As I mentioned in the gdb thread, gdb actually works properly when run within pbterm. That is so helpful to me. I wonder if other ncurses-based programs also work within pbterm? I'll have to try and see.

Unfortunately, I'm rather sure that they won't work since this isn't a real terminal emulator. The program basically just prints out what it gets from the program run and doesn't have any special treatment for terminal escape sequences, sorry:-( Would be an interesting excercise to extend it to emulate e.g. a VT100...

I'm actually astonished that gdb works well enough, given that it seems to be linked against the ncurses library (at least my desktop version). Perhaps you just didn't use anything in it that would have send escape sequences?

Best regards, Jens

I think you're right about it not using any special escape sequences. gdb is very much like an ordinary shell, in that it doesn't need any editing capabilities. You enter a command and new stuff gets printed out.

For fun, I tried running vi within pbterm. It was a mess, of course, as expected.

I deinitely would have been very astonished if it had worked. But you know where to find a hopefully usable vi version for the 623 if you need it;-)

Yes, I had installed it a few weeks ago. It works nicely, considering that you have to use the software keyboard. I prefer using vi or vim from a remote connection since it's easier to type that way, but it's good to have a local version if necessary.

Thank you!

I just want to say one big THANK YOU!
I confirm that it works like a charm on Touch Lux 2 (626)!

Thank you, it's nice to know that it also works properly on the 626. So I guess I can add that to the documentation;-)

Best regards, Jens
