What about resetting?

Last night I was deleting some files from RedHat 5.2 and accidently
deleted the Package Manager. Ooops, I thought and backed up my scripts and
C++ programs and re-installed RedHat. This was not really a problem
because I have just got Linux and have nothing of any real importance on
there. However, if something like this happens again, is there a way of
replacing parts of the OS without re-installing it?

Cheers.

Yeah, the package manager :-).  If it's the package mamager you've
deleted then it's preobably quickest to reinstall.  You _can_ to do it
all by hand but it would probably work out no quicker.

1. /usr/bin/{reset,clear) - clear does not work even after reset

After spilling a binary file on an xterm screen, I run /usr/bin/reset to
clear things up (get normal character set back instead of the
hierglyphs).

But then /usr/bin/clear still is not working, and command
line editing is a bit flaky, too (for example, backspace does not remove
characters on the screen, just passes over them. They do get deleted
from the buffer, though).

I manually ran stty -a on a known good xterm and the bad xterm and
adjusted 2-3 settings that were different, but still no luck.

What else could it be?? Thanks ...
