  • I just noticed the mouse events section in .joerc and it works in xterm but not in aterm. :-(

    now how do I find out what control sequences the mouse events create in aterm?

    Is there some tool like xev but for the console which just echoes back the control sequences to the screen? I tried to write a little python script but the mouse events don't seem to come in via stdin, they must go somewhere else.

    also it would be cool to have such a feature built into joe: start joe with say 'joe -echo' and it just echoes back to the console in the same notation like in .joerc what it gets from stdin and from  whereever the mouse events come out.

    • You usually need to send some control sequence to the terminal emulator to enable the mouse events.  After they are enabled, you usually can just type 'cat' and see them.

      Complain to the aterm maintainers that they should use 'xterm' control sequences :-)
