i don't think there is a fullscreen option
but you can use the -geometry option with most programs ... for example:

aterm -geometry 1024x700

icewm will automatically resize the window to fill the screen (maximize) if you specify a -geometry size larger than the screen res

Thank you Guesttoo.

It's bizarre though, because after experimenting for a while with your suggestion, this code seems to be the closest I can get to aterm being fullcsreen (my screen res. is 1024x768)...
Code:
aterm -geometry 143x51


...which seems strange, as that doesn't seem to be the amount of pixels...

Oh well, it works for my purposes. Thanks again G2 Smile

-geometry takes either pixel or character size, depending on the application. Terminal emulators usually use the second choice.

If you are using IceWM you just press Alt-F11 and it goes full screen. You can do this with any window that can be resized. Alt-F11 restores it back.
