F keys and mouse :-)

I can only agree with you that this is a very nice app. I t includes two major functions not curently pressant in terminal.app:

F keys
Mouse support.

in mc (midnight comander) there is support for both, however i can't get the pull down menus to work in emacs (both apples and xemacs from fink)

Not really menus

The menus you see in emacs and xemacs while within a shell aren't really menus at all. They don't do anything. They are a figure head line that's only purpose is to take up space.

Stick the following line in your dot emacs file (~/.emacs) to recover this lost line of space.

(menu-bar-mode (if window-system 1 -1))

That line will turn the menubar off if you are within a shell, and turn it back on if you were to have emacs connect to an X server.

You're kidding, right? Have you ever used the X version of emacs? They're definitely menus.
