       bterm - framebuffer terminal emulator

       bterm -f font.bgf [-l locale] [program]

       bterm  is  a  terminal emulator for the Linux framebuffer.  It supports
       multibyte locales and wide characters, in addition  to  basic  terminal
       features such as cursor positioning.

       -f font.bgf
	      Specify  the  font.  BGF fonts are produced by bdftobogl(1) from
	      standard BDF font files.

       -l locale
	      Specify a locale for bterm and processes	run  within  it.   The
	      locale  may also be specified normally in the environment.  If a
	      locale, especially one with a different character set  than  the
	      current locale, will be used inside of bterm, it should be spec‐
	      ified on the command line.

       The following exit values are returned:

       0      Successful completion.

       1-125  Exit code from executed program

       127    Failed to exec program

       >=128  Program terminated by signal.

       On Debian systems, one appropriate BDF font can be found in the bf-utf-
       source package.
