My previous query has aged a week without a reply...so here we go again:
How might one get a block style cursor using Linux 1.2.13? In particular,
I'd like to have the functionality (trivial to achieve with 4DOS) of
toggling between insert and overstrike mode for editing on the command
line. I realize that mode toggling may require some source code changes
to bash 1.14.5 since it doesn't appear to support overstrike mode unless
vi editing mode is enabled.
Anyway...once I hack the bash source...I'd like to have the CLI cursor
change to show the current editing mode.
On another topic, why doesn't Linux (at least under bash) support the
"shorthand" of "cd ..." (also available under DOS) for "cd ../.."?
Linux for fun, M$ for $$$...and the NFL for what really counts!
