koi8rxterm - X terminal emulator for KOI8-R environments
2. SYNOPSIS ▲
koi8rxterm [ xterm-options ]
3. DESCRIPTION ▲
koi8rxterm is a wrapper around the
R xterm(1) program that invokes the latter program with the (oqKOI8RXTerm(cq X resource class set. All arguments to
koi8rxterm are passed to
xterm without processing; the
-k8 options should not be specified because they are used by the wrapper. See the
R xterm manual page for more information on xterm-options .
The environment's locale settings (see « ENVIRONMENT » below) are used to discern the locale's character set. If no current locale can be determined, the locale (oqru_RU.KOI8-R(cq (the Russian language as used in the territory of Russia, with the KOI8-R character set) is assumed. The
R locale(1) utility is used to determine whether the system supports the selected locale. If it does not,
koi8rxterm will exit with an error and report the output of
R locale .
Note: koi8rxterm may produce unexpected results if the current locale is set to one in which the KOI8-R character encoding is not supported, or if fonts using that encoding are not available. In the Debian system, the (oqxfonts-cyrillic(cq package provides the fonts that
koi8rxterm uses by default. To change the fonts
koi8rxterm uses, edit the /etc/X11/app-defaults/KOI8RXTerm file.
A similar wrapper,
R uxterm(1), is available for Unicode UTF-8 environments.
4. ENVIRONMENT ▲
LC_ALL\fR, LC_CTYPE, \fBLANG
The values of these variables are checked, in order, to determine the character set used by the current locale.
5. AUTHOR ▲
koi8rxterm was written by Branden Robinson and is very heavily based on
R uxterm , by Thomas Dickey. The assistance of Jurij Smakov was invaluable in sanity-checking its operation.
