUFFER0) \n\
	       Shift~Ctrl<Btn2Up>:  insert-selection(CLIPBOARD,	CUT_BUFFER1) \n\
	       ~Shift<BtnUp>:	    select-end(PRIMARY,	CUT_BUFFER0) \n\
	       Shift<BtnUp>:	    select-end(CLIPBOARD, CUT_BUFFER1)

       Below is	a sample how of	the keymap() action is	used  to  add  special
       keys for	entering commonly-typed	works:

	   *VT100.Translations:	#override <Key>F13: keymap(dbx)
	   *VT100.dbxKeymap.translations: \
		<Key>F14: keymap(None) \n\
		<Key>F17: string("next") string(0x0d) \n\
		<Key>F18: string("step") string(0x0d) \n\
		<Key>F19: string("continue") string(0x0d) \n\
		<Key>F20: string("print	") insert-selection(PRIMARY, CUT_BUFFER0)

       Some  people  prefer  using  the	 left  pointer button for dragging the
       scrollbar thumb.	 That can be setup by altering	the  translations  re-
       source, e.g.,

	   *VT100.scrollbar.translations:#override \n\
		<Btn5Down>:StartScroll(Forward)	\n\
		<Btn1Down>:StartScroll(Continuous) MoveThumb() NotifyThumb() \n\
		<Btn4Down>:StartScroll(Backward) \n\
		<Btn1Motion>:MoveThumb() NotifyThumb() \n\
		<BtnUp>:  NotifyScroll(Proportional) EndScroll()

CONTROL	SEQUENCES AND KEYBOARD
       The  Xterm Control Sequences document lists the control sequences which
       an application can send xterm to	make it	 perform  various  operations.
       Most  of	these operations are standardized, from	either the DEC or Tek-
       tronix terminals, or from more widely used standards such as ISO-6429.

ENVIRONMENT
       Xterm sets several environment variables:

       DISPLAY
	    is the display name, pointing to the X server (see	DISPLAY	 NAMES
	    in X()).

       TERM is	set  according	to the termcap (or terminfo) entry which it is
	    using as a reference.

       WINDOWID
	    is set to the X window id number of	the xterm window.

       XTERM_LOCALE
	    shows the locale which was used by xterm on	startup.   Some	 shell
	    initialization scripts may set a different locale.

       XTERM_SHELL
	    is	set  to	the pathname of	the program which is invoked.  Usually
	    that is a shell program, e.g., /bin/sh.  Since it is not necessar-
	    ily	a shell	program	however, it is distinct	from "SHELL".

       XTERM_VERSION
	    is	set  to	 the string displayed by the -version option.  That is
	    normally an	identifier for the X Window libraries  used  to	 build
	    xterm, followed by xterm's patch number in parenthesis.  The patch
	    number is also part	of the response	 to  a	Secondary  Device  At-
	    tributes (DA) control sequence (see	Xterm Control Sequences).

       Depending  on your system configuration,	xterm may also set the follow-
       ing:

       COLUMNS
	    the	width of the xterm in characters (cf: "stty columns").

       HOME when xterm is configured to	update utmp.

       LINES
	    the	height of the xterm in characters (cf: "stty rows").

       LOGNAME
	    when xterm is configured to	update utmp.

       SHELL
	    when xterm is configured to	update utmp.  It is also  set  if  you
	    provide the	shell name as the optional parameter.

       TERMCAP
	    the	 contents  of  the  termcap entry corresponding	to $TERM, with
	    lines and columns values substituted for the  actual  size	window
	    you	have created.

       TERMINFO
	    may	be defined to a	nonstandard location in	the configure script.

FILES
       The actual pathnames given may differ on	your system.

       /etc/utmp
	    the	system logfile,	which records user logins.

       /etc/wtmp
	    the	system logfile,	which records user logins and logouts.

       /usr/local/lib/X11/app-defaults/XTerm
	    the	xterm default application resources.

       /usr/local/lib/X11/app-defaults/XTerm-color
	    the	 xterm	color application resources.  If your display supports
	    color, use this
		      *customization: -color
	    in your .Xdefaults file to automatically use  this	resource  file
	    rather  than /usr/local/lib/X11/app-defaults/XTerm.	 If you	do not
	    do this, xterm uses	its compiled-in	default	resource settings  for
	    colors.

ERROR MESSAGES
       Most of the fatal error messages	from xterm use the following format:
	      xterm: Error XXX,	errno YYY: ZZZ
       The XXX codes (which are	used by	xterm as its exit-code)	are listed be-
       low, with a brief explanation.

       1    is used for	miscellaneous errors, usually accompanied  by  a  spe-
	    cific message,

BUGS
       Large  pastes do	not work on some systems.  This	is not a bug in	xterm;
       it is a bug in the pseudo terminal  driver  of  those  systems.	 xterm
       feeds large pastes to the pty only as fast as the pty will accept data,
       but some	pty drivers do not return enough information to	 know  if  the
       write has succeeded.

       Many of the options are not resettable after xterm starts.

       This program still needs	to be rewritten.  It should be split into very
       modular sections, with the various emulators being completely  separate
       widgets	that  do not know about	each other.  Ideally, you'd like to be
       able to pick and	choose emulator	widgets	and stick them into  a	single
       control widget.

       There  needs  to	 be  a	dialog box to allow entry of the Tek COPY file
       name.
