koi8rxterm - X terminal emulator for KOI8-R environments


koi8rxterm [ xterm-options ]


koi8rxterm is a wrapper around the xterm(1) program that invokes the latter program with
the “KOI8RXTerm” X resource class set. All arguments 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 determined, 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 system, the “xfonts-cyrillic” 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, uxterm(1), is available for Unicode UTF-8 environments.


The values of these variables are checked, in order, to determine the character set
used by the current locale.
