       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.

              xlsfonts program.
