Description skopp 1999-07-08 12:00:25 UTC
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 standard. Most # console drivers for Intel boxes obey these. Makes the same assumption # about \E[11m as klone+acs. True ANSI would have rmso=\E [27m, rmul=\E[24m, # but this isn't a documented feature of ANSI.SYS. klone+sgr|attribute control for ansi.sys displays:\ :S2=\E[11m:S3=\E[10m:ae=\E[11m:as=\E11m:mb=\E[5m:\ :md=\E[1m:me=\E[0;10m:mk=\E[8m:mr=\E[7m:\ :..sa=\E[0;10%?%p1%t;7%;%?%p2%t;4%;%?%p3%t;7%;%?%p4% t;5%;%?%p6%t;1%;%?% :se=\E[m:so=\E[7m:ue=\E[m:us=\E[4m: Here, in the line :S2=\E[11m:S3=\E[10m:ae=\E[11m:as=\E11m:mb=\E[5m:\ ------ 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 here.
