simple terminal


The simple terminal by the laudable suckless.org persons lacks xterm's Tektronix 4014 emulation and several other features of questionable utility.
The engineers war cry "Keep it simple, idiots" is more audible in st's implementation, less than 4 kLOC, and anti-aliased fonts all the same (by use of libfontconfig).

I prefer the following configuration in config.h

static char font[] = "Inconsolata:pixelsize=16:hinting=true:dpi=72:"
                     "rgba=vrgb:antialias=true:autohint=true";
with Raph Levien's Inconsolata in sub-pixel rendering.
