More trivial problems, i am afraid.
What is the significance/use of the TERM environment variable. If i leave
it as linux, then I get problems telnetting into a SGI Irix sys (says
linux unknown). If i set it to vt100, this difficulty disappears (are
there any other implications).
Also, when in an xterm, i can backspace within a line in vi running
through telnet on the SGI. In a regular terminal, this does not work. (I
can always backspace in a locally run vi).
Just curious really
