xterm: why do I need to press Enter twice, in xterm?
Google turned up only one item about this, on a Cygwin mailing list, and there was no answer given in the follow-up posts.
If I launch an xterm, it pops up as it should. Now, at the command prompt there, if I hit ENTER, nothing happens. I have to hit ENTER a second time, to get the usual effect (a newline occurs).
Also, if I enter a command at the prompt, like:
Why is this? Can I make it not be like this? Annoying! :mad:
Thanks for any insight :)
Sorry Sasha, but I don't have that problem with cygwin at work. One setting when installing Cygwin is whether to use Unix newllines or Windows style newline / returns. Which did you opt for.
That is the only thing I can think of.
Hi Jim :)
Sorry if I mislead the reader, but Cygwin is not involved here in my scenario; only Slackware.
It was just that the only *reference* I located via Google, happened to be on a Cygwin mailing list.
I have cruised the xterm manpage several times, both for this issue, and just because I wanted to gather up all the other switched I am giving to my xterm when it starts; but I didn't note any particular stuff in the docs about CR/LF/newline.. Maybe I should look again?
NOTE: The xterm manpage is some 5000+ lines, so I may have missed something.
