.TH "RXVT" "1" "26 MARCH 2003" "X Version 11" "X Tools" 
.SH "NAME" 
rxvt_(ouR_XVT) \- a VT102 emulator for the X window system
.PP 
.SH "SYNOPSIS" 
.PP 
\fBrxvt\fP [options] [\-e command [ args ]]
.PP 
.SH "DESCRIPTION" 
.PP 
\fBrxvt\fP, version \fB2\&.7\&.10\fP, is a colour vt102 terminal emulator
intended as an \fIxterm\fP(1) replacement for users who do not require
features such as Tektronix 4014 emulation and toolkit-style configurability\&.
As a result, \fBrxvt\fP uses much less swap space -- a significant
advantage on a machine serving many X sessions\&.
.PP 
.PP 
.SH "OPTIONS" 
.PP 
The \fBrxvt\fP options (mostly a subset of \fIxterm\fP's) are listed below\&.
In keeping with the smaller-is-better philosophy, options may be eliminated
or default values chosen at compile-time, so options and defaults listed
may not accurately reflect the version installed on your system\&.  
\(lqrxvt \-h\(rq gives a list of major compile-time options on the \fIOptions\fP line\&.
Option descriptions may be prefixed with which compile option each is
dependent upon\&.  e\&.g\&. \(lqCompile \fIXIM\fP:\(rq requires \fIXIM\fP on the \fIOptions\fP
line\&.  Note: \(lqrxvt \-help\(rq gives a list of all command-line options compiled
into your version\&.
.PP 
Note that \fBrxvt\fP 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: \(lqrxvt \-\-loginShell \-\-color1 Orange\(rq\&.
.PP 
Also note that if you do not explicitly specify a font (\fB-fn\fP and \fB-fm\fP)
or a multichar encoding method (\fB-km\fP), rxvt will select a font for the
preferable encoding according to your locale\&.  Supported encodings are:
\fBISO-8859-\fPn (n=\fB1\fP\&.\&.\&.\fB15\fP), \fBKOI8-R\fP, \fBKOI8-U\fP, \fBEUC-JP\fP,
\fBShift_JIS\fP, \fBEUC-KR\fP, \fBEUC-CN\fP (aka \fBGB\fP), and \fBBig5\fP\&.

.SH "RESOURCES (available also as long-options)" 
.PP 
Note: \(lqrxvt \-\-help\(rq gives a list of all resources (long options) compiled
into your version\&.
If compiled with internal Xresources support (i\&.e\&. \fBrxvt \-h\fP lists 
\fB\&.Xdefaults\fP) then \fBrxvt\fP accepts application defaults set in
XAPPLOADDIR/Rxvt (compile-time defined: usually
\fB/usr/lib/X11/app-defaults/Rxvt\fP) and resources set in \fB~/\&.Xdefaults\fP,
or \fB~/\&.Xresources\fP if \fB~/\&.Xdefaults\fP does not exist\&.  Note that when
reading X resources, \fBrxvt\fP recognizes two class names: \fBXTerm\fP and
\fBRxvt\fP\&.  The class name \fBXTerm\fP allows resources common to both
\fBrxvt\fP and \fIxterm\fP to be easily configured, while the class name
\fBRxvt\fP allows resources unique to \fBrxvt\fP, notably colours and
key-handling, to be shared between different \fBrxvt\fP configurations\&. 
If no resources are specified, suitable defaults will be used\&. 
Command-line arguments can be used to override resource settings\&.  The
following resources are allowed:
.PP 
.IP "\fBgeometry:\fP \fIgeom\fP" 
Create the window with the specified X window geometry [default
80x24];
option \fB-geometry\fP\&.
.IP "\fBbackground:\fP \fIcolour\fP" 
Use the specified colour as the window's background colour [default
White];
option \fB-bg\fP\&.
.IP "\fBforeground:\fP \fIcolour\fP" 
Use the specified colour as the window's foreground colour [default
Black];
option \fB-fg\fP\&.
.IP "\fBcolor\fP\fIn\fP\fB:\fP \fIcolour\fP" 
Use the specified colour for the colour value \fIn\fP, where 0-7
corresponds 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
\fBCOLORS AND GRAPHICS\fP section\&.
.IP "\fBcolorBD:\fP \fIcolour\fP" 
Use the specified colour to display bold characters when the
foreground colour is the default\&.
.IP "\fBcolorUL:\fP \fIcolour\fP" 
Use the specified colour to display underlined characters when the
foreground colour is the default\&.
.IP "\fBcolorRV:\fP \fIcolour\fP" 
Use the specified colour as the background for reverse video
characters\&.
.IP "\fBcursorColor:\fP \fIcolour\fP"

characters (^?: delete, ^@: null, ^A \&.\&.\&.) and may enclosed with
double quotes so that it can start or end with whitespace\&.  The
intervening resource name \fBkeysym\&.\fP cannot be omitted\&.  This
resource is only available when compiled with KEYSYM_RESOURCE\&.
.SH "THE SCROLLBAR" 
.PP 
Lines of text that scroll off the top of the \fBrxvt\fP window (resource:
\fBsaveLines\fP) and can be scrolled back using the scrollbar or by keystrokes\&. 
The normal \fBrxvt\fP scrollbar has arrows and its behaviour is fairly
intuitive\&.  The \fBxterm-scrollbar\fP is without arrows and its behaviour
mimics that of \fIxterm\fP
.PP 
Scroll down with \fBButton1\fP (\fBxterm-scrollbar\fP) or \fBShift-Next\fP\&.
Scroll up with \fBButton3\fP (\fBxterm-scrollbar\fP) or \fBShift-Prior\fP\&.
Continuous scroll with \fBButton2\fP\&.
.SH "MOUSE REPORTING" 
.PP 
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\&.
.PP 
If mouse reporting mode is active, the normal scrollbar actions are disabled
-- on the assumption that we are using a fullscreen application\&.
Instead, pressing Button1 and Button3 sends
\fBESC[6~\fP (Next) and \fBESC[5~\fP (Prior), respectively\&.
Similarly, clicking on the up and down arrows sends \fBESC[A\fP (Up) and
\fBESC[B\fP (Down), respectively\&.
.SH "TEXT SELECTION AND INSERTION" 
.PP 
The behaviour of text selection and insertion mechanism is similar to
\fIxterm\fP(1)\&.
.PP 
.IP "\fBSelection\fP:" 
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\&.
.IP 
.IP "\fBInsertion\fP:" 
Pressing and releasing the Middle mouse button (or \fBShift-Insert\fP)
in an \fBrxvt\fP window causes the current text selection to be inserted
as if it had been typed on the keyboard\&.
.SH "CHANGING FONTS" 
.PP 
You can change fonts on-the-fly, which is to say cycle through the default
font and others of various sizes, by using \fBShift-KP_Add\fP and
\fBShift-KP_Subtract\fP\&.  Or, alternatively (if enabled) with
\fBAlt->\fP and \fBAlt-<\fP, where the actual key
can be selected using resources \fBsmallfont_key\fP/\fBbigfont_key\fP\&.
.SH "LOGIN STAMP" 
.PP 
\fBrxvt\fP tries to write an entry into the \fIutmp\fP(5) file so that it can be
seen via the \fIwho(1)\fP command, and can accept messages\&.  To allow this
feature, \fBrxvt\fP must be installed setuid root on some systems\&.
.SH "COLORS AND GRAPHICS" 
.PP 
If graphics support was enabled at compile-time, \fBrxvt\fP 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\&.
.PP 
In addition to the default foreground and background colours, \fBrxvt\fP
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 \fBrgb\&.txt\fP names\&.

\fBforeground\fP `\  `\ = Black 
\fBbackground\fP `\  `\ = White 
.TE 
.PP 
It is also possible to specify the colour values of \fBforeground\fP,
\fBbackground\fP, \fBcursorColor\fP, \fBcursorColor2\fP, \fBcolorBD\fP, \fBcolorUL\fP
as a number 0-15, as a convenient shorthand to reference the colour name of
color0-color15\&.
.PP 
Note that \fB-rv\fP (\fB\(lqreverseVideo: True\(rq\fP) simulates reverse video by
always swapping the foreground/background colours\&.  This is in contrast to
\fIxterm\fP(1) where the colours are only swapped if they have not otherwise been
specified\&.
For example,
.PP 
.IP "\fBrxvt -fg Black -bg White -rv\fP" 
would yield White on Black, while on \fIxterm\fP(1) it would yield
Black on White\&.
.SH "ENVIRONMENT" 
.PP 
\fBrxvt\fP sets the environment variables \fBTERM\fP, \fBCOLORTERM\fP and
\fBCOLORFGBG\fP\&.  The environment variable \fBWINDOWID\fP is set to the X window
id number of the \fBrxvt\fP window and it also uses and sets the environment
variable \fBDISPLAY\fP to specify which display terminal to use\&.  \fBrxvt\fP uses
the environment variables \fBRXVTPATH\fP and \fBPATH\fP to find XPM files\&.
.SH "FILES"
