koi8rxterm - X terminal emulator for KOI8-R environments


   koi8rxterm [ xterm-options ]


   koi8rxterm  is  a  wrapper around the xterm(1) program that invokes the
   latter program  with  the  "KOI8RXTerm"  X  resource  class  set.   All
   arguments  to  koi8rxterm  are  passed to xterm without processing; the
   -class and -k8 options should not be specified because they are used by
   the  wrapper.  See the xterm manual page for more information on xterm-

   The environment's locale settings (see "ENVIRONMENT" below) are used to
   discern  the  locale's  character  set.   If  no  current locale can be
   determined, the locale "ru_RU.KOI8-R" (the Russian language as used  in
   the  territory  of  Russia,  with the KOI8-R character set) is assumed.
   The locale(1) utility is used to determine whether the system  supports
   the  selected  locale.   If  it  does not, koi8rxterm will exit with an
   error and report the output of locale.

   Note: koi8rxterm may produce unexpected results if the  current  locale
   is  set to one in which the KOI8-R character encoding is not supported,
   or if fonts using that encoding  are  not  available.   In  the  Debian
   system,   the   "xfonts-cyrillic"   package  provides  the  fonts  that
   koi8rxterm uses by default.  To change the fonts koi8rxterm uses,  edit
   the /etc/X11/app-defaults/KOI8RXTerm file.

   A   similar   wrapper,   uxterm(1),  is  available  for  Unicode  UTF-8


          The  values  of  these  variables  are  checked,  in  order,  to
          determine the character set used by the current locale.


   koi8rxterm was written by Branden Robinson and is very heavily based on
   uxterm,  by  Thomas  Dickey.   The  assistance  of  Jurij  Smakov   was
   invaluable in sanity-checking its operation.
