SYNOPSIS

xtermset [-option ...]

DESCRIPTION

xtermset allows you to change the characteristics of an xterm window from the command line. Most options have the same names as those that you would give xterm at startup.

OPTIONS

-store [<filename>]
  This option will save all the other command line options given to the filename. If filename is omitted then the options will be written to ~/.xtermsetrc.
-default [<filename>]
  This option will load options from the specified filename. If the filename is omitted then the options will be loaded from ~/.xtermsetrc. Options specified on the command line preceed those that are in the options file.
-f, -force
  xtermset normally checks if you are using it on a correct terminal (xterm (derivative) or dtterm (derivative). With this option you can override this checking.
-T string, -title string
  Sets the window title.
-n string
  Sets the icon name.
-fg color
  Sets the VT100 foreground color.
-bg color
  Sets the VT100 background color.
-mousefg color
  Sets the mouse pointer foreground color.
-mousebg color
  Sets the mouse pointer background color.
-tekfg color
  Sets the Tektronix emulation window foreground color.
-tekbg color
  Sets the Tektronix emulation window background color.
-cr color
  Sets the text cursor color.
-hc color
  Sets the color for highlighted (selected) text.
-fn font-spec, -font font-spec
  Sets the font.
-geom geometry-spec, -geometry geometry-spec
  Sets the window size and position; see X(1) for details.

BUGS

-geom does not support offsets from the left or bottom of the screen. If the geometry-spec isn’t in the correct format, the output will be strange.
