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.
