NAME

       koi8rxterm - X terminal emulator for KOI8-R environments

SYNOPSIS

       koi8rxterm [ xterm-options ]

DESCRIPTION

       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-options.

       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 environments.

ENVIRONMENT

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

AUTHOR

       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.
