This manual page documents briefly the fqterm command.
This manual page was written for the Debian distribution because the original program does not have a manual page.
FQTerm is one of the most widely used BBS client in China, it supports telnet/ssh1/ssh2 protocols and can process ANSI control sequences. It can be used to login BBS sites or *NIX hosts.
Almost all the BBSes in Greater China Region are in BIG5 or GBK encoding. So FQTerm only support these two encodings and ASCII.
FQTerm is writtern in QT4.
FQTerm is designed for Chinese BBS, so it will startup with a simplified Chinese interface (even your locale is not in zh_CN). You can switch it to a English interface by following key sequence "Alt+V,l,e". You can also close fqterm, then open $HOME/.fqterm/fqterm.cfg, change the "language=zh_CN" line to "language=en_US".
