DESCRIPTION
setterm writes to standard output a character string that will invoke the specified terminal capabilities. Where possible, / etc/termcap is consulted to find the string to use. Some options, however, do not correspond to a termcap(5) capability. In this case, if the terminal type is minix-vc or minix-vcam, the string that invokes the specified capabilities on the PC Minix virtual console driver is output. Options that are not implemented by the terminal are ignored.

OPTIONS
Most options are self-explanatory. The less obvious options are as follows:

-term Can be used to override the TERM environment variable
-reset Displays the terminal reset string, which typically resets the terminal to its power on state
-initialize Displays the terminal initialization string, which typically sets the terminal’s rendering options, and other attributes to the default values
-default Sets the terminal’s rendering options to the default values
-store Stores the terminal’s current rendering options as the default values
