uxterm - X terminal emulator for Unicode (UTF-8) environments
2. SYNOPSIS ▲
uxterm [ xterm-options ]
3. DESCRIPTION ▲
uxterm is a wrapper around the
R xterm(1) program that invokes the latter program with the (oqUXTerm(cq X resource class set. All arguments to
uxterm are passed to
xterm without processing; the
-u8 options should not be specified because they are used by the wrapper. See the
xterm manual page for more information on xterm-options .
The environment's locale settings (see « ENVIRONMENT » below) are used to discern the locale's character set. If no current locale can be determined, the locale (oqen_US(cq (the English language as used in the territory of the United States) is assumed. The
R locale(1) utility is used to determine whether the system supports the selected locale. If it does not,
uxterm will exit with an error and report the output of
R locale .
Note: uxterm may produce unexpected results if the current locale is set to one in which the UTF-8 character encoding is not supported, or if fonts using the ISO 10646-1 character set are not available. In the Debian system, the (oqxfonts-base(cq package provides the fonts that
uxterm uses by default. To change the fonts
uxterm uses, edit the /etc/X11/app-defaults/UXTerm file.
A similar wrapper,
R koi8rxterm(1), is available for KOI8-R 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.
