Dynamic Xterm Window Tittle


Hi I'm wondering if anyone knows how to get the output from a command into the title of a xterm window or if this is even possible. Basically i have a little script that generates a human readable number for the size of files in the current directory and i want to have the output from this displayed in the titlebar for my xterm windows. Thanks in advance for any help you can give. ----Mike
