Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 84640
more to remote binary files corrupt xterm console integrity
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:38:05 EDT
Description of problem:
xterm text becomes trash after reading binary files with more. Red Hat 8.0 more
doesn't read binaries but when using rlogin to log into a remote system and do
more to the binary file (i.e. a compiled c file) it migh not recognize it as
binary; like Red Hat more; and it will read it any way; then xterm characters
become random even if you log out of the system.
That problem happen to me while using a remote solaris system.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. rlogin into remote machine (Sun or HP)
2. more a binary file
Random characters written into console.
Should be coherent information all over console.
