    8 This is undoubtedly the most ugly program in the distribution.  It was one of
    9 the first "serious" programs ported, and still has a lot of historical baggage.
   10 Ideally, there would be a general tty widget and then vt102 and tek4014 
   11 subwidgets so that they could be used in other programs.  We are trying to

   17 There are two documents on xterm: the man page, xterm.man, which describes
   18 how to use it, and ctlseqs.ms, which describes the control sequences it
   19 understands.
