Re: How are .Xdefaults files handled under Debian?

Hi Mark;

Well, I think that I got it from a couple of places but I seem to remember
the man rxvt was about the more informative about XTERM resources (for my
purposes anyway) than man xterm was.

On the system that I am using right now the form of the entry is:
"xterm*scrollBar:yes" but I suspect that "yes", "on", and "true" may all
be aliases for the same boolean flag (ie: "true").

I also use "xterm*reverseVideo:yes" but there is one thing that happens
that really "bugs" me...  If an error occurs in "vi" when on an xterm the
reverse video gets screwed up.  Background seems to switch to "white"
while the forground remains "white".  Makes terminal use rather a bit
difficult!  To correct that it seems that I have to do "hard resets" in a
row using the pulldown menu.
