to log into Linux machines. Now pstree supports a -G to use line drawing characters. This works under xterm but not under rxvt. How does one use line-drawing characters in rxvt?
You need a font that has the DOS/OEM characters instead of the standard codepage 1252 / ISO 8858-1 character set. If you search around there is a patched version of lucida console (called "lucida consoleP" or that has this. You also need to set TERM (-tn) to rxvt-cygwin-native I think.
