- Subject: terminal escape codes
I have a program that will connect to another host via telnet and
work like a terminal emulator. This works fine in Linux, but under
cygwin, when the host sends out the vt220 command <ESC>(B cygwin
apparently doesn't know how to handle this escape code, and it ends up
displaying the B on the screen,
In Linux if I type "echo ^[(Btest" at a command prompt it comes back
as "test", but if I do the exact same thing at a cygwin prompt it
comes back as "Btest"
Does anyone know a simple way around this? like modifying /etc/termcap?
Thanks in advance.
