NAME

xtitle - set window title and icon name for an X11 terminal window

SYNOPSIS

xtitle [ -tiq ] [ -- ] string ... | [ -V ] [ -h ]

DESCRIPTION

Xtitle will set the window title and/or the icon name of the terminal window in which it is run to be its command line arguments. It does this by outputting the appropriate xterm(1) control sequence characters. Unless suppressed, xtitle will also report the settings it has made.

OPTIONS

-t, --title
Only set the window title. Default sets both.
-i, --icon
Only set the icon name. Default sets both.
-q, --quiet
Quiet mode. Doesn't report the settings performed.
-V, --version
Only prints the program version.
-h, --help
Prints a helpful usage message.
--
Interprets all following arguments as strings instead of options.

CAVEATS

Xtitle is known to work with xterm(1) and dtterm(1). The effect of the control sequences in other terminals is not known, though I wouldn't expect any problems.
