143 <para>
144 The <application>rxvt-unicode</application> terminal emulator uses the
145 resource class <classname>URxvt</classname> and the resource name
146 <classname>urxvt</classname>. You can add X resource definitions to a
147 user's <filename>~/.Xresources</filename> or
148 <filename>~/.Xdefaults</filename> files or to the system-wide
149 <filename>/etc/X11/app-defaults/URxvt</filename> file. The following
150 example will load the <classname>matcher</classname>
151 <application>Perl</application> extension (assuming
152 <application>Perl</application> support wasn't disabled), which enables
153 a left button click to open an underlined URL in the specified browser,
154 sets a background and foreground color and loads an Xft font (as the
155 <systemitem class="username">root</systemitem> user):

197 The <application>rxvt-unicode</application> application can also run
198 in a daemon mode, which makes it possible to open multiple terminal
199 windows within the same process. The <command>urxvtc</command> client
200 then connects to the <command>urxvtd</command> daemon and requests a
201 new terminal window. Use this option with caution. If the daemon
202 crashes, all the running processes in the terminal windows are
203 terminated.

205
206 <para>
207 You can start the <command>urxvtd</command> daemon in the system or
208 personal startup <command>X</command> session script (e.g.,
209 <filename>~/.xinitrc</filename>) by adding the following lines near the
210 top of the script:
