NAME
       mlterm - Multi Lingual TERMinal emulator on X

SYNOPSIS
       mlterm [options]

DESCRIPTION
       mlterm is a multi-lingual terminal emulator written from scratch, which
       supports various character sets and encodings in the world and  complex
       characters  such  as  double  width for East Asian, combining for Thai,
       Vietnamese, and so on, and bi-direction for Arabic and  Hebrew.   Indic
       scripts  are experimentally supported.  It also supports various unique
       feature such as anti-alias using FreeType, multiple XIM, multiple  win-
       dows,  scrollbar  API,  scroll  by  mouse wheel, automatic selection of
       encoding, daemon mode, and so on.

       Supported encodings  are:  ISO-8859-[1-11],  ISO-8859-[13-16],  TIS-620
       (same  as  ISO-8859-11), KOI8-R, KOI8-U, KOI8-T, GEORGIAN-PS, TCVN5712,
       ISCII_(ASSAMESE|BENGALI|GUJARATI|    HINDI|KANNADA|MALAYALAM|ORIYA|PUN-
       JABI|TAMIL|TELUGU),  VISCII,  CP125[0-8],  CP874, EUC-JP, EUC-JISX0213,
       Shift_JIS,  Shift_JISX0213,  ISO-2022-JP[1-3],  EUC-KR,   UHC,   JOHAB,
       ISO-2022-KR,  GB2312  (EUC-CN),  GBK, GB18030, ISO-2022-CN, HZ, EUC-TW,
       BIG5, BIG5HKSCS, and UTF-8.  If you have already set locale (for  exam-
       ple  LANG variable; see locale(7) for detail) mlterm will automatically
       select proper encoding.

OPTIONS
       Note that bool is to be substituted by true or false.

       -A, --aa(=bool)
              Use anti-aliased fonts. This option works only with Xft or cairo
              for now.  The default is false.

       -B, --sbbg=color
              Specify  a  background  color of a scrollbar.  A valid value for
              color is a color name or a RGB value.  The color name should  be
              defined  in  rgb.txt  or  "color"  configuration  file.  The RGB
              value's format should be "#RRGGBB", "#RRGGBBAA",  "rgb:RR/GG/BB"
              or "rgba:RR/GG/BB/AA".

       -C, --ctl(=bool)
              Enable  complex text layouting on UTF8 encoding to support indic
              scripts and RTL (right-to-let)  languages  such  as  Arabic  and
              Hebrew.  The default is true.

       -E, --km=encoding
              Specify  encoding.   Valid  encodings  are listed in DESCRIPTION
              section above in this man page.  AUTO makes mlterm determine the
              according according to the current locale (default AUTO).

       -F, --sbfg=color
              Specify  a  foreground  color of a scrollbar.  See --sbbg option
              for valid values.

       -G, --vertical=mode
              Specify vertical writing mode.  cjk for RTL vertical writing and
              mongol  for LTR one.  The default is none which means horizontal
              writing mode.

       -H, --bright=value
              Brightness of background images in percent.  See -p  option  for
              details  of  background images.  The default is 100 (keep origi-
              nal).

       -I, --icon=name
              Specify a name to be used when a  mlterm  window  is  iconified.
              The default is "mlterm".

       -J, --dyncomb(=bool)
              Enable  dynamic  character combining.  "Dynamic" means that com-
              bining characters are stored in without combining but  they  are
              displayed using combined form.  This affects calculation of col-
              umn position, i.e., a pair of base character and combining char-
              acter  is  counted  to  be two columns in this mode, while it is
              counted to be one column in the normal mode.  Under this option,
              a  (logical) column number and a character one-to-one correspon-
              dence.  even for combining characters (though not for  fullwidth
              characters;  see  -Z/--multicol option for handling of fullwidth
              characters).  Thus, this mode enables you to use combining char-
              acters  with  software  which does not support combining charac-
              ters.  The default is false.

       -K, --metakey=value
              Specify a key to be interpreted as a  META  key.   Valid  values
              are:  alt, meta, hyper, super, mod1, mod2, mod3, mod4, and none.
              The default is none.

              See -k option also.

       -L, --ls(=bool)
              Whether to use login shell or not.  The default is false.

       -M, --im= input method : [ arguments ... ]
              Specify an input method.

              Examples:

              --im=xim
                     Use XIM with the default XIM server specified by standard
                     way (i.e., XMODIFIERS environmental variable).

