You have specified the geometry for xterm too high in the hierarchy, and that 24x80 or whatever the -geometry parameter happens to be is applying to the menus in pixels. Finally, it reserves F1 function-key for a popup menu. By embedding special controls in the text, these codes also allow control over the placement and display charachacteristics location, color, etc. Most full-screen applications such as vi are designed to use the ioctl calls that return the screen size. The complication is that xterm is using all of the flag bits in each cell. Older versions of xterm make a fake bold font for the other choices via the fonts menu by drawing the characters offset by one pixel.
From the outset, the page provided a link to a snapshot of the current source. However, sometimes the font server gives a poor match. First the auxiliary numeric keypad. None of the Linux distributions provided a separate package before 2003 when Mike Harris created a package of for Red Hat. Modern xterm provides the menu, plus a feature adapted from rxvt: pressing the shifted keypad plus or minus keys steps through the font menu selections, in order of their size. But its wrapping behavior is incompatible with xterm and any vt100 emulator.
Well, it may be set, but not correctly. I've forwarded patches since one year, and these patches has never been included by upstream. Clone the Git repository You can clone the xterm. Also, make sure to manually install dependencies and build xterm. Now, it displays in a bright color and normal font. Here are screenshots showing the ncurses test-program displaying video attributes including italics. You lose some xterm functions when you remap the keyboard, however this script implements a scroll back buffer of 1000 lines which you scroll through using Shift and Up a.
If a color is never needed xterm allocates 20 colors in this manner , that reduces the number of slots in the color map that are needed. These utilities produce a Makefile from the Imakefile. One problem is in the second and fourth steps. That should be reported as a bug, to me. This works for modern xterm and dtterm, but not for other variations:! That style of coding fit easily into the existing logic of xterm.
Working with remote sessions Portable MobaXterm gives you the possibility to launch remote sessions with ease. However, it was mainly popular with Red Hat users who wanted to color their manpages. None of the modified keys were correct, since none of those are described by termcap. But the reason that it's been low-priority is that it's of very limited usefulness when copying between terminal sessions and for that matter, from other clients. Major xterm cleanup including prototyping , and fixes to the colour code Thomas E. On a related note, some people want to know how to read the title from an xterm.
For specific terminal emulators, there are predefined color palettes which can be enumerated easily enough — and can be programmed using these escape sequences. This would require that it provide the same escape sequences for the editing and numeric keypads. Technically, not implementing bce or allowing the choice between it and its complement is not a bug, since few hardware terminals with good reason implemented this feature. Most of the bugs in the Device Attributes responses remain, but it works a little better with vim. You have to determine what did. The problematic feature dealt with clearing tab-stops selection 2.
There were a few additions! Email from Jim Gettys September 1998 provides some background: Cast of thousands. Neither program has a change-log, so it is not easy to say which influenced the other. If your terminal or the application running in it has a dark background, then darker blues are hard to see. Here are copies of the file in various forms: , , and. The problems with setmode 1049 were fixed after some time; other issues linger on. Notes from 2010 — Some of the function-key logic was adapted from xterm; generally refactoring the xterm source-code to make it appear different. I am listed at the end of the man page under authors.
Apparently it was written for an obsolete version on Unixware. There is no point in having two differently-worded descriptions of the same identical feature. For those who are not constrained by cost, since xterm provides an experimental compile-time option to support italics. Your printer probably does not understand this sort of input. Use the translations in the system's app-defaults file as a guide.
Unix-like terminal with bash shell and several graphical tools The program integrates a terminal with a bash shell script which gives you the freedom to run Unix commands e. Part of that involved copying many aspects of the way Internet Explorer worked, including the way it worked with the Microsoft Windows clipboard. If it is not listed in either one of the files, find the nearest match and add an alias to it. The page spawned a few imitators with no better methodology , none was systematic, none did any analysis. Instead, they implement the most commonly-used control sequences, and there are differences between them. That is two bytes, which doubled the amount of memory used by xterm for the scrollback. However, that is only a skeleton.
