st - simple terminal


st [-a] [-c class] [-f font] [-g geometry] [-i] [-o file] [-t title] [-l line] [-w windowid] [-v] [-e command...] [commands...] st [-a] [-c class] [-f font] [-g geometry] [-i] [-o file] [-t title] [-l line] [-w windowid] [-v] [-l line] [stty_args...]


st is a simple terminal emulator.


-a disable alternate screens in terminal -c class defines the window class (default $TERM). -f font defines the font to use when st is run. -g geometry defines the X11 geometry string. The form is [=][<cols>{xX}<rows>][{+-}<xoffset>{+-}<yoffset>]. See XParseGeometry(3) for further details. -i will fixate the position given with the -g option. -o iofile writes all the I/O to iofile. This feature is useful when recording st sessions. A value of "-" means standard output. -t title defines the window title (default 'st'). -w windowid embeds st within the window identified by windowid -l line use a tty line instead of a pseudo terminal. When this flag is used remaining arguments are used as flags for stty. -v prints version information to stderr, then exits. -e program [ arguments ... ] st executes program instead of the shell. If this is used it must be the last option on the command line, as in xterm / rxvt. This option is only intended for compability, and all the remaining arguments are used as a command even without it.


Ctrl-Print Screen Toggle if st should print to the iofile. Shift-Print Screen Print the full screen to the iofile. Print Screen Print the selection to the iofile. Alt-Shift-Page Up Increase font size. Alt-Shift-Page Down Decrease font size. Alt-Shift-Home Reset to default font size. Shift-Insert Paste from primary selection (middle mouse button). Alt-Shift-Insert Paste from clipboard selection. Alt-Shift-c Copy the selected text to the clipboard selection. Alt-Shift-v Paste from the clipboard selection.


st can be customized by creating a custom config.h and (re)compiling the source code. This keeps it fast, secure and simple.