              --im=xim:Ami
                     Use XIM with Ami on the system locale.

              --im=xim:kinput2:ja_JP.EUC-JP
                     Use XIM with kinput2 on ja_JP.EUC-JP locale.

              --im=kbd:arabic
                     Use keyboard mapping input method in Arabic.

              --im=kbd:hebrew
                     Use keyboard mapping input method in Hebrew.

              --im=kbd:isciixxx
                     Use keyboard mapping input method in Indic.

              --im=uim

              --im=none
                     Don't use input method.

       -N, --name=name
              Specify application name.  The default is "mlterm".

       -O, --sbmod=value
              Specify  the  side  to show a scrollbar.  left for left side and
              right for right side.  none turns  off  a  scrollbar.   autohide
              shows  a scrollbar only if mouse pointer is at the right edge of
              the screen.  The default is left.

       -P, --clip(=bool)
              Whether to enable CLIPBOARD (not only PRIMARY)  selection.   The
              default is true.

       -Q, --vcur(=bool)
              Change  interpretation  of cursor keys to be natural in vertical
              writing mode.  This means  that  up  and  down  arrow  keys  are
              treated  as  backward (left arrow in horizontal LTR) and forward
              (right arrow in horizontal LTR), respectively.  In cjk -G/--ver-
              tical  mode,  left and right arrow keys are also treated as next
              line (down arrow in horizontal LTR) and previous line (up  arrow
              in  horizontal  LTR),  respectively,  while vice versa in mongol
              mode.  The default is false.

       -R, --fsrange=range
              Set acceptable range of font size.  The format is  "minsize-max-
              size",  where  minsize  and  maxsize  are  font  sizes  in pixel
              (default 6-30).  The GUI configurator and other means  for  set-
              ting fontsize should honor the range.

       -S, --sbview=name
              Select  a  type  of  scrollbar.  See SCROLLBAR section below for
              details.  The default is "simple" which means the built-in  sim-
              ple scrollbar.

       -T, --title=name
              Specify a title for a mlterm window.  The default is "mlterm".

       -U, --viaucs(=bool)
              Force  to  convert  a  selection  (i.e., copy-and-paste strings)
              whose type is not UTF8_STRING to the current mlterm encoding via
              Unicode.   See  SELECTION section below for detail.  The default
              is false.

       -V, --varwidth(=bool)
              Use variable column width.  You may want to use this option when
              you use proportional fonts.  The default is false.

       -W, --sep=characterlist
              Delimiter  characters  used  for  word selection, which are con-
              sulted when you double-clicked mlterm, to define what is a word.
              The default is " ,.:;/|@()[]{}")

       -X, --alpha=value
              Alpha in pseudo or true transparent.  The default is 255.

       -Y, --decsp(=bool)
              Use  dynamically composed line drawing character set of DEC spe-
              cial.  The default is  false.   This  overrides  DEC_SPECIAL  in
              "font"  configuration  file,  while DEC_SPECIAL in "aafont" (for
              Xft or cairo) is always overridden.

       -Z, --multicol(=bool)
              Treat fullwidth characters (east Asian characters in most cases;
              which  occupies  two  columns  on the screen) as they occupy two
              logical columns.  It is the  de-facto  standard  way  to  handle
              fullwidth  characters  in east Asian terminal emulators (XFree86
              xterm and  kterm, cxterm, hanterm, rxvt, eterm) and  other  sys-
              tems  such  as  MS-DOS,  PC-9801, and so on.  In most fonts, the
              glyphs of fullwidth characters are designed assuming that  their
              width are twice of normal characters and won't display correctly
              without this option.  The default is true.

       -0, --crbg=color
              Specify background color for cursor (default is  same  to  fore-
              ground  color).   Valid values for color are color names defined
              in rgb.txt and color  rgb  string  whose  format  is  "#RRGGBB",
              "#RRGGBBAA", "rgb:RR/GG/BB" or "rgba:RR/GG/BB/AA".

       -1, --wscr=value
              Specify  actual  window  width, by percentage against calculated
              value by multiplying font width by column number.  This is  use-
              ful  when you use a proportional font which includes some glyphs
              with exceptionally  large  width,  i.e.,  much  larger  "maximum
              width" than your expectation.  The default is 100.

       -2, --hscr=value
              Specify  actual  screen  height,  like -1/--wscr does for width.
              The default is 100.

       -3, --contrast=value)
              Contrast of background image in  percent.   See  -p  option  for
              details of background image.  The default is 100.

