I know that. But since most DOS based BBS assumes that ESC [2J will move
cursor to the home position, and this will cause problems if it doesn't,
so I've changed this. May be I will add another resource for this. If
you can't wait, you can modify charproc.c yourself.

1. Ansi Color Xterm Problems

Hello All,

        I am having some problems with compiling the
Ansi based Color_xterm.  The compiler is dying out on me
on/in one of the Tekproc.c functions.  I don't know C well
enough to fix it myself.  I was wondering, tho, if anyone
has been able to get it to compile?  I'm not sure if it is
worth trying to sludge thru it to fix, if no one else has
gotten it to work.

Email or post replies, whatever suits you best.
