10.3: Prevent Terminal from clearing screen after commands
Authored by: sjmills on Nov 05, '03 09:23:21PM
One things is still annoying or wrong after changing to ANSI, vt100, or vt102: If you do top and it fills the window, then ^C to stop it, you end up with your prompt overwriting the left part of the last line, but the rest of the top results appear after the prompt. Any way to fix that?

Press ^L to refresh the screen afterwards. The vt100 terminal type doesn't support multiple screen buffers (which is basically waht this hint is disabling).

10.3: Prevent Terminal from clearing screen after commands

I'm using tcsh and have my TERM set to xterm-color and my LESS set to -X. Everything seems to work just perfectly, with coloring and the expected behaviors for programs running in both the Terminal.app and the X11.app. You might want to try similar settings and see if it works to your satisfaction.

Use q to exit top, not ^C
