NAME
       Alacritty - A fast, cross-platform, OpenGL terminal emulator

SYNOPSIS
       alacritty [FLAGS] [OPTIONS]

DESCRIPTION
       Alacritty is a modern terminal emulator that comes with sensible
       defaults, but allows for extensive configuration. By integrating with
       other applications, rather than reimplementing their functionality, it
       manages to provide a flexible set of features with high performance.

FLAGS
       -h, --help
              Prints help information

       --hold Remain open after child process exits

       --print-events
              Print all events to stdout

       -q     Reduces the level of verbosity (the min level is -qq)

       --ref-test
              Generates ref test

       -v     Increases the level of verbosity (the max level is -vvv)

       -V, --version
              Prints version information

OPTIONS
       --class <instance> | <instance>,<general>
              Defines the window class hint on Linux [default:
              Alacritty,Alacritty]

              On Wayland the instance class sets the `app_id`, while the general
              class is ignored.

       -e, --command <command>...
              Command and args to execute (must be last argument)

       --config-file <config-file>
              Specify alternative configuration file

              Alacritty looks for the configuration file at the following paths:
                  1. $XDG_CONFIG_HOME/alacritty/alacritty.yml
                  2. $XDG_CONFIG_HOME/alacritty.yml
                  3. $HOME/.config/alacritty/alacritty.yml
                  4. $HOME/.alacritty.yml

              On Windows, the configuration file is located at
              %APPDATA%\alacritty\alacritty.yml.

       --embed <parent>
              Defines the X11 window ID (as a decimal integer) to embed
              Alacritty within

       -o, --option <option>...
              Override configuration file options [example: cursor.style=Beam]

       -t, --title <title>
              Defines the window title [default: Alacritty]

       --working-directory <working-directory>
              Start the shell in the specified working directory
