NAME

       resize - set TERMCAP and terminal settings to current xterm window size

SYNOPSIS

       resize [ -u | -c ] [ -s [ row col ] ]

DESCRIPTION

       Resize  prints  a  shell command for setting the TERM and TERMCAP environment variables to
       indicate the current size of xterm window from which the command is run.  For this  output
       to  take effect, resize must either be evaluated as part of the command line (usually done
       with a shell alias or function) or else redirected to a file which can then  be  read  in.
       From  the C shell (usually known as /bin/csh), the following alias could be defined in the
       user's .cshrc:

               %  alias rs 'set noglob; eval `resize`'

       After resizing the window, the user would type:

               %  rs

       Users of versions of the Bourne shell (usually known as /bin/sh) that don't  have  command
       functions  will  need to send the output to a temporary file and then read it back in with
       the “.” command:

               $  resize > /tmp/out
               $  . /tmp/out

OPTIONS

       The following options may be used with resize:

       -u      This option indicates that Bourne shell commands should be generated even  if  the
               user's current shell isn't /bin/sh.

       -c      This option indicates that C shell commands should be generated even if the user's
               current shell isn't /bin/csh.

       -s [rows columns]
               This option indicates that Sun console escape sequences will be  used  instead  of
               the  VT100-style  xterm  escape codes.  If rows and columns are given, resize will
               ask the xterm to resize  itself.   However,  the  window  manager  may  choose  to
               disallow the change.

               Note  that the Sun console escape sequences are recognized by XFree86 xterm and by
               dtterm.  The resize program may be installed as sunsize,  which  causes  makes  it
               assume the -s option.

               The  rows  and  columns  arguments  must  appear  last;  though  they are normally
               associated with the -s option, they are parsed separately.

FILES

       /etc/termcap   for the base termcap entry to modify.

       ~/.cshrc       user's alias for the command.
