     Type:  enhancement  |      Status:  new                           
 Priority:  normal       |   Milestone:  future                        
Component:  BOOK         |     Version:  SVN                           
 Severity:  normal       |    Keywords:  rxvt-unicode                  
 This a ticket to include rxvt-unicode terminal emulator in the book.


 * Works without issues in every locale.

 * Embedded perl interpreter (--enable-perl).

 Some things you can do with some perl extensions,already included in the

 Tabbed terminal.Shift-Left and Shift-Right will switch to the tab left or
 right of the current one, while Shift-Down creates a new tab.

 Middle click in an url,opens the program specified in the resources.
 or by starting the urxvtc client like
 urxvtc -pe tabbed

 Incremental scrollback buffer search pressing Alt+s.

 Popup menu to Ctrl-Button2 that lets you toggle options at runtime.

 * Daemon.
 That means you can start the daemon (urxvtd) and then you can connect the
 clients (urxvtc) to it.Very efficient in terms of memory usage.
 Warning.If the daemon crashes for some reason you will loose the clients
 too.However this is a very rare case;In more than 2 years of heavy usage I
 didn't have such a crash.

 *Active development.

 Instructions (some of the config options could be excluded):

 ./configure --prefix=/usr \
         --enable-xft \
         --enable-font-styles \
         --enable-transparency \
         --enable-tinting \
         --enable-fading \
         --enable-utmp \
         --enable-wtmp \
         --enable-lastlog \
         --disable-rxvt-scroll \
         --disable-next-scroll \
         --disable-xterm-scroll \
         --enable-perl \

 Current version is 7.9.
 Download link for anyone is interested to give it a try and for testing

 Some of the options you can put in the ~/.Xdefaults (preferable according
 with the author instead of .Xresources).
