terms − database of blessed terminals for xtermset.


The terms database is a file whichs tells xtermset which terminals are controllable.

terms is usually located in /usr/share/xtermset and it is an ASCII file. A blessed terminal is described in one line.

There are several modifiers which affect the way how xtermset interprets the TERM variable.

ˆ<term-name> tells xtermset that $TERM should begin with <term-name>

<term-name>$ tells xtermset that $TERM should begin with <term-name>

<term-name> tells xtermset that $TERM must contain <term-name>

You can combine the ˆ and the $ options to create an exact match for $TERM
