| What's the proper terminal type for running tcsh under Cygwin 1.0?
| term=linux doesn't support character insert (type something on the

| C-a, then start typing. The text doesn't move over for the new
| characters.) or proper line wrapping (run "ls -l | less". Extra newlines

| beginning of line properly. I have prompt="%S%s%m:kelem:%! ".  If I type
| "aC-a" (where C-a is control-a), the cursor properly moves to the
| beginning of the line (the character "a"). Similarly, typing "a bC-a"
| also works.  However, typing "a b cC-a" moves the cursor to the space
| before the "a".

Maybe term=vt100 ?
