NAME
       Terminal - A Terminal emulator for X

SYNOPSIS
       Terminal

DESCRIPTION
       This manual page documents briefly the Terminal application.

       Terminal  is what is known as an X terminal emulator, often referred to
       as terminal or shell. It provides an equivalent to  the  old  fashioned
       text  screen  on  your desktop, but on which can easily the screen with
       other graphical applications.

       Terminal emulates the xterm application developed by the X  Consortium.
       In  turn,  the  xterm  applications emulates the DEC VT102 terminal and
       also supports the DEC VT220 escape sequences. An escape sequence  is  a
       series  of characters that with the Esc character. Terminal accepts all
       of the escape sequences that the VT102  and  VT220  terminals  use  for
       functions such as to position the cursor and to clear(1,3x,3x clrtobot) the screen.



OPTIONS
       Terminal takes the following command line options:

       --help Print a help screen and exit.

       --version
              Output version(1,3,5) information and exit.



ENVIRONMENT
       Terminal's  behaviour  is  affected  by the following environment vari-
       ables.


       XDG_CONFIG_HOME
              Specifies the root for all user-specific configuration files. If
              this environment variable is unset, it defaults to ~/.config/

       XDG_CONFIG_DIRS
              Set  of  preference  ordered  base directories relative to which
              configuration files  should  be  searched  in(1,8)  addition  to  the
              $XDG_CONFIG_HOME base directory. The directories should be sepa-
              rated with a colon.

       XDG_DATA_HOME
              Specifies the root for all user-specific  data  files.  If  this
              environment variables is unset, it defaults to ~/.local/share/

       XDG_DATA_DIRS
              Set  of  preference  ordered  base directories relative to which
              data files should be searched in(1,8) addition to the  $XDG_DATA_HOME
              base  directory.  The  directories  should  be  separated with a
              colon.



FILES
       Terminal reads its configuration from the files $XDG_CONFIG_DIRS/Termi-
       nal/terminalrc.   Terminal  creates the main menubar and the popup menu(3x,n,n tk_menuSetFocus)
       from the files  $XDG_DATA_DIRS/Terminal/Terminal.ui  and  the  toolbars
       layout from the files $XDG_DATA_DIRS/Terminal/Terminal-toolbars.ui.  If
       you customize the toolbars,  the  new  toolbars  layout  is  stored  to
       $XDG_DATA_HOME/Terminal/Terminal-toolbars.ui.
