RXVT(1)                             X Tools                            RXVT(1)



NAME
       rxvt(ouR XVT) [rxvt] (1,ouR XVT) [urxvtc] (1,ouR XVT) [urxvtd] (1,ouR XVT) [wterm] (1) (ouR XVT) - a VT102 emulator for the X window system


SYNOPSIS
       rxvt(ouR XVT) [rxvt] (1,ouR XVT) [urxvtc] (1,ouR XVT) [urxvtd] (1,ouR XVT) [wterm] (1) [options] [-e command [ args ]]


DESCRIPTION
       rxvt(ouR XVT) [rxvt] (1,ouR XVT) [urxvtc] (1,ouR XVT) [urxvtd] (1,ouR XVT) [wterm] (1),  version(1,3,5)  2.7.10, is a colour vt102 terminal emulator intended as
       an xterm(1) replacement for users(1,5) who do not require features  such  as
       Tektronix  4014  emulation  and  toolkit-style  configurability.   As a
       result, rxvt(ouR XVT) [rxvt] (1,ouR XVT) [urxvtc] (1,ouR XVT) [urxvtd] (1,ouR XVT) [wterm] (1) uses much less(1,3) swap space -- a significant advantage on  a
       machine serving many X sessions.



OPTIONS
       The  rxvt(ouR XVT) [rxvt] (1,ouR XVT) [urxvtc] (1,ouR XVT) [urxvtd] (1,ouR XVT) [wterm] (1)  options  (mostly  a subset of xterms) are listed below.  In
       keeping with the smaller-is-better philosophy, options  may  be  elimi-
       nated or default values chosen at compile-time, so options and defaults
       listed may not accurately reflect the version(1,3,5) installed on your system.
       `rxvt(ouR XVT) [rxvt] (1,ouR XVT) [urxvtc] (1,ouR XVT) [urxvtd] (1,ouR XVT) [wterm] (1)  -h  gives  a  list of major compile-time options on the Options
       line.  Option descriptions may be prefixed with  which  compile  option
       each  is  dependent  upon.   e.g.  `Compile  XIM:  requires XIM on the
       Options line.  Note: `rxvt(ouR XVT) [rxvt] (1,ouR XVT) [urxvtc] (1,ouR XVT) [urxvtd] (1,ouR XVT) [wterm] (1) -help gives  a  list  of  all  command-line
       options compiled into your version.

       Note  that  rxvt(ouR XVT) [rxvt] (1,ouR XVT) [urxvtc] (1,ouR XVT) [urxvtd] (1,ouR XVT) [wterm] (1)  permits the resource name to be used as a long-option
       (--/++ option) so the potential command-line options  are  far  greater
       than those listed.  For example: `rxvt(ouR XVT) [rxvt] (1,ouR XVT) [urxvtc] (1,ouR XVT) [urxvtd] (1,ouR XVT) [wterm] (1) --loginShell --color1 Orange.

       Also  note that if(3,n) you do not explictly specify a font (-fn and -fm) or
       a multichar encoding(3,n) method (-km), rxvt(ouR XVT) [rxvt] (1,ouR XVT) [urxvtc] (1,ouR XVT) [urxvtd] (1,ouR XVT) [wterm] (1) will  select(2,7,2 select_tut)  a  font  for  the
       preferable encoding(3,n) according to your locale.  Supported encodings are:
       ISO-8859-n (n=1...15), KOI8-R, KOI8-U, EUC-JP, Shift_JIS, EUC-KR,  EUC-
       CN (aka GB), and Big5.

