Description Andy Ruse 1999-11-18 04:51:27 UTC
Cannot type a capital C at bash command line.  If I try to type a C, the
next character is quoted and doesn't print, plus I get an alert beep.  I
can type any other characters.  It only happens with one of my logins.  It
is probably not a problem in the user .bashrc or .bash_profile files b/c
more than one user is using a copy of the same files, but only one of them
gets this error.  I can type the C in any other shell

I've tried this on a large number of computers, without seeing this problem
I suspect your local config files (.bashrc, .bash_profile, .inputrc, ...) are
messed up. Maybe someone is playing a practical joke on you by loading an
altered keymap. (Check your PATH settings - maybe someone put /home/someone/bin
in your path before /usr/bin or something - that could cause a perfectly normal
.bashrc to mess up...)
