aterm: A fast and transparent VT100 terminal emulator for X1

Package available in: [trunk] [8.0] [7.0] [6.0] [2.1]

aterm is based upon rxvt v.2.4.8 with add ons of Alfredo Kojima's NeXT-ish scrollbars. Fast transparency functionality, background lightening/darkening or/and titinting(coloring). Original idea of using ParentRelative transparency mode belongs to Alfredo also, although code has been mostly reworked. It can also be integrated with AfterStep libasimage for pixmap loading from various formats.

Rxvt is an 8-bit clean, colour xterm replacement that uses significantly less memory than a conventional xterm, mostly since it doesn't support toolkit configurability or Tek graphics, but also since features can be removed at compile-time to reflect your needs. Some rxvt features (compilation dependent): ANSI-color, bold/blink attributes modify foreground/background colours, scrollbars with arrow buttons, kanji and greek support, printer-pipe, XPM, JPEG and PNG backgrounds with on-the-fly scaling, user-definable menus.