RESOURCES (available also as long-options)
       Note: `rxvt(ouR XVT) [rxvt] (1,ouR XVT) [urxvtc] (1,ouR XVT) [urxvtd] (1,ouR XVT) [wterm] (1) --help gives a list of all resources (long  options)  com-
       piled  into your version.  If compiled with internal Xresources support
       (i.e. rxvt(ouR XVT) [rxvt] (1,ouR XVT) [urxvtc] (1,ouR XVT) [urxvtd] (1,ouR XVT) [wterm] (1) -h lists .Xdefaults) then rxvt(ouR XVT) [rxvt] (1,ouR XVT) [urxvtc] (1,ouR XVT) [urxvtd] (1,ouR XVT) [wterm] (1) accepts application  defaults
       set(7,n,1 builtins)     in(1,8)     XAPPLOADDIR/Rxvt    (compile-time    defined:    usually
       /usr/lib/X11/app-defaults/Rxvt) and resources set(7,n,1 builtins) in(1,8)  ~/.Xdefaults,  or
       ~/.Xresources if(3,n) ~/.Xdefaults does not exist.  Note that when reading X
       resources, rxvt(ouR XVT) [rxvt] (1,ouR XVT) [urxvtc] (1,ouR XVT) [urxvtd] (1,ouR XVT) [wterm] (1) recognizes two class names: XTerm and Rxvt.  The  class
       name  XTerm allows resources common to both rxvt(ouR XVT) [rxvt] (1,ouR XVT) [urxvtc] (1,ouR XVT) [urxvtd] (1,ouR XVT) [wterm] (1) and xterm to be easily
       configured, while the class name Rxvt allows resources unique to  rxvt(ouR XVT) [rxvt] (1,ouR XVT) [urxvtc] (1,ouR XVT) [urxvtd] (1,ouR XVT) [wterm] (1),
       notably  colours  and key-handling, to be shared between different rxvt(ouR XVT) [rxvt] (1,ouR XVT) [urxvtc] (1,ouR XVT) [urxvtd] (1,ouR XVT) [wterm] (1)
       configurations.  If no resources are specified, suitable defaults  will
       be  used.  Command-line arguments can be used to override resource set-
       tings.  The following resources are allowed:


       geometry: geom
              Create the window with the specified X window geometry  [default
              80x24]; option -geometry.

       background: colour
              Use  the  specified  colour  as  the  windows background colour
              [default White]; option -bg.

       foreground: colour
              Use the specified  colour  as  the  windows  foreground  colour
              [default Black]; option -fg.

       colorn: colour
              Use  the specified colour for the colour value n, where 0-7 cor-
              responds to low-intensity (normal) colours and 8-15  corresponds
              to  high-intensity  (bold  =  bright  foreground, blink = bright
              background)  colours.   The  canonical  names  are  as  follows:
              0=black,  1=red,  2=green,  3=yellow, 4=blue, 5=magenta, 6=cyan,
              7=white, but the actual colour names used are listed in(1,8) the COL-
              ORS AND GRAPHICS section.

       colorBD: colour
              Use  the  specified  colour  to display bold characters when the
              foreground colour is the default.

       colorUL: colour
              Use the specified colour to display underlined  characters  when
              the foreground colour is the default.

       colorRV: colour
              Use  the  specified  colour  as the background for reverse video
              characters.

       cursorColor: colour

              the foreground colour; option -cr.

       cursorColor2: colour
              Use the specified colour for the colour of the cursor text.  For
              this to take effect, cursorColor must also  be  specified.   The
              default is to use the background colour.

       reverseVideo: boolean
              True:  simulate  reverse  video  by  foreground  and  background
              colours; option -rv.  False: regular screen  colours  [default];
              option +rv.  See note in(1,8) COLORS AND GRAPHICS section.

       jumpScroll: boolean
              True:   specify  that  jump  scrolling  should  be  used.   When

              option +j.

       inheritPixmap: boolean
              True: make the background inherit the  parent  windows  pixmap,
              giving  artificial transparency.  False: do not inherit the par-
              ent windows pixmap.

       scrollColor: colour
              Use the specified colour for the scrollbar [default #B2B2B2].

       troughColor: colour
              Use  the  specified  colour  for  the  scrollbars  trough  area
              [default  #969696].   Only  relevant for normal (non XTerm/NeXT)
              scrollbar.

       backgroundPixmap: file(1,n)[;geom]
              Use the  specified  XPM  file(1,n)  (note  the  `.xpm  extension  is
              optional)  for  the  background  and also optionally specify its
              scaling with a geometry string(3,n) WxH+X+Y, in(1,8) which "W" / "H" spec-
              ify the horizontal/vertical scale (percent) and "X" / "Y" locate
              the image centre (percent).  A scale of  0  displays  the  image
              with  tiling.  A scale of 1 displays the image without any scal-
              ing.  A scale of 2 to 9 specifies an integer number of images in(1,8)
              that  direction.  No image will be magnified beyond 10 times its
              original size.  The maximum permitted scale is  1000.   [default
              0x0+50+50]

       menu: file(1,n)[;tag]
              Read  in(1,8)  the specified menu(3x,n,n tk_menuSetFocus) file(1,n) (note the `.menu extension is
              optional) and also optionally specify a starting  tag  to  find.
              See  the  reference  documentation for details on the syntax for
              the menuBar.

              E) character is passed through.  It may contain escape values as
              described in(1,8) the entry on keysym following.

       keysym.sym: string(3,n)
              Associate string(3,n) with keysym sym (0xFF00 - 0xFFFF).  It may con-
              tain escape values (\a: bell, \b: backspace, \e, \E: escape, \n:
              newline, \r: return, \t: tab, \000:  octal  number)  or  control
              characters  (^?: delete, ^@: null, ^A ...) and may enclosed with
              double quotes so that it can start or end with whitespace.   The
              intervening  resource  name  keysym.  cannot  be  omitted.  This
              resource is only available when compiled with KEYSYM_RESOURCE.

THE SCROLLBAR
       Lines of text that scroll off the top of  the  rxvt(ouR XVT) [rxvt] (1,ouR XVT) [urxvtc] (1,ouR XVT) [urxvtd] (1,ouR XVT) [wterm] (1)  window  (resource:
       saveLines)  and  can  be  scrolled  back using the scrollbar or by key-
       strokes.  The normal rxvt(ouR XVT) [rxvt] (1,ouR XVT) [urxvtc] (1,ouR XVT) [urxvtd] (1,ouR XVT) [wterm] (1) scrollbar has arrows  and  its  behaviour  is
       fairly intuitive.  The xterm-scrollbar is without arrows and its behav-
       iour mimics that of xterm

       Scroll down with Button1 (xterm-scrollbar) or  Shift-Next.   Scroll  up
       with  Button3 (xterm-scrollbar) or Shift-Prior.  Continuous scroll with
       Button2.

MOUSE REPORTING
       To temporarily override mouse reporting, for either  the  scrollbar  or
       the  normal text selection/insertion, hold either the Shift or the Meta
       (Alt) key while performing the desired mouse action.

       If mouse reporting mode is active, the  normal  scrollbar  actions  are
       disabled  --  on the assumption that we are using a fullscreen applica-
       tion.  Instead, pressing Button1 and Button3 sends  ESC[6~  (Next)  and
       ESC[5~  (Prior),  respectively.  Similarly, clicking on the up and down
       arrows sends ESC[A (Up) and ESC[B (Down), respectively.

TEXT SELECTION AND INSERTION
       The behaviour of text selection and insertion mechanism is  similar  to
       xterm(1).


       Selection:
              Left  click  at  the beginning of the region, drag to the end of
              the region and release; Right click to extend the marked region;
              Left  double-click to select(2,7,2 select_tut) a word; Left triple-click to select(2,7,2 select_tut)
              the entire line.


       Insertion:
              Pressing and releasing the Middle mouse button (or Shift-Insert)
              in(1,8)  an  rxvt(ouR XVT) [rxvt] (1,ouR XVT) [urxvtc] (1,ouR XVT) [urxvtd] (1,ouR XVT) [wterm] (1)  window  causes  the  current  text selection to be
              inserted as if(3,n) it had been typed on the keyboard.

