    setterm

    
    
    

    SYNOPSIS

           setterm [options]
    
    
    

    DESCRIPTION

           setterm  writes  to standard output a character string that will invoke
           the specified terminal capabilities.  Where possible terminfo  is  con-
           sulted  to  find the string to use.  Some options however (marked "vir-
           tual consoles only" below) do not correspond to a terminfo(5)  capabil-
           ity.  In this case, if the terminal type is "con" or "linux" the string
           that invokes the specified capabilities on the PC Minix virtual console
           driver is output.  Options that are not implemented by the terminal are
           ignored.
    
    
    

    OPTIONS

           For boolean options (on or off), the default is on.
    
           For conciseness, an 8-color below is black, red, green,  yellow,  blue,
           magenta, cyan, or white.
    
           A  16-color is an 8-color, grey, or bright followed by red, green, yel-
           low, blue, magenta, cyan, or white.
    
           The various color options may be set independently, at least at virtual
           consoles,  though  the  results of setting multiple modes (for example,
           -underline and -half-bright) are hardware-dependent.
    
           -term terminal_name
                  Overrides the TERM environment variable.
    
           -reset Displays the terminal reset string, which typically  resets  the
                  terminal to its power on state.
    
           -initialize
                  Displays  the  terminal  initialization  string, which typically
                  sets the terminal's rendering options, and other  attributes  to
                  the default values.
    
           -cursor [on|off]
                  Turns the terminal's cursor on or off.
    
           -repeat [on|off] (virtual consoles only)
                  Turns keyboard repeat on or off.
    
           -appcursorkeys [on|off] (virtual consoles only)
                  Sets  Cursor  Key  Application Mode on or off. When on, ESC O A,
                  ESC O B, etc.  will be sent for the cursor keys instead of ESC [
                  A,  ESC  [  B, etc.  See the "vi and Cursor-Keys" section of the
                  Text-Terminal-HOWTO for how  this  can  cause  problems  for  vi
                  users.
    
           -linewrap [on|off] (virtual consoles only)
                  Turns automatic line-wrapping on or off.
                  Sets the color for half-bright characters.
    
           -inversescreen [on|off] (virtual consoles only)
                  Inverts  the  screen  colors.   Foreground  and  background  are
                  swapped, as are underline and half-brightness.
    
           -bold [on|off]
                  Turns bold (extra bright) mode on or off.  Except at  a  virtual
                  console,  -bold off turns off all attributes (bold, half-bright-
                  ness, blink, reverse).
    
           -half-bright [on|off]
                  Turns dim (half-brightness)  mode  on  or  off  (see  -hbcolor).
                  Except  at  a  virtual  console,  -half-bright off turns off all
                  attributes (bold, half-brightness, blink, reverse).
    
           -blink [on|off]
                  Turns blink mode on or off.  Except at a virtual console, -blink
                  off  turns  off  all  attributes  (bold, half-brightness, blink,
                  reverse).
    
           -reverse [on|off]
                  Turns reverse video mode on or off.  Except at  a  virtual  con-
                  sole,  -reverse off turns off all attributes (bold, half-bright-
                  ness, blink, reverse).
    
           -underline [on|off]
                  Turns underline mode on or off (see -ulcolor).
    
           -store (virtual consoles only)
                  Stores the terminal's current rendering options (foreground  and
                  background colors) as the values to be used at reset-to-default.
    
           -clear [all]
                  Clears the screen and "homes" the cursor, as clear(1).
    
           -clear rest
                  Clears from the current  cursor  position  to  the  end  of  the
                  screen.
    
           -tabs [tab1 tab2 tab3 ...] (virtual consoles only)
                  Sets  tab stops at the given horizontal cursor positions, in the
                  range 1-160.  Without arguments, shows the current tab stop set-
                  tings.
    
           -clrtabs [tab1 tab2 tab3 ...] (virtual consoles only)
                  Clears  tab stops from the given horizontal cursor positions, in
                  the range 1-160.  Without arguments, clears all tab stops.
    
           -regtabs [1-160] (virtual consoles only)
                  Clears all tab stops, then sets a regular tab stop pattern, with
                  one  tab  every specified number of positions.  Without an argu-
                  to the file specified in the -file option, overwriting its  con-
                  tents;  the  default is screen.dump.  Without an argument, dumps
                  the current virtual console.  Overrides -append.
    
           -append [1-NR_CONS]
                  Like -dump, but appends to the snapshot file  instead  of  over-
                  writing it.  Only works if no -dump options are given.
    
           -file dumpfilename
                  Sets  the snapshot file name for any -dump or -append options on
                  the same command line.  If  this  option  is  not  present,  the
                  default is screen.dump in the current directory.
    
           -msg [on|off] (virtual consoles only)
                  Enables  or  disables the sending of kernel printk() messages to
                  the console.
    
           -msglevel 1-8 (virtual consoles only)
                  Sets the console logging level  for  kernel  printk()  messages.
                  All  messages strictly more important than this will be printed,
                  so a logging level of 0 has the same effect as  -msg  on  and  a
                  logging level of 8 will print all kernel messages.  klogd(8) may
                  be a more convenient interface to the  logging  of  kernel  mes-
                  sages.
    
           -powersave on|vsync
                  Puts the monitor into VESA vsync suspend mode.
    
           -powersave hsync
                  Puts the monitor into VESA hsync suspend mode.
    
           -powersave powerdown
                  Puts the monitor into VESA powerdown mode.
    
           -powersave [off]
                  Turns off monitor VESA powersaving features.
    
           -powerdown [0-60]
                  Sets  the  VESA powerdown interval in minutes.  Without an argu-
                  ment, defaults to 0 (disable  powerdown).   If  the  console  is
                  blanked or the monitor is in suspend mode, then the monitor will
                  go into vsync suspend mode or powerdown mode respectively  after
                  this period of time has elapsed.
    
           -blength [0-2000]
                  Sets  the  bell  duration in milliseconds.  Without an argument,
                  defaults to 0.
    
           -bfreq [freqnumber]
                  Sets the bell frequency in Hz.  Without an argument, defaults to
                  0.