       -4, --gamma=value)
              Gamma of background image in percent.  See -p option for details
              of background image.  The default is 100.

       -5, --big5bug(=bool)
              Enable a workaround for Big5 CTEXT bugs (which had been  existed
              until XFree86 4.1.0).  This affects Big5 selections (i.e., copy-
              and-paste strings) in COMPOUND_TEXT format which  mlterm  sends.
              The default is false.

       -6, --stbs(=bool)
              Don't  exit  backscroll  mode  when  console applications output
              something.  The default is false.

       -7, --bel=mode
              Behavior when BEL (0x07) is received. sound for  beep  ,  visual
              for  blanking screen and sound|visual for the both.  The default
              is none which ignores BEL.

       -8, --88591(=bool)
              Use ISO8859-1 fonts for US-ASCII part of various encodings.

       -9, --crfg=color
              Specify foreground color for cursor (default is  same  to  back-
              ground  color).   Valid values for color are color names defined
              in rgb.txt and color  rgb  string  whose  format  is  "#RRGGBB",
              "#RRGGBBAA", "rgb:RR/GG/BB" or "rgba:RR/GG/BB/AA".

       -$, --mc=value
              Doubleclick/tripleclick interval in millisecond.  The default is
              250.

       -%, --logseq(=bool)
              Enable logging. Contents of stream received by  mlterm  will  be
              logged  under  ~/.mlterm/.  This option is mainly intended to be
              used for debugging purposes.  The default is false.  Note that %
              should  be  escaped  to  be supplied as a command line option on
              most shells.

       -&, --borderless(=bool)
              Asks the window manager to use no decorations at  all.  Warning:
              You  will not be able to resize the window. You probably want to
              use --geometry as well.  The default is false.

       -@, --screens=value
              Specify number of screens (sessions) to be  used  in  start  up.
              The  default  is  1.   Note  that  when one of these screens are
              closed, sessions which were connected  to  the  screens  do  not
              immediately killed.

              See MULTIPLE PTY section for details.

       -*, --type=value
              Specify the rendering engine to be used to draw fonts.  xcore is
              conventional X11 core font mechanism.  xft means  Xft  mechanism
              and cairo means cairo mechanism.  The default is cairo.

       -#, --initstr=value
              Specify  a  string to be automatically sent after initialization
              of session.  The value normally will be parsed by a shell.   See
              -e option to execute other application at start-up time.

       -a, --ac=value
              Specify  number  of columns to be occupied by a Unicode's "East-
              AsianAmbiguous" character.  The default is 1 except "ja"  locale
              where the default is 2. Some of asian people may want to specify
              2.  See Unicode Standard Annex (UAX) #11 East Asian Width  found
              at Unicode web site for details.

       -b, --bg=color
              Specify  background  color  (default  white).   Valid values for
              color are color names defined in rgb.txt and  color  rgb  string
              whose   format  is  "#RRGGBB",  "#RRGGBBAA",  "rgb:RR/GG/BB"  or
              "rgba:RR/GG/BB/AA".

       -c, --cp932(=bool)
              Use CP932 mapping table to convert from JIS X  0208  to  Unicode
              when  displaying JIS X 0208 characters using Unicode font in Xft
              or cairo mode.  This is useful when you use proprietary Japanese
              true  type  fonts  which  are intended to be used with Microsoft
              Windows, with mlterm with encodings (such as EUC-JP,  Shift_JIS,
              ISO-2022-JP,  and  so  on)  which  contain JIS X 0208 as a coded
              character set.

              The reason is, such proprietary fonts may have glyphs  only  for
              Unicode  code  points into which JIS X 0208 code points are con-
              verted using CP932 mapping table.  (CP932 is a name  of  mapping
              table which is used by Microsoft to convert from Shift_JIS [plus
              Microsoft private extended characters] into  Unicode.   In  Uni-
              code's point of view, CP932 is a name of encoding which is simi-
              lar to Shift_JIS and is used by Japanese  version  of  Microsoft
              Windows.)   If  you  use such fonts for encodings such as EUC-JP
              and Shift_JIS with JIS0208.TXT mapping table which mlterm adopts
              as  the  standard, a few characters are mapped into Unicode code
              points where the fonts don't have glyphs.

              Both of CP932.TXT and JIS0208.TXT mapping tables are supplied by
              Unicode Consortium, though they are regarded to be obsolete.

              The default is true.

       -d, --display=string
              Specify X display to connect with.

