resize - set TERMCAP and terminal settings to current xterm window
resize [ -u | -c ] [ -s [ row col ] ]
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
% alias rs 'set noglob; eval `resize`'
After resizing the window, the user would type:
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 the read it back in with the ``.'' command:
$ resize > /tmp/out
$ . /tmp/out
The following options may be used with resize:
- This option indicates
that Bourne shell commands should be generated even if the user's current
shell isn't /bin/sh.
- 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.
