Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 5392
String actions in ibm_hosts cause the keyboard to lock
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:37:51 EDT
Having string actions in /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/x3270/ibm_hosts
cause the keyboard to lock up - you must use x3270 special
action 'Reset' to wake it up again. This effectively
renders all ibm_hosts scripting useless.
Example ibm_hosts (doesn't work):
test primary test.xxx.fi test\n
Example 2 (doesn't work either):
test primary test.xxx.fi String(test) Enter()
Example 3 (does work):
test primary test.xxx.fi Reset()
This is probably related to the other x3270 problem I have
There were no problems using x3270 3.0 source code.
Does this problem still exist in x3270-3.2.13?
Unfortunately, x3270 is no longer used here so I can't test it. :-(
This problem still exists in the Red Hat Linux 7.3 version of x3270-3.2.18-2 and
will test against the 8.0.x betas but I do not see changes large enough to fix this.
I'm using minor variations of examples 1 and 2 to log on to our MP3000 with x3270-3.2.19-4
