Re: Vim and the navigating with arrow keys

KUDOS - I had the following setting in the registry:

      /usr/bin/inetd.exe      REG_SZ      binmode tty ntsec

Took out the tty and suddenly Vim works the way "one would normally expect"
it to.

Of course the above settings were "standard fare" for inetd installs
according to setup
instructions circa 2000-2001. They may still be - I don't know, haven't
looked. Anyhow,
do you know offhand if there is still any compelling reason to have tty in
the Cygwin
environment variable?

Thanks again.

Again, I cannot recreate this symptom.

How up-to-date are your other Cygwin packages? There have been termcap
and terminfo updates in the past several weeks. Did you install them?
Have you looked at you ~/.vimrc file lately to see if there's anything
odd there? Perhaps clearing your ~/.viminfo would help? Do you use the
"tty" option in your CYGWIN environment variable? I don't, so that
could conceivably be a source of the dissimilarity between Vim's
behavior on our respective systems.

There is no reason you should have to endure this misbehavior.

I surely would not put up with it.