       -e program [ arguments ... ]
              Invoke  the  command  in the mlterm window.  This option must be
              the last option on the command line.

       -f, --fg=color
              Foreground color (default black).  Valid values  for  color  are
              color names defined in rgb.txt and color rgb string whose format
              is "#RRGGBB", "#RRGGBBAA", "rgb:RR/GG/BB" or "rgba:RR/GG/BB/AA".

       -g, --geometry=geometry
              Specify size and position of the window; see X(7).

       -h, --help(=bool)
              Show help messages.

       -i, --xim(=bool)
              Whether  to  use  XIM  (X Input Method).  Most east Asian people
              will want to enable this option.  Other people can  also  safely
              enable  this.   The default is true.  The name of the XIM server
              to be connected is specified by standard way  (i.e.,  XMODIFIERS
              environmental variable).

       -j, --daemon=value
              Start  as  a daemon process. Note that mlclient is executed if a
              daemon  process  has  already  started.   Possible  =values  are
              "blend"  and  "genuine".   See  the  chapter  of DAEMON MODE for
              details.

       -k, --meta=mode
              Behavior of META key.  esc for sending ESC and none for ignoring
              META  key.   The default is 8bit which sets the most significant
              bit.

              See -K option also.

       -l, --sl=value
              Specify number of lines of backlog or "unlimited".  The  default
              is 128.

              Enable  combining characters by overstriking glyphs (recommended
              for TIS-620, TCVN5712, and UTF-8).  Note that fonts  which  con-
              tain  combining characters which extend backward cannot be used,
              since mlterm does combine characters by controlling the  writing
              positions.   This  option  is automatically turned on when using
              --dyncomb option.  The default is true.

       -n, --noucsfont(=bool)
              Use non-Unicode fonts even when mlterm encoding is UTF-8.   Use-
              ful  when  you  don't  have ISO10646-1 fonts and you want to use
              UTF-8 encoding.  The default is false.

              Specify number of extra pixels between lines.  The default is 0.

       -p, --pic=path
              Path  for a wallpaper (background) image.  Note that the wallpa-
              per cannot be used with pseudo transparent background.

       -q, --extkey(=bool)
              Enable extended keys for backscroll mode.  The default is false.
              Extended  scroll  keys  are  SCROLL_UP,  up  arrow, and "k" (for
              scrolling one line backward) and SCROLL_DOWN,  down  arrow,  and
              "j" (for scrolling one line forward).  Please note that concrete
              keys for symbols of SCROLL_UP and SCROLL_DOWN are  specified  in
              key  configuration  file.   Only  keys  of PAGE_UP and PAGE_DOWN

       -u, --onlyucsfont(=bool)
              Use Unicode fonts even when mlterm encoding is not UTF-8.   Use-
              ful  when you have ISO10646 fonts but you don't have other fonts
              and want to use non-UTF-8 encodings.  Note  that  conversion  to
              Unicode  is  lossy.   i.e. if mlterm encoding is not a subset of
              Unicode like  ISO-2022-JP-2  or  EUC-TW,  characters  which  are
              regarded  as  a same character in Unicode will be displayed with
              the same glyph and cannot be distinguished.

GUI CONFIGURATOR
       Pushing control key and mouse button 3 invokes GUI configurator (mlcon-
       fig).   It  can  modify  encoding, foreground and background color, tab
       size, backlog size, font size, usage of combining character, and so on.

       GUI  configurator  has  six  pages  (Encoding, Font, Background, Color,
       Scrollbar, and Others), OK/Apply/Cancel buttons, and four special  but-
       tons.

       Note this feature needs GTK+ 2.x or later.

              OK  button  applies  the  modified  configuration to the current
              mlterm session, saves it to "~/.mlterm/main" configuration file,
              and  quits  the GUI Configurator.  Apply button just applies the
              modified configuration to the current mlterm session.

       PTY List
              One process of mlterm may have multiple  sessions  and  screens.
              The sessions may or may not have corresponding screen, i.e., the
              number of sessions can be more than the number of screens.  Such
              situation  can be achieved by closing a part of multiple screens
              from -@/--screens option.  In such case, the screen-less session
              can  be  designated  to  one  of screens by choosing the session
              (pty) from this list and push "select" button.

CONFIGURABLE MENU
       Pushing control key and mouse button 1 invokes configurable  menu  dis-
       player  (mlterm-menu).   It  displays a menu with items such as "Larger
       Font" or "UTF-8 encoding".  Though a default menu  definition  is  sup-
       plied, you can freely define menu items by writing a menu configuration
       file.  See Menu Configuration File section for detail.

