When I have errors after running make (c++ compile), there are odd characters next to some of the words. I beleive these are meant to be control characters to bold or underline certain words in the error message, but I have tried changing my terminal type around and have had no luck. I also can't figure out how to turn these characters off, though it would be nice if they worked.
I am ssh'ing in to the box with Putty. I am using the bash shell. This is a fedora 4 system.
Here is a screen shot (chars in red boxes):
Any suggestions/help appreciated!
