I don't know. My dtterm(5) man page reads :
SunOS 5.7 Last change: 25 Apr 1994 15
Headers, Environments, and Macros dtterm(5)
Esc ] p1 ; p2 <control>-G
Set text parameters. This escape sequence allows
various terminal emulator text values to be set.
Valid supported values of p1 are:
0 Change the icon name and window title to
the string p2.
1 Change the icon name to the string p2.
2 Change the window title to the string
3 Set the current working directory to the
string p2. The terminal emulator tries
to restart in this directory when it is
restarted in a new session.
Esc ] l text Esc Backslash
Set the window title to text.
The second is the same as the `sun-cmd' case in zsh.
AB> BTW is it possible to get the current window title?
I could print it with :
$ echo '[21t'
But does someone know how to catch this in a shell script ? Is there
a better way than using script(1) ?
This is an excerpt of what dtterm(5) says about '[21t' :
Esc [ p1 ; p2 ; p3 t
Window manipulation. Valid values for p1 (and
any additional parameters) are:
21 Report the dtterm(1) window's title.
The terminal emulator returns ``Esc ] l
title Esc Backslash''.
This seems to be true for xterm too (which I find strange since xterm
does not accept the resulting ']ltitle\' sequence).
