From: Simon Cozens Date: 11:42 on 12 Aug 2003 Subject: Unix terminal settings Fuck them, outdated evil fucking things from the 1970s. Terminal.app tells me that "backspace sends delete", but does it? Well, that depends on your terminal type, your termcap settings, and the phase of the fucking moon. At least I get to choose between whether my screen fills up with useless ^H signs or ^? signs, but it always seems to want to send precisely the control code that doesn't bloody well delete characters. And dammit, no, stty doesn't make things magically wonderful again, with its pile of curious and insane options and control settings. Bunch of fucking arse.
