xterm - how to disable eight-bit rewriting
How can I turn off eight bit mode in xterm?
After much searching and false accusations, I discovered that xterm
rewrites the sequence ]v (as well as other sequences). By default,
on SuSE linux (which I will shortly be abandoning), xterm translates
]v to o-umlaut (an o with two dots on it). By setting
in .Xdefaults, I have achieved that it "only" rewrites ]v to ](escape)v
(this, by the way, is also what rxvt does).
By modifying the xterm function HandleEightBitKeyPressed(), I have
gotten to the point where no re-writing happens. But that's tacky.
! the following three do not seem to turn off eightbit mode
! (which causes ]v to be converted to ]ESCv when typed rapidly)
(and reloading the rdb and starting a new xterm)
do not succeed in configuring this (in searching for a less tacky solution).
What is the best list to moan and complain about xterm?
