koi8rxterm (1)

Name

koi8rxterm - R environments

Synopsis

koi8rxterm [ xterm-options ]

Description

KOI8RXTERM(1)                   X Window System                  KOI8RXTERM(1)



NAME
       koi8rxterm - X terminal emulator for KOI8-R environments

SYNOPSIS
       koi8rxterm [ xterm-options ]

DESCRIPTION
       koi8rxterm  is  a  wrapper around the xterm(1) program that invokes the
       latter program with the "KOI8RXTerm" X resource class set.   All  argu-
       ments  to koi8rxterm are passed to xterm without processing; the -class
       and -k8 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 deter-
       mined, the locale "ru_RU.KOI8-R" (the Russian language as used  in  the
       territory  of  Russia,  with the KOI8-R character set) is assumed.  The
       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 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  sys-
       tem,  the  "xfonts-cyrillic" package provides the fonts that koi8rxterm
       uses by default.   To  change  the  fonts  koi8rxterm  uses,  edit  the
       /usr/share/X11/app-defaults/KOI8RXTerm file.

       A  similar  wrapper, uxterm(1), is available for Unicode UTF-8 environ-
       ments.

ENVIRONMENT
       LC_ALL, LC_CTYPE, LANG
              The values of these variables are checked, in order,  to  deter-
              mine the character set used by the current locale.

AUTHOR
       koi8rxterm was written by Branden Robinson and is very heavily based on
       uxterm, by Thomas Dickey.  The assistance of Jurij Smakov  was  invalu-
       able in sanity-checking its operation.
