accidental use of 'bind' command I was working on getting a TCP connection working, and decided to use the command "bind tcp socket" as root.

...and now I can't use the 't' or 's' keys in bash. And the man page for bind is rather cryptic so I really have no idea how to go about fixing this. Grr....

does anybody have any idea how I can get my keys back? I'm running RHEL. In bash whenever you try typing these keys it gives a system beep (I havn't gotten around to turning that off yet).

Try a
man -k bind

I think you might have gotten the "wrong bind"
there ... most likely what you got was the bash-
built-in that redefines keys.

Theoretically closing that shell (logout/login if
it's a full-screen session) should set it straight.
