       Term::Title - Portable API to set the terminal titlebar


       version 0.09


           use Term::Title 'set_titlebar', 'set_tab_title';

           set_titlebar("This goes into the title");

           set_titlebar("Title", "And also print this to the terminal");

           set_tab_title("This goes into the tab title");

           set_tab_title("Tab Title", "And also print this to the terminal");


       Term::Title provides an abstraction for setting the titlebar or the tab title across
       different types of terminals.  For *nix terminals, it prints the appropriate escape
       sequences to set the terminal or tab title based on the value of $ENV{TERM}.  On Windows,
       it uses Win32::Console to set the title directly.

       Currently, changing the titlebar is supported in these terminals:

       ·   xterm

       ·   rxvt

       ·   screen


       ·   Win32 console

       The terminals that support changing the tab title include:



           set_titlebar( $title, @optional_text );

       Sets the titlebar to $title or clears the titlebar if $title is undefined.

       On terminals that require printing escape codes to the terminal, a newline character is
       also printed to the terminal.  If  @optional_text  is given, it will be printed to the
       terminal prior to the newline.  Thus, to keep terminal output cleaner, use
       "set_titlebar()" in place of a "print()" statement to set the titlebar and print at the
       same time.

       If the terminal is not supported, set_titlebar silently continues, printing @optional_text
       if any.

           set_tab_title( $title, @optional_text );

       Has the exact same semantics as the "set_titlebar" but changes the tab title.
