Description rcarpen 1999-06-16 19:59:36 UTC

there is a problem with term=xterm when connecting from
a solaris7 machine.  to reproduce the problem, simply
log in from a solaris7 xterm to a redhat 6 system and then
do (for example) man tcsh.  the hightlights and underlines
are completely messed up.  another annoyance:  "less" leaves
the terminal with reverse video highlihts.

set term=xterm-color

fixes the problem.

this worked fine under redhat5.2 to the same solaris7 host.

set term=xterm-color does fix the display problems.  Can we fix the
source of this problem though?  It is not fun to configure every
server to set term=xterm-color.  Also,  ^O still does not work in
pine, pico, and other fullscreen apps.
