Having studied the
document I discovered several very useful xterm escape-sequence
features. There is one of which I am not able to put to work properly
though, so here is the puzzle. :-)
Lets consider the sequence category
CSI P s ; P s ; P s t Window manipulation ...
and in particular
P s = 2 1 -> Report xterm window’s title as OSC l title ST
(It appears " OSC l title ST " means " ESC] l title ESC\ ")
Obviously something like
t=`echo -ne "\033[21t"`
for i in 5 4 3 2 1
echo -ne "\033]2;...wait $i...\07"
doesn't work as l above needs to be replaced by 2; and ESC\ by \07
provided this is kind of approach is possible at all.
Is there any way to use this above escape sequence in the sense as
apparent from the above shell script? ... or how is this sequence
supposed to be used?
Thanks in advance for your time,
