Usage

The slrn terminal title macro can be used by including it in the .slrnrc user initialization file via the interpret command, e.g. provided that the file terminal-title.sl is located in one of the directories specified by the macro_directory configuration variable:

interpret "terminal-title.sl"

The terminal title macro can be configured through the following slang variables:

TerminalTitle->article_title_format
The string displayed in the terminal title in article mode. The string may contain certain substitution identifiers in order to insert information from slrn at runtime.
TerminalTitle->group_title_format
The string displayed in the terminal title in group mode. The string may contain certain substitution identifiers in order to insert information from slrn at runtime.

Substitution identifiers always start with a "%" sign. The following substitution identifiers can be referenced from TerminalTitle->article_title_format and TerminalTitle->group_title_format:

v
The slrn version.
s
The name of the current news server.
n
The name of the current newsgroup.