       Note this feature needs GTK+ 2.x or later.

MULTIPLE XIM
       mlterm can use multiple XIM (X Input Method) servers.  The current  XIM
       is specified by the GUI configurator.  Using this feature you can input
       multiple complex languages such as Japanese and Korean.  Locale  to  be
       used for communication with XIM can also be specified for each XIM.  In
       the GUI configurator, you can choose one of registered pair of XIM  and
       its locale or you can input your favorite XIM and its locale.

       The  locale  for XIM is only used for communication with the XIM and is
       not related to the current mlterm locale.  You have to properly config-
       ure  the  XIM locale only when your XIM has preference on the locale of
       XIM client (i.e., mlterm in this case).  mlterm  automatically  convert
       the  inputed  string  into  proper  encoding and you don't have to care
       about it.

       Of course the initial XIM is chosen by  using  standard  configuration,
       i.e.,  using XMODIFIERS environmental variable.  See X(7) for detail on
       XIM and XMODIFIERS variable.

DAEMON MODE
       When invoked with -j/--daemon command line  option,  mlterm  starts  to
       listen on a unix domain socket and accept requests from mlclient.

       With  blend  mlterm will exit when the final terminal window is closed.
       But with  genuine, mlterm will disconnect from  X  server  windows  and
       continues  to work. In latter case, it's possible to stop and restart a
       X server and revive the lasting sessions on mlterm.

SCROLLBAR
       mlterm supports scrollbar API  so  that  users  can  develop  scrollbar
       libraries with arbitrary look and feel.  The scrollbar libraries can be
       used by putting the libraries at the specified directory (determined on
       the  compilation  process)  and  invoke  mlterm with -s -S name option.
       Scrollbar libraries named "sample", "sample2", "athena", "motif", "moz-
       modern", and "next" are supplied.

ANTI-ALIAS
       mlterm  can  use  True  Type fonts using -A option via FreeType library
       when it has been compiled with anti-alias option.

       Note this feature needs XFree86 4.0.2 or above and  FreeType  2.0.2  or
       above.

WALLPAPER
       mlterm  can  use  background  image  (as  known as wallpaper), by using
       -p/--pic option.  You can also specify the brightness of the  image  by
       using -H/--bright option.

       Note this feature needs gdk-pixbuf.

MULTIPLE PTY
       This  is  one of most unique features of mlterm.  The number of windows
       can be specified using -P option.  Typing control +  F1  opens  another
       window  which  shares  the same process.  The maximum number of windows
       can be specified using --maxptys option.

BACKSCROLL MODE
       mlterm enters into backscroll mode by typing Shift  +  up  or  Shift  +
       PageUp key.  In the mode, you can use the following keys.

       j or Down
              Scroll down one line.

       k or Up
              Scroll up one line.

       d or PageDown
              Scroll down one page.

       u or PageUp
              Scroll up one page.

       Shift + space
              Initialize XIM.

       Shift + Insert
              Insert selection.

       Control + F1
              Open a new pty window.

       keys defined in key configuration file
              PAGE_UP,  PAGE_DOWN, SCROLL_UP, and SCROLL_DOWN keys are defined
              in the file.

       other keys
              Exit from the backscroll mode.

       Please note that keys other than PAGE_UP and PAGE_DOWN in key  configu-
       ration  file  are  available  only  when  you  used -q/--extkey command
       option.

SELECTION
       Selection is a mechanism to be used for copy-and-paste in X Window Sys-
       tem.  Thus, this section describes on so-called copy-and-paste.

       There  are  many  encodings  in the world.  Though copy-and-paste needs
       sender and receiver and each of them can use one of various  encodings,
       mlterm is designed to be able to receive characters from various encod-
       ings as much as possible.

       There are two  internationalized  types  of  selection.   One  is  COM-
       POUND_TEXT   is   the   another   is   UTF8_STRING.   COMPOUND_TEXT  is
       ISO2022-based and can distinguish  character  sets  which  a  character
       belongs  to.   However, the character sets which COMPOUND_TEXT supports
       are limited to ISO8859-* and East Asian character sets.  On  the  other
       hand,  UTF8_STRING is Unicode-based and can express all characters from
       Unicode character set.  However, it cannot distinguish characters  from
       different  character  sets  which share one codepoint in Unicode, which
       can be a problem especially for  CJK  Han  Ideogram  (in  other  words,
       Kanji,  Hanji,  or Hanja).  Note that UTF8_STRING is rather new and can
       be used only with XFree86.

       Though the receiver of copy-and-paste can request the  preferable  type
       of  selection,  the  sender  may  not support the requested type.  Thus
       mlterm has to be able to process both of COMPOUND_TEXT and UTF8_STRING.

       On  the other hand, encodings supported by mlterm (see DESCRIPTION sec-
       tion for detail) are classified into four categories;

       (a) Unicode itself
              UTF-8.

       (b) subset of Unicode and ISO-2022-compliant
              "Subset of Unicode" means that Unicode supports round-trip  com-
              patibility  for the encoding, i.e., the conversion of the encod-
              ing --> Unicode --> the encoding doesn't lose  any  information.
              "ISO-2022-compliant"  means that the encoding can be regarded as
              a subset of ISO-2022 where a part of ISO-2022 control codes  and
              escape  sequences  are  not  supported.   Many popular encodings
              belong to this category such as ISO-8859-*, EUC-*,  ISO-2022-KR,
              TIS-620, TCVN5712, and so on.

       (c) subset of Unicode and non-ISO-2022-compliant
              Some of popular encodings such as Shift_JIS, Big5, GBK, GB18030,
              Johab, and so on belongs to this category.

       (d) not subset of Unicode
              ISO-2022-JP, ISO-2022-JP-2, ISO-2022-JP-3, EUC-TW,  and  so  on.
              All of them are ISO-2022-compliant.

       Now the behavior of mlterm can be explained.

       -------------------------------------------------------
       encoding received selection  how to process?
       -------------------------------------------------------
          a     COMPOUND_TEXT       convert to Unicode
          a     UTF8_STRING         no need for conversion
          b     COMPOUND_TEXT       user preference *1
          b     UTF8_STRING         convert to the encoding *2
          c     COMPOUND_TEXT       user preference *1
          c     UTF8_STRING         convert to the encoding *2
          d     COMPOUND_TEXT       no need for conversion *3
          d     UTF8_STRING         convert to the encoding *2
       -------------------------------------------------------

       *1  Characters  from unsupported character sets (i.e., characters which
       cannot be expressed in the mlterm encoding) may appear in the selection
       (received  copy-and-paste  string).   If you want to receive characters
       which are equivalent to characters which are supported in  the  current
       mlterm  encoding  (i.e.,  characters  which share the same codepoint in
       Unicode), you can use -U (or --viaucs) option.  Otherwise, these  char-
       acters  are  pasted  into  mlterm  using ISO-2022 escape sequence (when
       mlterm encoding is category b).  Note such  ISO-2022  escape  sequences
       are illegal in the current mlterm encoding and the application software
       will need special feature to treat them properly,  though  it  is  dis-
       played  well in mlterm.  When mlterm encoding is category c, such char-
       acters are simply ignored (when -U option is not enabled).

       *2 Characters which cannot be converted into mlterm encoding are simply
       ignored.

       *3  Characters  from  unsupported  character  sets  will be pasted into
       mlterm using ISO-2022 escape sequence.

CONFIGURATION
       mlterm loads configuration files of "main", "font",  "vfont",  "tfont",
       "aafont", "vaafont", "taafont", "color", "key", "termcap", and "xim" on
       start up.  "menu" configuration file is loaded by the configurable menu
       displayer  (mlterm-menu).   See  the  section  of CONFIGURABLE MENU for
       detail.

       Configuration files for one user are  to  be  located  in  "~/.mlterm/"
       directory, while location for configuration files for all users depends
       on  the  compilation   option.    Possible   locations   are   "/etc/",
       "/etc/X11/", "/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/mlterm/", and so on.

       The names and the roles of configuration files are:

       main   Main configuration items which can be overridden by command line
              options.

       font   Configurations for ordinary X fonts.

       vfont  Configurations for ordinary X fonts of variable column width.

       tfont  Configurations for ordinary X fonts of vertical writing.

       aafont Configurations for Xft or cairo fonts.

       vaafont
              Configurations for Xft or cairo fonts of variable column  width.

       taafont
              Configurations for Xft or cairo fonts of vertical writing.

              tion file.

       menu   Define  menu  items which is displayed by configurable menu dis-
              player.

       The contents of these configuration files (other than menu) consist  of
       lines of "key=value" format.  Lines beginning with "#" are ignored.

