XTERM(1)		    General Commands Manual		      XTERM(1)

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.  It sets the boldFont resource.

	       This font must be the same height and width as the normal font,
	       otherwise  it  is  ignored.   If	only one of the	normal or bold
	       fonts is	specified, it will be used as the normal font and  the
	       bold font will be produced by overstriking this font.

	       See  also  the  discussion  of  boldMode	and alwaysBoldMode re-
	       sources.

       -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 initially 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	(the first two are  equivalent	since  the  descriptor
	       follows the last	"/"):

		      -S/dev/pts/123/45
		      -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.	The corresponding resource name	is borderColor.	 xterm
	       uses the	X Toolkit default, which is "XtDefaultForeground".

       -bg color
	       This  option  specifies	the color to use for the background of
	       the window.  The	corresponding  resource	 name  is  background.
	       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 corresponding resource name is foreground.  The default  is
	       "XtDefaultForeground."

       -fn font
	       This option specifies the font to be used for displaying	normal
	       text.  The corresponding	resource name is font.	 The  resource
	       value 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.  The
	       corresponding resource name is iconic.

       -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.  The correspond-
	       ing resource name is reverseVideo.

       +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  no-
	       tion  of	 the  screen  size,  and  ptySttySize which resets the
	       screen size after other terminal	 initialization	 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 de-
	       fault 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-message	giving
	       the  pseudo-terminal's  notion of the screen size.  The default
	       is "false" on Linux and OS X systems, "true" otherwise.

       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 keyboardType 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 keyboardType 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	"false."

	       When this feature is enabled, xterm will	sense the state	of the
	       Scroll Lock key each time  it  acquires	focus.	 Pressing  the
	       Scroll Lock key toggles xterm's internal	state, as well as tog-
	       gling the associated LED.  While	the  Scroll  Lock  is  active,
	       xterm attempts to keep a	viewport on the	same set of lines.  If
	       the current viewport is scrolled	past  the  limit  set  by  the
	       saveLines resource, then	Scroll Lock has	no further effect.

	       The reason for setting the default to "false." is to avoid user
	       surprise.  This key is generally	unused in keyboard  configura-
	       tions,  and has not acquired a standard meaning even when it is
	       used in that manner.  Consequently, users have assigned it  for
	       ad hoc purposes.

       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 would	create a  very
	       large  security	hole,  therefore enabling this resource	force-
	       fully disables  the  allowXXXOps	 resources.   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.

	       This font must be the same height and width as the normal font,
	       otherwise it is ignored.	 If only one of	 the  normal  or  bold
	       fonts  is specified, it will be used as the normal font and the
	       bold font will be produced by overstriking this font.

	       See also	the discussion	of  boldMode  and  alwaysBoldMode  re-
	       sources.

       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."

	       Xterm's	state  parser  recognizes  several  types  of  control
	       strings which can contain text, e.g.,

	       APC (Application	Program	Command),
	       DCS (Device Control String),
	       OSC (Operating System Command),
	       PM (Privacy Message), and
	       SOS (Start of String),

	       Each should end with a string-terminator	(a  special  character
	       which  cannot appear in these strings).	Ordinary control char-
	       acters found within the string are not ignored; they  are  pro-
	       cessed without interfering with the process of accumulating the
	       control string's	content.  Xterm	recognizes these  controls  in
	       all modes, although some	of the functions may be	suppressed af-
	       ter parsing the control.

	       When enabled, this feature allows the user to exit from an  un-
	       terminated  control  string  when any of	these ordinary control
	       characters are found:

	       control/D (used as an end of file in many shells),
	       control/H (backspace),
	       control/I (tab-feed),
	       control/J (line feed aka	newline),
	       control/K (vertical tab),
	       control/L (form feed),
	       control/M (carriage return),
	       control/N (shift-out),
	       control/O (shift-in),
	       control/Q (XOFF),
	       control/X (cancel)

       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.

	       SetWinLines
		    Resize to a	given number of	lines, at least	24.

	       SetWinPosition (3)
		    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 value.

	       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
	       value.

	       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.

	       Although	the default is "14.", this may not be the same as  the
	       pointsize for the default bitmap	font, i.e., that assigned with
	       the -fn option, or the font resource.  For example, the "fixed"
	       font  usually  has a pointsize of "8.".	If you set faceSize to
	       match the size of the bitmap font, then switching between  bit-
	       map  and	 TrueType fonts	via the	font menu will give comparable
	       sizes for the window.

	       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 "default."

