       uxterm - X terminal emulator for Unicode (UTF-8) environments


       uxterm [ xterm-options ]


       uxterm  is  a wrapper around the xterm(1) program that invokes the latter program with the
       “UXTerm” X resource class set.  All arguments  to  uxterm  are  passed  to  xterm  without
       processing;  the  -class  and -u8 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 “en_US” (the
       English language as used in the territory of the United States) is assumed.  The locale(1)
       utility  is used to determine whether the system supports the selected locale.  If it does
       not, uxterm will exit with an error and report the output of locale.

       Note: uxterm may produce unexpected results if the current locale is set to one  in  which
       the UTF-8 character encoding is not supported, or if fonts using the ISO 10646-1 character
       set are not available.  In the Debian system, the “xfonts-base” package provides the fonts
       that  uxterm  uses  by  default.   To change the fonts uxterm uses, edit the /etc/X11/app-
       defaults/UXTerm file.

       A similar wrapper, koi8rxterm(1), is available for KOI8-R environments.


              The values of these variables are checked, in order, to determine the character set
              used by the current locale.
