       xttitle - change X terminal emulator window titles


       xttitle title [ icon ]


       This  manual page documents briefly the xttitle command.  This manual page was written for
       the Debian GNU/Linux distribution because the original program  does  not  have  a  manual

       xttitle  is  a  program  that  changes  the  title  (and possibly icon) of your X terminal
       emulator windows. It should work for any program  that  emulates  an  xterm-like  terminal
       under X.

       You  may  want  to create an alias in your shell for 'cd', so that your window title keeps
       track of your current working directory. In Bash, the following seems to work for me:

                 [ $TERM = 'xterm ] && xttitle "[$$] ${USER}@${HOSTNAME}:$PWD"

            function cd()
                 builtin cd $*; update_title

       You can then set up other things that run update_title - for instance you may want to  put
       it  in your shell startup file so that the title gets updated when you open a new terminal
       emulator window.
