116 <para>The <application>rxvt-unicode</application> terminal emulator uses the

120 files or to the system-wide <filename>/etc/X11/app-defaults/URxvt</filename>

122 <application>Perl</application> extension (assuming
123 <application>Perl</application> support wasn't disabled), which enables a
124 left button click to open an underlined URL in the specified browser, sets a
125 background and foreground color and loads an Xft font (as the

161
162 <para>The <application>rxvt-unicode</application> application can also run
163 in a daemon mode, which makes it possible to open multiple terminal windows
164 within the same process. The <command>urxvtc</command> client then connects
165 to the <command>urxvtd</command> daemon and requests a new terminal window.
166 Use this option with caution. If the daemon crashes, all the running
167 processes in the terminal windows are terminated.</para>
168
169 <para>You can start the <command>urxvtd</command> daemon in the system or
170 personal startup <command>X</command> session script (e.g.,
171 <filename>~/.xinitrc</filename>) by adding the following lines near the top
172 of the script:</para>
