theres a 'set markers' that defaults to yes. I edited it to no and, presto, no mo' '+' in the url strings. ---how you ever remembered the variable 'markers' is beyound me, but yup. anyway, with my konsole at std size, ~37x80, I moused dead-on the http string. same as before: the string showed up from the 'http://.....' to the eol. and when I clicked, I got garbage. wait, there's more. I blew up the konsole until it filled the entire screen. [i did this once before and got the right page.] it still worked. no '+' line break, but still. it's a bear to have to enlage the xterm/konsole just to read some mail, but it works with the two embedded urls that I've tried so far. why? dunno. > > > -- > Polytropon > Magdeburg, Germany > Happy FreeBSD user since 4.0 > Andra moi ennepe, Mousa, ... > _______________________________________________ > email@example.com mailing list > http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions > To unsubscribe, send any mail to "freebsd-questions-unsubscr...@freebsd.org" -- Gary Kline kl...@thought.org http://www.thought.org Public Service Unix Twenty-six years of service to the Unix community. _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "freebsd-questions-unsubscr...@freebsd.org"
