DESCRIPTION

       GNOME  Terminal  is  a  terminal  emulation  application  that  you can use to perform the
       following actions:

       Access a UNIX shell in the GNOME environment.

       A shell is a program that interprets and executes the commands that you type at a  command
       line  prompt. When you start GNOME Terminal, the application starts the default shell that
       is specified in your system account. You can switch to a different shell at any time.

       Run any application that is designed to run on VT102, VT220, and xterm terminals.

       GNOME Terminal emulates the xterm program developed by the  X  Consortium.  In  turn,  the
       xterm  program  emulates  the  DEC  VT102  terminal and also supports the DEC VT220 escape
       sequences. An escape sequence  is  a  series  of  characters  that  starts  with  the  Esc
       character.

       GNOME  Terminal accepts all of the escape sequences that the VT102 and VT220 terminals use
       for functions such as positioning the cursor and clearing the screen.
