I've been messing about with FreeBSD lately, though mostly I use Mac OS X. I've grown accustomed to using "less" as a pager, generally preferring the manner in which it would make all the scrolled through crud vanish when I was done pawing about in it. But "less" didn't behave that way when telnet'd into the the FreeBSD boxes on the LAN - whatever got presented scrolled "up" into the terminal program's capture buffer.
After mucking with this for a couple of days, I believe the reason is that the termcap description of "xterm-color" in FreeBSD doesn't match the "xterm-color" terminfo description in either Mac OS X or Linux (which seem to be identical). In particular, the "ti" and "te" capabilities are null. Is this intentional or something that should be generically "fixed"? -- Walter M.
