 RESIZE(1)			X Version 11			   RESIZE(1)
				 Release 6.3

      resize - set TERMCAP and terminal settings to current xterm window

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

      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

      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 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.

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

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