uxterm - X terminal emulator for Unicode (UTF-8) environments


   uxterm [ xterm-options ]


   uxterm is a wrapper around the xterm(1) program that invokes the latter
   program with the "UXTerm" X  resource  class  set.   All  arguments  to
   uxterm  are  passed  to  xterm  without  processing; the -class and -u8
   options should not be specified because they are used by  the  wrapper.
   See the xterm manual page for more information on xterm-options.

   The environment's locale settings (see "ENVIRONMENT" below) are used to
   discern the locale's character  set.   If  no  current  locale  can  be
   determined,  the  locale  "en_US"  (the English language as used in the
   territory of the United States) is assumed.  The locale(1)  utility  is
   used  to determine whether the system supports the selected locale.  If
   it does not, uxterm will exit with an error and report  the  output  of

   Note:  uxterm  may  produce unexpected results if the current locale is
   set to one in which the UTF-8 character encoding is not  supported,  or
   if fonts using the ISO 10646-1 character set are not available.  In the
   Debian system, the "xfonts-base" package provides the fonts that uxterm
   uses   by   default.   To  change  the  fonts  uxterm  uses,  edit  the
   /etc/X11/app-defaults/UXTerm file.

   A similar wrapper, koi8rxterm(1), is available for KOI8-R environments.


          The  values  of  these  variables  are  checked,  in  order,  to
          determine the character set used by the current locale.
