NAME
       xtermset	- change settings of an	xterm

SYNOPSIS
       xtermset	[-option ...]

DESCRIPTION
       xtermset	 allows	 you  to change	the characteristics of an xterm	window
       from the	command	line. Most options have	the same names as  those  that
       you would give xterm at startup.

OPTIONS
       -store [_filename_]
	       This  option will save all the other command line options given
	       to the filename.	If filename is omitted then the	 options  will
	       be written to ~/.xtermsetrc.

       -default	[_filename_]
	       This  option  will load options from the	specified filename. If
	       the filename is omitted then the	options	will  be  loaded  from
	       ~/.xtermsetrc.  Options	specified  on the command line preceed
	       those that are in the options file.

       -f, -force
	       xtermset	normally checks	if you are using it on a correct  ter-
	       minal (xterm (derivative) or dtterm (derivative). With this op-
	       tion you	can override this checking.

       -T string, -title string
	       Sets the	window title.

       -n string
	       Sets the	icon name.

       -fg color
	       Sets the	VT100 foreground color.

       -bg color
	       Sets the	VT100 background color.

       -mousefg	color
	       Sets the	mouse pointer foreground color.

       -mousebg	color
	       Sets the	mouse pointer background color.

       -tekfg color
	       Sets the	Tektronix emulation window foreground color.

       -tekbg color
	       Sets the	Tektronix emulation window background color.

       -cr color
	       Sets the	text cursor color.

       -hc color
	       Sets the	color for highlighted (selected) text.

       -fn font-spec, -font font-spec
	       Sets the	font.

       -geom geometry-spec, -geometry geometry-spec
	       Sets the	window size and	position; see X(1) for details.

FILES

SEE ALSO
       bash(1),	xterm(1), X(1)

BUGS
       -geom does not support offsets from the left or bottom of  the  screen.
       If  the	geometry-spec  isn't in	the correct format, the	output will be
       strange.
