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

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

DESCRIPTION
       Resize  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 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

OPTIONS
       The following options may be used with resize:

       -u      This option indicates that Bourne shell commands should be generated even  if  the
	       user's current shell isn't /bin/sh.

       -c      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  disal-
	       low 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 associ-
	       ated with the -s option, they are parsed separately.

FILES
       /etc/termcap   for the base termcap entry to modify.

       ~/.cshrc       user's alias for the command.
