That file is maintained in Debian (I don't recall if it's licensed so I could incorporate it in xterm).

ok (I don't have it at hand, but will look to see what its status is).

I do maintain the uxterm script (though I seem to recall there is a Debian

Hi,

I fixed the typo in 229-1.

Thomas, the manpage carries the following licensing information:

(on my to-do list - #229 was just to fix some bugs that were distracting
me from other work)
