Surely someone somewhere has had this problem. I am
on a HP-UX 10.20 PA2.0. I have tried switching my
stty settings to just about everything possible and
I always have the same problem. I have not gotten a
single email on this. Please just email me and tell
me to shut up! Please read on :
** Previous post **
When I enter shell mode (I'm using ksh) if I start a
program that has lots of output, I can't break it
or move my cursor around until the program ends. Its
almost like xemacs is waiting for the shell to take a
breath before it will interrupt it.
ie. If I pull a Homer and do "tar x" instead of a "tar t",
I can press ^C^C and the screen freezes and I won't see anything
until the find command finishes. But, when the screen finally
refreshes, the find command was allowed to run to completion.
Depending on the tarball, this could be a very bad thing!
Then the ^C^C goes thru and I see a two command lines.
That's just a little too late! This is happens with the latest
release xemacs (21.1) and all betas I've used. This never happened
Or: If I do a "tar t" and I want to start scrolling thru the
output before the command finishes; as soon as I press a key
the output freezes until the find finishes. And (say I pressed
page up) the page up takes place from the bottom of the output
and not where I actually pressed the key.
This problem isn't there in telnet or rsh. It is there in
rlogin and shell.
If this is a FAQ or documented somewhere, just let me know.
