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.
