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


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


  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 is not /bin/sh.

  -c  This option indicates that C shell commands should be generated even if
      the user's current shell is not /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.


  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


      for the base termcap entry to modify.

      user's alias for the command.


  The -u or -c must appear to the left of -s if	both are specified.