       Note that the configuration files are changed since version 1.9.44.

   Main Configuration File
       This  file contains main configuration items which can be overridden by
       command line options.  The main configuration file "main" has the  fol-
       lowing  keys.  Parentheses show the corresponding command-line options.

   Font Configuration Files
       The font configuration files "font", "vfont", "tfont", "aafont",  "vaa-
       font", and "taafont" have the following keys.

       DEFAULT=font

       JISX0213_2000_1=font
       JISX0213_2000_2=font
       KSX1001_1997=font
       UHC=font (not used)
       JOHAB=font (not used)
       GB2312_80=font
       GBK=font
       BIG5=font
       HKSCS=font
       CNS11643_1992_n=font
       ISO10646_UCS4_1=font
       ISO10646_UCS4_1_FULLWIDTH=font
       U+XXXX-XXXX=font
              Specify  fonts  for corresponding character sets.  The format is
              different between "font", "vfont" "tfont"  files  and  "aafont",
              "vaafont" "taafont" files.

              In  "font",  "vfont",  "tfont"  files,  "font"  is  specified in
              "NAME:PERCENT" format where "SIZE" is font size  in  pixel,  and
              "NAME"  is  XLFD  or alias names of X fonts.  If "NAME" contains
              "%d", it is replaced by an appropriate font size number.  ":PER-
              CENT"  is multiplied by font size and decides character width of
              a font.  If ":PERCENT" is omitted, max font width  is  used  for
              it.

              In  "aafont", "vaafont", "taafont" files, "font" is specified in
              "FAMILY WEIGHT SLANT SIZE:PERCENT" format.  ":PERCENT" is multi-
              plied  by  font  size and decides character width of a font.  If
              ":PERCENT" is omitted, 'W' width is used for it.

       charset_BOLD=font
              Specify boldface fonts.

       charset_ITALIC=font
              Specify italic fonts.

       charset_BOLD_ITALIC=font
              Specify bold-italic fonts.

       U+XXXX-XXXX=font
              Specify which fonts to use for unicode ranges except U+00-7f.

   Color Configuration File
       The color configuration file "color" has the following key.

       COLORNAME=RGB
              Assign a concrete color for the name COLORNAME.  Default  colors
              used  by  mlterm  are  black, red, green, yellow, blue, magenta,
              cyan, and white.  and can be overridden here.

              For hilighted colors, a name with "hl_" prefix will be automati-
              cally  searched.   i.e.  for  bold  read  character, "hl_red" is
              searched instead of "red".

              17 - 230 and 232 - 255 in 256 colors can be also overridden.

              The format of RGB is either "RRRR-GGGG-BBBB" (where RRRR,  GGGG,
              and  BBBB  are  hexadecimal  value  from  0 to ffff), "#RRGGBB",
              "#RRGGBBAA", "rgb:RR/GG/BB" or "rgba:RR/GG/BB/AA"(where RR,  GG,
              and BB are hexadecimal value from 00 to ff).

              If mlterm failed to parse a entry, the color will be regarded as
              black.

   XIM Configuration File
       The X Input Methods configuration file "xim" has the following format

       XIM=locale

       where XIM is XIM name and locale is locale name used for  communication
       with the XIM server.  For example,
       kinput2=ja_JP.eucJP
       Ami=ko_KR.eucKR
       xcin-zh_CN.GB2312=zh_CN.GB2312
       These settings are used to create list of XIMs by the GUI configurator.
       Though a XIM which is not listed in this file can't  be  selected  from
       the list, it can be selected by specifying its name directly.

   Feature Key Configuration File
       The feature key configuration file "key" has the following format.

       KEY=FEATURE

       Here, the format for KEY is "(MASK+)KEY", where MASK is one of Control,
       Shift, Mod1, Mod2, Mod3, Mod4, Mod5, Mod and Alt.  You can specify mul-
       tiple  "MASK+"s.   You can search spellings of KEY by using xev(1) com-
       mand        or        searching        keysym        macros        from
       /usr/X11R6/include/X11/keysymdefs.h (or the equivalent file in your X11
       include directory) and omit the prefix XK_.  Double quotation marks are
       not needed.  You can specify Button1, Button2, Button3, Button4 or But-
       ton5 as KEY.

