Framebuffer terminal emulator
bterm -f font.bgf [-l locale] [program]
bterm is a terminal emulator for the Linux framebuffer. It supports multibyte locales and wide characters, in addition to basic terminal features such as cursor positioning.
Specify the font. BGF fonts are produced by bdftobogl(1) from standard BDF font files.
Specify a locale for bterm and processes run within it. The locale may also be specified normally in the environment. If a locale, especially one with a different character set than the current locale, will be used inside of bterm, it should be specified on the command line.
The following exit values are returned:
Exit code from executed program
Failed to exec program
Program terminated by signal.
On Debian systems, one appropriate BDF font can be found in the bf-utf-source package.
