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.
