What is the path of least resistance to improve the terminal emulation and character display in my cygwin shell window or rxvt?
I use a commercial package for SSH called SecureCRT which comes with some fonts called "vt100" that have those nice ncurses line drawing characters in them. It also has what I assume to be the equivalent of a termcap entry for "linux." I am trying to get away from it however.
I tried to use 'rxvt -reverseVideo -fn "Terminal" -e bash' and run the ncurses-tests in /usr/bin/ncurses-test-dll/ and was unsatisfied with the results. I tried several other fixed width fonts that were by default on my system. I also tried just the regular cygwin.bat's terminal.
Perhaps someone has gotten cygwin shell or rxvt to emulate a linux terminal or xterm better before and can save me some headache?
