ZUTTY(1) Zutty ZUTTY(1)


zutty - Efficient full-featured X11 terminal emulator


This manual page documents briefly the zutty program.

This manual page was written for the Debian™ distribution because the original program does not have a manual page.

zutty is a terminal emulator for the X Window System, functionally similar to several other X terminal emulators such as xterm, rxvt and more. It is also similar to other, much more modern, GPU-accelerated terminal emulators.
