I have just discovered that there seems to be a bug
in /etc/termcap. I don't know these termcap things well,
but like to inform you anyway:
I have discovered this on RedHat Linux 5.0 and 6.0.
Currently I have just access to RedHat Linux 5.0, there the
file has version 9.12.0.
Ok, now to the bug. It's in the "klone+sgr" line:
# Highlight controls corresponding to the ANSI.SYS
# console drivers for Intel boxes obey these. Makes the
# about \E[11m as klone+acs. True ANSI would have rmso=\E
# but this isn't a documented feature of ANSI.SYS.
klone+sgr|attribute control for ansi.sys displays:\
Here, in the line
there should be as=\E[11m instead as=\E11m. Just my idea.
I was doing some color-enhancements on the linux-console
and found out the error while having problems with the
enhancements. After setting as=\E[11m all worked well...
BTW, my console now looks cool with the color
enhancements. man-pages have the important parts in "white-
on-red" and the less command uses "yellow-on-blue" for
status info. I am having much more fun with the console -
maybe this is worth to implement into further RHL releases.
If you like to have it, just gimme a short mail.
I will inform firstname.lastname@example.org, the maintainer
of /etc/termcap as well.
Informing the maintainer of /etc/termcap is the Right Thing To Do
