Description Nalin Dahyabhai 2004-08-25 15:37:58 EDT
When invoked with the -C flag to convert terminfo sources to the
termcap format, tic converts "%%" to "%%%".  Because both termcap and
terminfo use "%%" as an escape for a single "%", I think this is
incorrect.  This happens to the tvi921 terminal definition, for example.

will fix (thanks).
Comment 2 Thomas E. Dickey 2004-09-02 16:37:41 EDT
I fixed this (one-liner) in my 20040828 patch.
Comment 3 Petr Rockai 2005-02-28 03:46:45 EST
Nalin, i would appreciate if you could try if the bug is really fixed in new 
version, so i can either close the bug or go figuring my way around it... 
Comment 4 Thomas E. Dickey 2005-11-13 19:07:23 EST
It's in ncurses 5.5 anyway (perhaps Nalin will respond someday).
Comment 5 Nalin Dahyabhai 2005-11-14 14:29:37 EST
Oops, yes, 5.5 appears to be doing the right thing here, thanks!

Leaving open because we haven't got 5.5 in Raw Hide yet.
Comment 6 Petr Raszyk 2005-11-21 03:39:55 EST
I will upgrade and test ncurses this week.

Sorry, I am too late.
