Begone, trailing spaces!
# Feb 3, 2009
I read my work email with mutt
on a Solaris 9 box. For a while it's been irritating me that when you attempt to cut
and paste, it will include trailing spaces on each line instead of stopping at the last "real" character. Some Googling suggested this was because of the lack of the BCE attribute in my xterm-color
terminfo definition. Rather than
learn how to compile terminfo entries (I've done it before, but I don't want to learn again!), I took the lazier approach:
from a Fedora 8 box into /home/johnlev/.terminfo/s/
, and start mutt
set appropriately. Now I can cut and paste sanely again.
