1) do the following everytime you resize xterm window
I create an alias for vi, so I don't have to do the eval stuff every time
I change the window size:
alias myvi 'eval `resize` ;vi \!*'
2) HP didn't handle window sizing at all until 8.07, and even 8.07's
implementation is incomplete. HP-UX 9.0 should fix this problem.
3) I found out myself that if you run xterm in HP machine and display to your
SUN will fixed the problem. so I created another alias like this:
if you use C-Shell:
alias hpxterm 'xhost +hp ; rsh hp "setenv DISPLAY sun:0;/usr/bin/X11/xterm -ls"'
if you use Bourne-Shell
alias hpxterm 'xhost +hp ; rsh hp "export DISPLAY=sun:0;/usr/bin/X11/xterm -ls"'
* suppose HP hostname is "hp" and SUN hostname is "sun"
