How do i change the size of a xterm window or lanch one with a specified size?
 
well, as the title says, how do i resize a xterm window with a command that can go into a shell script or launch a new window with a specific size?


Thanks in advance

Launching a new xterm with special size is done like this:


aterm -fn "-misc-fixed-medium-r-normal--8-*-*-*-*-*-iso8859-15" +sb -geometry 80x90+620+2 -fg 4 -e htop&
aterm -fn "-misc-fixed-medium-r-normal--8-*-*-*-*-*-iso8859-15" +sb -geometry 200x10+0+900 -fg 4 -e tail -f /var/log/kern.log&

All apps using xlib should have this option, like xterm,..
