kxterm - the CERN KUIP terminal emulator


kxterm [class] [options]


kxterm is a terminal emulator combining the best features of the (now defunct) Apollo DM
pads (like: input and transcript pads, automatic file backup of transcript pad, string
search in pads, etc.) and the Korn shell emacs-style command line editing and command line
recall mechanism. For more detailed information about the program, please see the online
help available from the kxterm Help menu.

kxterm has a number of X resources which can be set by the user; these are listed in the
online help and in the file /etc/X11/app-defaults/KXterm, where the default values are
set. It should be noted that when kxterm is acting as a client for another application,
the desired X resource should be prefixed by "Kx" plus the class name of the application.
So for application "Foo" the kxterm resource class would be KxFoo, and one would set
KxFoo*background, etc. One can also set the resource class of a kxterm window via the
command-line with the class argument.
