NAME
       aterm (Afterstep XVT) - a VT102 emulator for the X window system

SYNOPSIS
       aterm [options] [-e command [ args ]]

DESCRIPTION
       aterm,  version	1.0.0,	is  a colour vt102 terminal emulator, based on
       rxvt 2.4.8  with	 Alfredo  Kojima´s  additions  of  fast	 transparency,
       intended	 as  an xterm(1) replacement for users who do not require fea‐
       tures such as Tektronix 4014 emulation and toolkit-style	 configurabil‐
       ity.   As  a  result,  aterm uses much less swap space -- a significant
       advantage on a machine serving many X sessions.

       It was created with AfterStep Window Manger users in mind, but  is  not
       tied to any libraries, and can be used anywhere.

OPTIONS
       The  aterm  options  (mostly a subset of xterm´s) 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 installed on your system.

       Note that aterm 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: `aterm --loginShell --color1 Orange´.

       -help, --help
	      Print out a message describing available options.

       -version, --version
	      Print out a version with/without list of available options.

       -display displayname
	      Attempt to open a window	on  the	 named	X  display  (-d	 still
	      respected).   In	the absence of this option, the display speci‐
	      fied by the DISPLAY environment variable is used.

       -geometry geom
	      Window geometry (-g still respected); resource geometry.

       -rv|+rv
	      Turn on/off simulated reverse video; resource reverseVideo.

       -bg colour
	      Window background colour; resource background.

       -fg colour
	      Window foreground colour; resource foreground.

       -pixmap: file[;geom]
	      Specify image file for the background and also optionally	 spec‐
	      ify geometry of the image to be cut out of original image, to be
	      used as background, with a geometry string.  Note you  may  need
	      to  add  quotes to avoid special shell interpretation of the `;´
	      in the command-line; resource backgroundPixmap.

       -mst: name
	      Specify the name of the Afterstep MyStyle to be used as the base
	      of  aterm´s  look.  ForeColor,  BackColor, Font, BackPixmap (all
	      texture options) will be used from  MyStyle  definition,	unless
	      some  other  command  line option is specifyed for the same set‐
	      ting.  For example -fn  will  override  MyStyle  Font.  This  is
	      available	 only  if  used	 with AfterStep 1.9.28 or later and if
	      compiled with AfterStep libraries support (  --enable-afterstep-
	      lib).  resource MyStyle.

       -tr|+tr
	      Turn  on/off  pseudo  transparency mode. In this mode aterm will
	      use part of root background as it´s  own	background,  emulating
	      see-through effect; resource transparent.

       -trsb|+trsb
	      Turn on/off pseudo transparent scrollbar. Works the same as -tr;
	      resource transpscrollbar.

       -tint color
	      Turn on pseudo transparency background tinting. Tinting  can  be
	      done fast and slow way. In fast way it will be done by combining
	      of background color with tinting color using  logical  function.
	      This  function  defaults	to  AND,  and  it can be changed using
	      -tinttype option - see below.   In  general  solid  colors  like
	      Blue, Red, Green, Cyan, Magenta, Yellow are good, but you should
	      experiment with it for each background you have.	 True  tinting
	      is  more memory and CPU hungry - tinted copy of background image
	      will be created every time you move/resize window. It alows  for
	      more  smooth  tinting thou.  You need to build it with --enable-
	      transparency=yes or --enable-background-imageyes option,	to  be
	      able to use this feature.	 resource tinting.

       -sh amount
	      This  option  allows  for darkening/lightening of the background
	      image amount is the %value of the desired brightness, where  100
	      is  the  original.   if  amount is less then 100 - image will be
	      darkened.	 if amount is less then 0 or more  then	 100  -	 image
	      will  be	lightened.   Lightening can cause some strange looking
	      effects if applied on bright image.  This option causes aterm to
	      create  shaded/lightened copy of the background - it´s more mem‐
	      ory cosuming as the result. It does not  make  much  difference,
	      though,	if   applied  on  non  transparent  background	image.
	      resource shading.

       -fade amount
	      This option allows for darkening/lightening of colors when aterm
	      is  loosing  focus.  amount is the %value of the desired bright‐
	      ness, where 100 is the original.	if amount is less then	100  -
	      colors  will be darkened.	 if amount is less then 0 or more then
	      100 - colors will	 be  lightened.	  Lightening  can  cause  some
	      strange  looking	effects	 if  applied  on  bright colors.  This
	      option causes aterm to use more colors, as the result it is dis‐
	      abled  by	 default.  Use	--enable-fading	 ./configure option to
	      enable it.  resource fading.

       -bgtype type
	      Specify type of the transformation to be performed on background
	      image.  Possible	types are : tile - plain vanilla tiling of the
	      image.  scale - original image will be  scaled  to  the  aterm´s
	      size,  every  time  you  resize window.  scalev - original image
	      will be scaled to the aterm´s height only, every time you resize
	      window.	scaleh	- original image will be scaled to the aterm´s
	      width only, every time you resize	 window.   center  -  original
	      image  will  be centered in aterm´s window.  notile - background
	      color will be padded to image´s right/bottom to make it the same
	      size as window is.  notileh - background color will be padded to
	      image´s right to make it the same width as window is.  notilev -
	      background color will be padded to image´s bottom to make it the
	      same height as window is.	      cut - aterm background  will  be
	      cut  out	of the source image, as if this source image was tiled
	      across the root window. The  portion  of	the  image  that  lies
	      underneath  of  window  will  be	used.	   If AfterStep Pager,
	      asetroot or Esetroot where used to set the root image, then this
	      option can be used in conjunction with -tr option.  In this case
	      it will do mentioned transformations to the  root	 pixmap.   and
	      use it as aterm´s background.  resource backgroundType.

       -txttype type
	      Allows  you to specify logical function to be used when display‐
	      ing text. That will cause aterm to logically combine  text  with
	      background  pixels.  That only works with transparent background
	      and background image. Possible values  are  :  and,  andReverse,
	      andInverted,  xor,  or,  nor,  invert, equiv, invert, orReverse,
	      orInverted, nand; resource textType.

       -tinttype type
	      Allows you to specify logical function to be used	 when  tinting
	      transparent  background. That will cause aterm to logically com‐
	      bine text with background pixels. NOTE:  If  shading  option  is
	      used,  or	 background image is specifyed - true type will always
	      be used.	That works with bpth transparent background and	 back‐
	      ground image.  Possible values are :

	      Fast  tinting  options  : and, andReverse, andInverted, xor, or,
	      nor, invert, equiv, invert, orReverse, orInverted, nand,

	      Slow tinting: true - will do "true" tinting -  that  means  that

	      the  termcap(5)  database	 and  should have li# and co# entries;
	      resource termName.

       -e command [arguments]
	      Run the command with its command-line  arguments	in  the	 aterm

RESOURCES (available also as long-options)
       aterm accepts application defaults set in  XAPPLOADDIR/aterm  (compile-
       time  defined:  usually /etc/X11/Xresources/aterm) and resources set in
       ~/.Xdefaults or ~/.Xresources.  Note that  when	reading	 X  resources,
       aterm  recognizes  two  class  names:  XTerm and Aterm.	The class name
       XTerm allows resources common to both aterm and xterm to be easily con‐
       figured,	 while	the class name Aterm allows resources unique to aterm,
       notably colours and key-handling, to be shared between different	 aterm
       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  window´s  background	colour
	      [default White]; option -bg.

       foreground: colour
	      Use  the	specified  colour  as  the  window´s 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 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.

       cursorColor: colour
	      Use the specified colour for the cursor.	The default is to  use
	      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 COLORS AND GRAPHICS section.

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

       troughColor: colour
	      Use  the	specified  colour  for	the  scrollbar´s  trough  area
	      [default #969696].

       backgroundPixmap: file[;geom]
	      Use the specified image file, and cut the area defined by geome‐
	      try string out of it.

       MyStyle: name
	      Specify the name of the Afterstep MyStyle to be used as the base
	      of aterm´s look. ForeColor,  BackColor,  Font,  BackPixmap  (all
	      texture  options)	 will  be used from MyStyle definition, unless
	      some other command line option is specifyed for  the  same  set‐
	      ting.   For  example  resource  font will override MyStyle Font.
	      This is available only if used with AfterStep  1.9.28  or	 later
	      and  if  compiled	 with  AfterStep libraries support ( --enable-
	      afterstep-lib).

       transparent
	      Turn on/off pseudo transparency mode. In this  mode  aterm  will
	      use  part	 of  root background as it´s own background, emulating
	      see-through effect;

       tinting: color
	      Turn on pseudo transparency background tinting. Tinting  can  be
	      done fast and slow way. In fast way it will be done by combining
	      of background color with tinting color using  logical  function.
	      This  function  defaults	to  AND,  and  it can be changed using
	      -tinttype option - see below.   In  general  solid  colors  like
	      Blue, Red, Green, Cyan, Magenta, Yellow are good, but you should
	      experiment with it for each background you have.	 True  tinting
	      is  more memory and CPU hungry - tinted copy of background image
	      will be created every time you move/resize window. It alows  for
	      more  smooth  tinting thou.  You need to build it with --enable-
	      transparency=yes or --enable-background-image=yes option, to  be
	      able to use this feature.

       -shading: amount
	      This  option  allows  for darkening/lightening of the background
	      image amount is the %value of the desired brightness, where  100
	      is  the  original.   if  amount is less then 100 - image will be
	      darkened.	 if amount is less then 0 or more  then	 100  -	 image
	      will  be	lightened.   Lightening can cause some strange looking
	      effects if applied on bright image.  This option causes aterm to
	      create  shaded/lightened copy of the background - it´s more mem‐
	      ory cosuming as the result. It does not  make  much  difference,
	      though, if applied on non transparent background image.

       backgroundType: type
	      Specify type of the transformation to be performed on background
	      image. Possible types are : tile - plain vanilla tiling  of  the
	      image.   scale  -	 original  image will be scaled to the aterm´s
	      size, every time you resize window.   scalev  -  original	 image
	      will be scaled to the aterm´s height only, every time you resize
	      window.  scaleh - original image will be scaled to  the  aterm´s
	      width  only,  every  time	 you resize window.  center - original
	      image will be centered in aterm´s window.	 notile	 -  background
	      color will be padded to image´s right/bottom to make it the same
	      size as window is.  notileh - background color will be padded to
	      image´s right to make it the same width as window is.  notilev -
	      background color will be padded to image´s bottom to make it the
	      same  height  as window is.	cut - aterm background will be
	      cut out of the source image, as if this source image  was	 tiled
	      across  the  root	 window.  The  portion	of the image that lies
	      underneath of window will be  used.	 If  AfterStep	Pager,
	      asetroot or Esetroot where used to set the root image, then this
	      option can be used in conjunction with -tr option.  In this case
	      it  will	do  mentioned transformations to the root pixmap.  and
	      use it as aterm´s background.

       textType: type
	      Allows you to specify logical function to be used when  display‐
	      ing  text.  That will cause aterm to logically combine text with
	      background pixels. That only works with  transparent  background
	      and  background  image.  Possible	 values are : and, andReverse,
	      andInverted, xor, or, nor,  invert,  equiv,  invert,  orReverse,
	      orInverted, nand.

       tintingType type
	      Allows  you  to specify logical function to be used when tinting
	      transparent background. That will cause aterm to logically  com‐
	      bine  text  with	background  pixels. NOTE: If shading option is
	      used, or background image is specifyed - true type  will	always
	      be  used.	 That works with bpth transparent background and back‐
	      ground image.  Possible values are :

	      Fast tinting options : and, andReverse,  andInverted,  xor,  or,
	      nor, invert, equiv, invert, orReverse, orInverted, nand,

	      Slow  tinting:  true  - will do "true" tinting - that means that
	      background pixel´s RGB components will be decreased  proportion‐
	      aly to the RGB components of specified tinting color.

       menu: file[;tag]
	      Read  in	the specified menu file (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.

       path: path
	      Specify the colon-delimited search path for finding  files  (XPM
	      and  menus),  in addition to the paths specified by the RXVTPATH
	      and PATH environment variables.

       font: fontname
	      Select the main text font used [default 7x14]; option -fn.

       fontn: fontname
	      Specify the alternative font n.  The default font values:

		     font1:	6x10
		     font2:	6x13
		     font3:	8x13
		     font4:	9x15

       boldFont: fontname
	      Specify the name of the bold font to use if colorBD has not been
	      specified	 and  it is not possible to map the default foreground
	      colour to colour 8-15 [default NONE].  This  font	 must  be  the
	      same height and width as the normal font; option -fb.

       mfont: fontname
	      Select the main multiple-character text font used [default k14];
	      option -fk.

       mfontn: fontname
	      Specify the alternative multiple-character font n.  If  compiled
	      for  multiple-character  fonts, the Roman and multiple-character
	      font sizes should match.

       multichar_encoding: mode
	      Set the encoding mode to be used when multicharacter encoding is
	      received;	 eucj:	EUC  Japanese  encoding	 [default  for Kanji].

	      The string to send when the backspace key is pressed.  If set to
	      DEC  or  unset  it  will	send Delete (code 127) or, if shifted,
	      Backspace (code 8) - which can be reversed with the  appropriate
	      DEC private mode escape sequence.

       deletekey: string
	      The  string  to  send when the delete key (not the keypad delete
	      key) is pressed.	If unset it will send the sequence  tradition‐
	      ally associated with the Execute key.

       cutchars: string
	      The  characters  used as delimiters for double-click word selec‐

	      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  aterm  window  (resource:
       saveLines)  and	can  be	 scrolled  back using the scrollbar or by key‐
       strokes.	 The normal aterm scrollbar has arrows and  its	 behaviour  is
       fairly intuitive.  The xterm-scrollbar is without arrows and its behav‐
       iour mimics that of xterm. When build with  --enable-next-scroll	 aterm
       will  have  NeXT-ish scrollbars. They look nicer and easier in use, but
       have slightly larger size. Their look and size can be tweaked  at  com‐
       pile time by modifying parameters in rxvt.h.

       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 a word; Left triple-click to	select
	      the entire line.

       Insertion:
	      Pressing and releasing the Middle mouse button (or Shift-Insert)
	      in an aterm window causes	 the  current  text  selection	to  be
	      inserted as if 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  enabled)  with  Alt-> and
       Alt-<, where the actual key can	be  selected  using  resources	small‐
       font_key/bigfont_key.

LOGIN STAMP
       aterm  tries  to write an entry into the utmp(5) file so that it can be
       seen via the who(1) command, and can accept messages.   To  allow  this
       feature, aterm must be installed setuid root on some systems.

COLORS AND GRAPHICS
       If  graphics  support was enabled at compile-time, aterm 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, aterm 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.

       color0	      (black)		   = Black
       color1	      (red)		   = Red3
       color2	      (green)		   = Green3
       color3	      (yellow)		   = Yellow3
       color4	      (blue)		   = Blue3
       color5	      (magenta)		   = Magenta3
       color6	      (cyan)		   = Cyan3
       color7	      (white)		   = AntiqueWhite
       color8	      (bright black)	   = Grey25
       color9	      (bright red)	   = Red
       color10	      (bright green)	   = Green
       color11	      (bright yellow)	   = Yellow
       color12	      (bright blue)	   = Blue
       color13	      (bright magenta)	   = Magenta
       color14	      (bright cyan)	   = Cyan
       color15	      (bright white)	   = White
       foreground			   = Black
       background			   = White

       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 contrast to
       xterm(1) where the colours are only swapped if they have not  otherwise
       been specified.	For example,

       aterm -fg Black -bg White -rv
	      would  yield  White  on  Black, while on xterm(1) it would yield
	      Black on White.

ENVIRONMENT
       aterm sets the environment variables  TERM,  COLORTERM  and  COLORFGBG.
       The  environment	 variable WINDOWID is set to the X window id number of
       the aterm window and it also uses and  sets  the	 environment  variable
       DISPLAY to specify which display terminal to use.  aterm uses the envi‐
       ronment variables ATERMPATH, then RXVTPATH and finally PATH to find XPM
       files.

FILES
       /etc/utmp
	      System file for login records.

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

SEE ALSO
       xterm(1), sh(1), resize(1), X(1), pty(4), tty(4), utmp(5)

       Cursor change support is not yet implemented.

       Click-and-drag doesn´t work with X11 mouse report overriding.

       Graphics support is fairly crude.
