Type "man X" for general options of X-Windows (includes many that are applicable to xterm).

Type "man xterm" for items specific to xterm (note that since many options appear in the X manpage they won't appear in the xterm one which is why I recommended reading that one first).

The option to ADD a scroll bar is "-sb". I'm not sure which one suppresses it but the man page should tell you.

OK now I'm back in front of my Linux box. From the xterm man page:

+sb This option indicates that a scrollbar should not be displayed.


So just typing "xterm +sb" should start an xterm with no scroll bar.
