aixterm - how to turn off auto-wraparound

Post by Andrew Daws » Wed, 19 Dec 1990 01:48:48

Does anyone know how to turn off the auto-wraparound feature when aixterm
starts up? I know I can use <CTRL>-middlebutton and uncheck it, but I can't
find a way of doing this either by a command line option or by an entry in
.Xdefaults. aixterm -keywords didn't seem to give a sensible option, nor did
the info explorer aixterm entry. I tried putting aixterm*autowrap: false in
.Xdefaults as a guess, but it didn't seem to do anything.

There seems to be a reverse wrap option, but that's a different thing

The reason I ask is that editing wide files in vi is next to impossible if
the lines wrap round.

Any pointers....?

1. Maddening loss of xterm's auto-wraparound under AIX

Help!  I keep losing auto-wraparound in my xterm and it's driving me nuts!

I'm running PC/Linux/XFree86v3.1.1 and displaying xterm from a remote
RS6000/AIX3.2/X11R5.  Whenever I run vi, or certain other
(curses-based?) terminal screen handling jobbies, I lose the
auto-wraparound.  Is there a way to fix this?  aixterm behaves the
same way!
