Re: RXVT Problem with buffering of application output.

This almost makes rxvt un-usable. I am not saying this is a rxvt
problem. This could be the MS Windows problem. I just hope that
someone will come out with an intelligent solution.
As a user of Clearcase on Windows and Cygwin/Rxvt, while I understand
the problem partially (for example, typing cleartool will not give you a
prompt) I still use the Clearcase command line without much stress. I
simply do the individual cleartool commands without dropping into the
cleartool command prompt, such as:
$ cleartool lsview
$ cleartool checkout -nc <pname>
In fact I alias cleartool=ct so:
$ ct lsview
$ ct checkout -nc <pname>
and for many commands I wrap functions around them like lsview does an
ct lsview | grep "$@" and llview will do ct lsview -long "$@".
