NAME
       xiterm+thai — VT102 emulator for the X window system with Thai support

SYNOPSIS
       xiterm+thai [options] [-e command [args]]

DESCRIPTION
       xiterm+thai — version 1.10 — is a color vt102 terminal emulator intended
       as an xterm(1) replacement for users who do not require features such as
       Tektronix 4014 emulation and toolkit-style configurability.  As a result,
       xiterm+thai uses much less swap space — a significant advantage on a
       machine serving many X sessions.

OPTIONS
       The xiterm+thai options (mostly a subset of xterm'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.

       Note that xiterm+thai 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: `xiterm+thai --loginShell --color1 Orange'.

              window.  If this option is used, it must be the last on the
              command-line.  If there is no -e option then the default is to run
              the program specified by the SHELL environment variable or,
              failing that, sh(1).

RESOURCES (available also as long-options)
       xiterm+thai accepts application defaults set in XAPPLOADDIR/Xiterm
       (compile-time defined: usually /usr/lib/X11/app-defaults/Xiterm) and
       resources set in ~/.Xdefaults or ~/.Xresources.  Note that when reading X
       resources, xiterm+thai recognizes two class names: XTerm and Xiterm.  The
       class name XTerm allows resources common to both xiterm+thai and xterm to
       be easily configured, while the class name Xiterm allows resources unique
       to xiterm+thai, notably colors and key-handling, to be shared between
       different xiterm+thai 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:

       geometry: geom
              Create the window with the specified X window geometry [default
              80x24]; option -geometry.

       background: color
              Use the specified color as the window's background color [default
              White]; option -bg.

       foreground: color
              Use the specified color as the window's foreground color [default
              Black]; option -fg.

       colorn: color
              Use the specified color for the color value n, where 0-7
              corresponds to low-intensity (normal) colors and 8-15 corresponds
              to high-intensity (bold = bright foreground, blink = bright
              background) colors.  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 color names used are listed in the COLORS AND GRAPHICS
              section.

       colorBD: color
              Use the specified color to display bold characters when the
              foreground color is the default.

       colorUL: color
              Use the specified color to display underlined characters when the
              foreground color is the default.

       cursorColor: color
              Use the specified color for the cursor.  The default is to use the
              foreground color; option -cr.

       cursorColor2: color
              Use the specified color for the color of the cursor text.  For
              this to take effect, cursorColor must also be specified.  The
              default is to use the background color.

       cursorColorThai: color
              Use the specified color for the cursor while in Thai mode.  The
              default is to use the foreground color.

       reverseVideo: boolean
              True: simulate reverse video by foreground and background colors;
              option -rv, False: regular screen colors [default]; option +rv.
              See note in COLORS AND GRAPHICS section.

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

       backgroundPixmap: file[;geom]
              Use the specified XPM file (note the `.xpm' extension is optional)
              for the background and also optionally specify its scaling with a
              geometry string WxH+X+Y, in which W/H specify the
              horizontal/vertical scale (percent) and X/Y locate the image
              centre (percent).  A scale of 0 displays the image with tiling.  A
              scale of 1 displays the image without any scaling.  A scale of 2
              to 9 specifies the number of images in that direction.  No image
              will be magnified beyond 10 times its original size.  The maximum
              permitted scale is 1000.  [default 100x100+50+50]

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

                   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
              color to color 8-15 [default NONE].  This font must be the same
              height and width as the normal font; option -fb.

       kfont: fontname
              Select the main Kanji text font used [default k14]; option -fk.

       kfontn: fontname

       keysym.sym: string
              Associate string with keysym sym (0xFF00 - 0xFFFF).  It may
              contain escape values (\a: bell, \b: backspace, \e, \E: escape,
              \n: 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 FAKE_RESOURCES.

THE SCROLLBAR
       Lines of text that scroll off the top of the xiterm+thai window
       (resource: saveLines) and can be scrolled back using the scrollbar or by
       keystrokes.  The normal xiterm+thai scrollbar has arrows and its
       behaviour is fairly intuitive.  The xterm-scrollbar is without arrows and
       its behaviour mimics that of xterm.

       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 application.
       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.

       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 xiterm+thai 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
       smallfont_key/bigfont_key.

LOGIN STAMP
       xiterm+thai tries to write an entry into the utmp file (usually
       /etc/utmp), so that it can be seen via the who(1) command, and can accept
       messages.  To allow this feature, xiterm+thai must be installed setuid
       root.

COLORS AND GRAPHICS
       If graphics support was enabled at compile-time, xiterm+thai 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 colors, xiterm+thai
       can display up to 16 colors (8 ANSI colors plus high-intensity bold/blink
       versions of the same).  Here is a list of the colors 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 color values of foreground,
       background, cursorColor, cursorColor2, colorBD, colorUL as a number 0-15,
       as a convenient shorthand to reference the color name of color0-color15.

       Note that -rv (reverseVideo: True) simulates reverse video by always
       swapping the foreground/background colors.  This is in contrast to xterm
       where the colors are only swapped if they have not otherwise been
       specified.  For example,

       xiterm+thai -fg Black -bg White -rv
              would yield White on Black, while on xterm it would yield Black on
              White.

ENVIRONMENT
       xiterm+thai sets the environment variables TERM, COLORTERM and COLORFGBG.
       The environment variable WINDOWID is set to the X window id number of the
       xiterm+thai window and it also uses and sets the environment variable
       DISPLAY to specify which display terminal to use.  xiterm+thai uses the
       environment variables RXVTPATH and PATH to find XPM files.

FILES
       /etc/utmp       System file for login records.

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

BUGS
       Selecting/pasting very large chunks of text is a problem.  But as is the
       case for xterm, it is a bug of the pseudo terminal driver of those
       systems.

       xiterm+thai 1.0 has the utmp support cleaned-up and supports utmpx (i.e.
       Solaris 2.x) but there are still some problems.  Please inform the
       maintainer of the correct solutions to utmp problems since he doesn't
       have root access of his own to test utmp.

       Cursor change support is not yet implemented.

       Click-and-drag doesn't work with X11 mouse report overriding.

       Graphics support is fairly crude.

       For some fonts there are problems with pixel-droppings being left behind
       when simulated bold (overstrike) precedes a space character.  Fixing
       xiterm+thai to handle these cases requires a lot of energy.  So the
       easiest course by far is to specify a boldFont, specify colorBD or, if it
       was compiled without NO_BRIGHTCOLOR, to select a foreground color that
       matches the pixel values of color 0-7 so that overstrike bold won't be
       used.

       Like xterm, xiterm+thai handles mono-space fonts only, and only TIS-620
       fonts are supported.