CHANGING FONTS
       You can change fonts on-the-fly, which is  to  say  cycle  through  the
       default  font  and  others  of various sizes, by using Shift-KP_Add and
       Shift-KP_Subtract.  Or,  alternatively  (if(3,n)  enabled)  with  Alt->  and
       Alt-<,  where  the  actual  key  can be selected using resources small-
       font_key/bigfont_key.

LOGIN STAMP
       rxvt(ouR XVT) [rxvt] (1,ouR XVT) [urxvtc] (1,ouR XVT) [urxvtd] (1,ouR XVT) [wterm] (1) tries to write(1,2) an entry into the utmp(5) file(1,n) so that  it  can  be
       seen  via  the  who(1) command, and can accept(2,8) messages.  To allow this
       feature, rxvt(ouR XVT) [rxvt] (1,ouR XVT) [urxvtc] (1,ouR XVT) [urxvtd] (1,ouR XVT) [wterm] (1) must be installed setuid root on some systems.

COLORS AND GRAPHICS
       If graphics support was enabled at compile-time, rxvt(ouR XVT) [rxvt] (1,ouR XVT) [urxvtc] (1,ouR XVT) [urxvtd] (1,ouR XVT) [wterm] (1)  can  be  queried
       with ANSI escape sequences and can address individual pixels instead of
       text characters.  Note the graphics support is  still  considered  beta
       code.

       In  addition to the default foreground and background colours, rxvt(ouR XVT) [rxvt] (1,ouR XVT) [urxvtc] (1,ouR XVT) [urxvtd] (1,ouR XVT) [wterm] (1) can
       display up to 16 colours (8 ANSI colours plus high-intensity bold/blink
       versions  of  the  same).   Here  is  a  list of the colours with their
       rgb.txt names.



       It is also possible to specify the colour values of  foreground,  back-
       ground,  cursorColor,  cursorColor2, colorBD, colorUL as a number 0-15,
       as  a  convenient  shorthand  to   reference   the   colour   name   of
       color0-color15.

       Note  that -rv ("reverseVideo: True") simulates reverse video by always
       swapping the foreground/background colours.  This  is  in(1,8)  contrast  to
       xterm(1)  where the colours are only swapped if(3,n) they have not otherwise
       been specified.  For example,


       rxvt(ouR XVT) [rxvt] (1,ouR XVT) [urxvtc] (1,ouR XVT) [urxvtd] (1,ouR XVT) [wterm] (1) -fg Black -bg White -rv
              would yield White on Black, while on  xterm(1)  it  would  yield
              Black on White.

ENVIRONMENT
       rxvt(ouR XVT) [rxvt] (1,ouR XVT) [urxvtc] (1,ouR XVT) [urxvtd] (1,ouR XVT) [wterm] (1) sets the environment variables TERM, COLORTERM and COLORFGBG.  The
       environment variable WINDOWID is set(7,n,1 builtins) to the X window id number  of  the
       rxvt(ouR XVT) [rxvt] (1,ouR XVT) [urxvtc] (1,ouR XVT) [urxvtd] (1,ouR XVT) [wterm] (1)  window and it also uses and sets the environment variable DISPLAY
       to specify which display terminal to use.  rxvt(ouR XVT) [rxvt] (1,ouR XVT) [urxvtc] (1,ouR XVT) [urxvtd] (1,ouR XVT) [wterm] (1)  uses  the  environment
       variables RXVTPATH and PATH to find XPM files.

FILES
       /etc/utmp
              System file(1,n) for login(1,3,5) records.

       /usr/lib/X11/rgb.txt
              Color names.

       escape sequences and menuBar syntax, etc.


BUGS
       Check the BUGS file(1,n) for an up-to-date list.

       Cursor change support is not yet implemented.

       Click-and-drag doesnt work with X11 mouse report overriding.

       Graphics support is fairly crude.
