One thing that was not mentioned yet is the termcap or terminfo. mutt seems to be using ncurses, which in turn should support anything that termcap or terminfo supports. On my system, ncurses seems to use terminfo. Setting TERM=vt220 before invoking mutt looks different (black and white). I wonder if anyone developed a terminfo entry that would work with the advanced editor features of the C128 or 264 series machines. (Sorry, I had the CBM 720 for such a short time that I do not remember how advanced its editor was). But, at the same time I guess that the Commodore control codes are doing their best to be incompatible with the rest of the word. It starts from the <home> and <cursor down> control codes that everyone else interprets as XON/XOFF. Marko Message was sent through the cbm-hackers mailing listReceived on 2015-01-05 08:00:04
