46 and running the testsuites, tests in <application>bash</application> and

154 <para>
155 The <application>rxvt-unicode</application> terminal emulator uses the
156 resource class <classname>URxvt</classname> and the resource name
157 <classname>urxvt</classname>. You can add X resource definitions to a
158 user's <filename>~/.Xresources</filename> or
159 <filename>~/.Xdefaults</filename> files or to the system-wide
160 <filename>/etc/X11/app-defaults/URxvt</filename> file. The following
161 example will load the <classname>matcher</classname>
162 <application>Perl</application> extension (assuming
163 <application>Perl</application> support wasn't disabled), which enables
164 a left button click to open an underlined URL in the specified browser,
165 sets a background and foreground color and loads an Xft font (as the
166 <systemitem class="username">root</systemitem> user):

208 The <application>rxvt-unicode</application> application can also run
209 in a daemon mode, which makes it possible to open multiple terminal
210 windows within the same process. The <command>urxvtc</command> client
211 then connects to the <command>urxvtd</command> daemon and requests a
212 new terminal window. Use this option with caution. If the daemon
213 crashes, all the running processes in the terminal windows are
214 terminated.
215 </para>
216
217 <para>
218 You can start the <command>urxvtd</command> daemon in the system or
219 personal startup <command>X</command> session script (e.g.,
220 <filename>~/.xinitrc</filename>) by adding the following lines near the
221 top of the script:
