Thanks for your reply.
I'm using rxvt. I use the following in cygwin.bat:
bash --login -i -c 'rxvt -geometry 80x29 -sb -sl 10000 -bg Black -fg
green -bd LightSeaGreen -fn Courier -font 7x15'
I've tried setting
term=builtin_xterm -> bad characters when using cursor, no
backspace=delete to previous line as in vim set backspace=2, no info
telling me which mode I'm in.
term=ansi, backspace=2 -> no mode info, backspace deletes but screen
doesn't show deletions until next insert (annoying, not workable)
If there are any cygwin users on XP who have a nicely working vi, please
let me know what your settings are.
