NAME

resize - set TERMCAP and terminal settings to current xterm window size  

SYNOPSIS

resize [-u] [-c] [-s[row col]]


 

OPTIONS

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 is not /bin/sh. This option indicates that C shell commands should be generated even if the user's current shell is not /bin/csh. This option indicates that Sun console escape sequences will be used instead of the special xterm escape code. If rows and columns are given, resize will ask the xterm to resize itself. However, the window manager may choose to disallow the change.
 

DESCRIPTION

The resize command prints 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 user's .cshrc:
        %  alias rs 'set noglob; eval `resize`'

After resizing the window, the user would type: % rs

Users of versions of the Bourne shell (usually known as /bin/sh) that do not 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
