ksh -o emacs and command-line editing problem

Post by ewe.. » Wed, 29 Sep 1999 04:00:00

My gut tells me that the following is a known ksh problem.

Occasionally while I am performing command line edits using the emacs
bindings, entering a control char to position the cursor results in the
control char being echoed to the command line. It's as if the shell gets
confused about whether it's in raw or cooked mode.

Are there any work-arounds to eliminate this problem? Suggestions?

System: Solaris 2.6
term: vt100, vt220

...and for what it's worth, MKS's NT port of ksh seems to have included
this problem/bug.

1. Q: Redefining the command line editing keys in ksh VISUAL=emacs

Hi all.

I'm using NCR/AT&T MP/RAS on a 486-based PC, and I'm currently into my
first customizing spree ;-) I'd really like to redefine the emacs/gmacs
set of command-line editing keys, but I can't seem to find anything
refering to this in the FM or the manpages. Is it at all possible, og did
I just miss something?

Eagerly awaiting information
