Description Philip Rowlands 2001-05-24 08:07:56 EDT
I'm using RH 7.1, with all errata applied. My shell is /bin/tcsh, and I'm
having problems with the End key inside xterm. Home works as expected.

To reproduce, set shell to /bin/tcsh, and start xterm.
The exact problem is exhibited as follows:
("_" is the cursor)
% abcdefg_	(HOME)
% _abcdefg	(END)
(terminal bell beeps)
% ~_abcdefg
% echo $TERM
% infocmp xterm | grep kend
  kend=\E[4~, kent=\EOM, kf1=\EOP, kf10=\E[21~, kf11=\E[23~,
% bindkey | grep ^end
end            -> end-of-line

I think this is caused by a recent change, because I can ssh to a RH 7.0
box and everything works fine.

by removing the KANJI hacks this allowed some codes to get through to allow the
end key (and others to work).

Thanks for the bug report.