	       The resource values are strings,	evaluated  as  booleans	 after
	       startup.

	       false
		    disable the	feature	and use	the normal (bitmap) font.

	       true
		    startup  using the TrueType	font specified by the faceName
		    and	faceSize resource settings.  If	there is no value  for
		    faceName,  disable the feature and use the normal (bitmap)
		    font.

		    After startup, you can still  switch  to/from  the	bitmap
		    font using the "TrueType Fonts" menu entry.

	       default
		    startup  using  the	 normal	 (bitmap) font,	but enable the
		    "TrueType Fonts" menu entry	 to  allow  runtime  switching
		    to/from TrueType fonts.

		    If there is	no faceName resource set, then runtime switch-
		    ing	to TrueType fonts is disabled.	Xterm has  a  separate
		    compiled-in	 value for faceName for	the special case where
		    renderFont is "default".  That is normally "mono".

       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."

       showWrapMarks (class ShowWrapMarks)
	       For  debugging  xterm  and applications that may	manipulate the
	       wrapped-line flag by writing text at the	right margin,  show  a
	       mark  on	 the right inner-border	of the window.	The mark shows
	       which lines have	the flag set.

       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.

       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.

       initialFont (class InitialFont)
	       Specifies  which	 of the	four Tektronix fonts to	use initially.

   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.

		     As	a special case,	the XON	/  XOFF	 keys  (control/S  and
		     control/Q)	are ignored.

	      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 */
	       32,   1,	  1,   1,   1,	 1,   1,   1,
	   /*  BS   HT	 NL   VT   NP	CR   SO	  SI */
		1,  32,	  1,   1,   1,	 1,   1,   1,
	   /* DLE  DC1	DC2  DC3  DC4  NAK  SYN	 ETB */
		1,   1,	  1,   1,   1,	 1,   1,   1,
	   /* CAN   EM	SUB  ESC   FS	GS   RS	  US */
		1,   1,	  1,   1,   1,	 1,   1,   1,

       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.

       copy-selection(destname [, ...])
	       This  action  puts  the currently selected text into all	of the
	       selections or cutbuffers	specified by destname.	Unlike select-
	       end,  it	does not send a	mouse position or otherwise modify the
	       internal	selection state.

       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, including font, boldFont,  wideFont	and  wideBold-
	       Font.

       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.

       readline-button()
	       Supports	the optional readline feature by echoing repeated cur-
	       sor  forward  or	 backward  control sequences on	button release
	       event, to request that the host application update  its	notion
	       of the cursor's position	to match the button event.

       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.

       scroll-lock(on/off/toggle)
	       This  action  toggles  internal state which tells xterm whether
	       Scroll Lock is active, subject to the allowScrollLock resource.

       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.	It also	 sends
	       a  mouse	 position  and updates the internal selection state to
	       reflect the end of the selection	process.

       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,
	       quit, alrm, alarm (same as alrm)	and kill.

       set-8-bit-control(on/off/toggle)
	       This  action  toggles  the eightBitControl resource and is also
	       invoked from the	8-bit-control entry in vtMenu.

       set-allow132(on/off/toggle)
	       This action toggles the c132 resource and is also invoked  from
	       the allow132 entry in vtMenu.

       set-altscreen(on/off/toggle)
	       This action toggles between the alternate and current screens.

       set-appcursor(on/off/toggle)
	       This  action  toggles  the handling Application Cursor Key mode
	       and is also invoked by the appcursor entry in vtMenu.

       set-appkeypad(on/off/toggle)
	       This action toggles the handling	of Application Keypad mode and
	       is also invoked by the appkeypad	entry in vtMenu.

       set-autolinefeed(on/off/toggle)
	       This  action  toggles  automatic	 insertion of linefeeds	and is
	       also invoked by the autolinefeed	entry in vtMenu.

       set-autowrap(on/off/toggle)
	       This action toggles automatic wrapping of  long	lines  and  is
	       also invoked by the autowrap entry in vtMenu.

       set-backarrow(on/off/toggle)
	       This  action  toggles the backarrowKey resource and is also in-
	       voked from the backarrow	key entry in vtMenu.

       set-bellIsUrgent(on/off/toggle)
	       This action toggles the bellIsUrgent resource and is  also  in-

	       This action sets	the font or fonts currently being used in  the
	       VT102  window.	The  first argument is a single	character that
	       specifies the font to be	used:

	       d or D indicate the default font	(the font initially used  when
		      xterm was	started),

	       1  through  6 indicate the fonts	specified by the font1 through
		      font6 resources,

	       e or E indicate the normal and bold fonts that  have  been  set
		      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()

	       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:

       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.