       FEATURE is one of IM_HOTKEY, EXT_KBD, OPEN_SCREEN,  NEW_PTY,  OPEN_PTY,
       NEXT_PTY,   PREV_PTY,   VSPLIT_SCREEN,   HSPLIT_SCREEN,   CLOSE_SCREEN,
       NEXT_SCREEN,  PREV_SCREEN,  HEXPAND_SCREEN,  VEXPAND_SCREEN,   PAGE_UP,

       SCROLL_UP
              Start backscroll  mode  and  scroll  up  by  one  line  (default
              Shift+Up).   Note  this  key  is  enabled  only when -q/--extkey
              option is used.

       SCROLL_DOWN
              Scroll down one line (default Shift+Down).   Note  this  key  is
              enabled only when -q/--extkey option is used.

       INSERT_SELECTION
              Insert selection (default Shift+Insert).

       "STRING"
              The  specified  string  is  issued  when the KEY key is pressed.
              Double quotation marks are required  around  the  STRING.   Note
              that you cannot control the status of mlterm by sending terminal
              control codes such as "\x1b]5379;encoding=utf8\x0a" because  the
              code sequence will be caught by your shell (or something running
              on it).  To deliver control sequences to  mlterm  directly,  use
              "proto:STRING" instead.

       "proto:STRING"
              The  specified  string  is  assumed to mlterm's original control
              sequence. A list of sequences should be found  in  doc/en/PROTO-
              COL.  For example, "proto:encoding=utf8" means changing the cur-
              rent character encoding to UTF-8.

       "exesel:STRING"
              The specified string is assumed to a command to be executed with
              selected strings as arguments.  For example, "exesel:mlclient -e
              w3m" means executing "mlclient -e w3m [selected text]".

       "menu:STRING"
              The specified string is assumed to a configuration program to be
              executed.    For  example,  "menu:mlterm-menu"  means  executing
              mlterm-menu.

   Terminal Behavior Configuration File
       This configuration file determines the behaviors of mlterm that  should
       match  the definition of terminfo and termcap.  In principle, this file
       should not be edited and, instead, you should choose a proper value for
       TERM  variable  (i.e.,  proper terminfo/termcap definition) which meets
       mlterm's behavior.  (Since mlterm' can behave as a xterm/kterm to  some
       extent,  TERM=kterm / TERM=xterm should give acceptable results.)  How-
       ever, sometimes you may not want to edit  your  terminfo  and  termcap.
       Your  software  may don't understand terminfo nor termcap, or your ter-
       minfo/termcap entry is shared by several terminal emulators and  chang-
       ing  it  will  break other terminals.  In such cases, you can configure
       mlterm so that it works well on existing  terminfo/termcap  definitions
       on  your  systems.   This  is also useful for distributors of operating
       systems (like Debian) with strict policy of terminal emulators'  behav-
       iors.

       You can define the behaviors of mlterm for each value of TERM variable,
       so that you don't need to edit termcap file each time  you  login  into
       other  systems  and  use different value of TERM variable by -y option.
       You can also specify the default behavior when TERM variable is differ-
       ent from all of specified TERM names in the termcap file.

       The  grammar  of  this configuration file is resemble to the grammar of
       termcap entries.  First, one or more name(s) of TERM is written.   Mul-
       tiple  names  are  connected with vertical line character '|'.  Special
       name '*' is for default.  Then colon ':' comes, and  keys  are  written
       separated by colons.  Configuration(s) for other TERM will follow after
       new line.

       Followings are available keys for each TERM value.

              Specify sequence to be outputted when F3 key is pushed  (default
              \EOR).

       k4=sequence
              Specify  sequence to be outputted when F4 key is pushed (default
              \EOS).

              are painted by the initial background color.  Default is  non-ut
              behavior.

       The  following  special  characters  can be used to specify sequence in
       keys of kD/kb/kh/@7.

       Mapping tables between Unicode and local character sets (and encodings)
       are found at Unicode Consortium web  site  (http://www.unicode.org/Pub-
       lic/MAPPINGS/).  Note that mapping tables for East Asian character sets
       and encodings are moved to  OBSOLETE/EASTASIA  directory  of  the  site
       since August 2001.

       For  BIG5  and BIG5HKSCS encodings, mapping tables for Unicode is taken
       from ftp://xcin.linux.org.tw/pub/xcin/i18n/charset/.

       Unicode Standard Annex (UAX) #11 East Asian Width, which explains  East
       Asian  Width  properties,  and  EastAsianWidth.txt, which defines East-
       AsianAmbiguous characters in Unicode, are supplied by  Unicode  Consor-
       tium (http://www.unicode.org).
