rxvt-2.7.8: description + notes

A VT102 emulator for the X Window System.

Rxvt is a color VT102 terminal emulator for the X Window System. Rxvt is intended to be an xterm replacement for users who don't need the more esoteric features of xterm, like Tektronix 4014 emulation, session logging and toolkit style configurability. Since it doesn't support those features, rxvt uses much less swap space than xterm uses. This is a significant advantage on a machine which is serving a large number of X sessions.

NOTE: This package does not install rxvt as a setuid binary, which means that it will not by default be able to write a utmp entry. If you require utmp entries then make rxvt setuid like this:

chmod 4755 /usr/freeware/bin/rxvt
