Change configuration of a running xterm and compatible terminal
emulators (e.g. rxvt).
See XTerm::Conf for a complete option list.
Additionaly, <B>xterm-confB> supports the <B>-fB> option to force a
terminal configuration change without checking the TERM environment
variable before. This is useful e.g. when running in a screen or
tmux session within an xterm.
If xterm-conf is called on an unsupported terminal, then nothing
xterm-conf --is-supported can be used to check if a terminal is
support, if so, a true exit value (exit code = 0) is returned,
otherwise a false exit value (exit code = 1).
Change the title, foreground and background colors of the running xterm:
xterm-conf --title "The new xterm title" --fg black --bg white
If running a screen or tmux in an xterm, then the --force
switch has to be used because of the different TERM value:
xter-conf --force --title "The new xterm title" --fg black --bg white
