Xterm support path

    What ever became of the patch for Joe 2.8 that adds support for mouse control for Joe when running it under Xterm?


    Is this going to make it into a future version of Joe? It would be a nice addition.

      I haven't forgotten it: it's a huge patch which has both mouse support and improvements to the macro language.  I have lots of reviewing to do for it.

      The mouse thing reminds me of a bug: autoindent and ` mess up cut & paste.  I'd like to add a mode to xterm which causes drops to be delimited.

      Well, I've applied the patch.  The latest CVS now has Jesse McGrew's xterm mouse support.  One problem with it: when you select text with xterm in this mode you can not paste it to other windows.

      In the mean-time, couldn't we get a ^T option to turn-on/turn-off the '`' control metacharacter trigger mode?

      Don't get me wrong, I *LIKE* the "`" for typing hex, or decimal codes every now and then... but most of the time when I need to cut-n-paste lots of lines of bash, TeX, or sendmail's m4 files with loads of grave's, I >hate< to say this but... I'm forced to load vi. 

      ---And that's just sad when it's faster to save your file, load it in vi, do your paste, save out of vi, and reload it in joe.  (Rather than fix 5+ screwed up "`" marks)
