i want to know 2 things :
1.) when running xterm ,cmdtool how can i set the window name and its icon name (of the program running inside) ,to be displayed ,if i have 7 windows open i can't know which window is running what program ... how can i set this option
.... automatically and not each time manualy (-n switch for the xterm).

2.) the points here for question ,when do they get reseted ,after i ran out of points i can't ask anymore q. for how long ,or what should i do to reset them back to their initial value?

csh syntax:
 switch ($term)
 case sun:
 case sun-cmd:
    alias back      "echo -n '^[[6t' > /dev/ttyp\!*"
    alias close     "echo -n '^[[2t' > /dev/ttyp\!*"
    alias front     "echo -n '^[[5t' > /dev/ttyp\!*"
    alias open      "echo -n '^[[1t' > /dev/ttyp\!*"
    alias ttytext   'echo -n "^[]l\!*^[\^[]L\!*^[\">`tty`'
    breaksw
 case hpterm:
    alias ttytext   'set ll = `echo "\!*" | awk "{print length}"`;echo -n "^[&f0k${ll}D\!*"; unset ll'
    breaksw
 case iris-ansi*:
    # buggy: does not support window settings
    alias ttytext   'echo -n "^[]2;\!*^G"'
    alias ttytitle  'echo -n "^[]2;\!*^G"'
    breaksw
 case dtterm:
 case linux:
 case xwsh:
 case xterm:
    alias ttytext   'echo -n "^[]0;\!*^G"'
    alias ttyname   'echo -n "^[]1;\!*^G"'
    alias ttytitle  'echo -n "^[]2;\!*^G"'
    breaksw
endsw


take care about
   ^G  and  ^[
they are ASCII 0x07  and  ASCII  0x1b

Good luck

depends on your editor, in vi for example use:
  ^V^G            Ctrl-V followed by Ctrl-G
or
  ^VESC         Ctrl-V followed by ESC

In a shell it can be more tricky, try to type the chars as is, just the CTRL-G itself

emacs, I can't give **you** this answer, because this depends highly on your personal emacs configuration/settings.
I suggest using vi, it's pretty simple:
i  for insert, then type your text, ESC to end your input, then :wq to save and quit (but this is not subject to this question:)

you've forgotten the   endsw   command.

Uups, may be you've a Copy/Paste  problem:
there is **exactly** one line between  case hpterm:  and  breaksw

i only wrote from :case sun till the hp(not including the hp),and tthe xterm case so i have 2 cases and 2 breaksw and one endsw.

i didn't write the hp ect since im working on the sunos and xterm ,is this ok ...?
but still i think i covered the breaks and end sw ,so why do i still get breaksw: endsw not found ??

p.s.

Yes, sounds good.
As I wrote it is csh syntax, so $HOME/.cshrc is a good place.

Hey, csh is like C (C-shell:-), so in worst case you get the wrong settings.
It's best if you send your script or give me a email address.
