How does an end-of-file work

How does an end-of-file work

Post by Michael E. Stor » Sun, 22 Jul 2001 10:18:14

I thought a null byte was an EOF, but I've copied bytes from
/dev/rurandom into a file and the file contains several null bytes which
are not recognised as the EOF.  Can I get these bytes with a head or tail
command?  I know to get the last true byte, you have to do tail -c 2 not tail
-c 1 since -c 1 just gets the null EOF byte.



1. Does end-of-file (end-of-page) key work in Netscape 4.03 (LinuxDoes end-of-file (end-of-page) key work in Netscape 4.03 (Linux

For Netscape 4.03 (stand-alone) under Linux:

I have tried Ctrl-PageDown, Alt-PageDown, Ctrl-End,
Alt-End, Meta->  (Esc->) and many other keystroke combinations
to go the end of web page.

Is there a keystroke to do this that perhaps I haven't tried?

If not, is there a way to fix it perhaps with the addition
of a line in preferences.js or .Xdefaults ?

(Of course, I would like to be able to jump to the top of
the page, also.)

If it's not fixable in 4.03, do the latest versions fix this?
