- Subject: text emacs issues and solution
I was having some trouble with text based emacs under cygwin.
The C-x C-c to exit was for some reason being interpreted as C-x C-g.
After some googling around I found that export CYGWIN=tty seemed to fix the key
sequence, however this also introduced new problems. ?Namely, after exiting
emacs my input is no longer echoed back and reset doesn't seem to work
either. I had about given up on it, but I started using screen for
copy and paste
and I found that while I was using screen emacs key bindings now
worked correctly and there was no weird side effects after leaving emacs as
before so I though I would post this really quick so that if/when others
have this problem they will have a better solution those I found.
