Some users may want to debug with an xterm, but don't actually want to debug with the xterm executable because it doesn't have some of the abilities they need (such as displaying non-ASCII characters). You can specify the executable used to show the debugger on UNIX by setting the XTERM_PROGRAM runtime configuration variable.

Its default value is xterm, but it can be set to any compatible program such as dtterm or kterm. The runtime executes this program when it tries to create the program for background debugging. Note that the runtime passes some arguments to this program, so this program must be able to execute with those arguments. These arguments are:

-title "title of the window"


-display Xserver-name

The -Sccn option allows the program to be used as the input and output channel for the runtime, and is absolutely required. Without this option, the program won't know to display data from the runtime.
