xterm related


I want to launch a bunch of xtreminal windows from a shell script.
How can we specify the location of these windows on the screen?
Does 'xterm' have any options to fix the x and y coordinates of the window?

Secondly,  On the Exceed terminal can we set up keyboard mappings similar to telnet ones?
How do we do this?

Thanks in advance
regards

Otetelisanu and shivsa are right wrt the on-screen
position. In order to set up key mappings for an
xterm, you should read about the

XTerm*VT100.gaKeymap.translations:

and

XTerm*VT100.translations

entries in the user's default resource file ($HOME/.Xdefaults)
These mappings should work with exceed, too.

Bitnal,
You can split the points yourself, in the proportions you choose.  See:
