Description Francisco Calafat 2003-05-16 11:59:33 EDT
Description of problem:
Supposedly, telnet options -8 and -L should change the 8-bit/7-bit mode and
force sending TELNET BINARY option. They do neither.
Also, -7 option is not documented in the man page.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
# telnet -8
telnet> set options on
telnet> open REMOTEHOST

==> TELNET BINARY option is never sent; the same with -L. Actually, as binary is
the default mode, this isn't changed either.
