Mapping Keys: Some characters seem to lose high bit. 17 Years, 1 Month ago  
When I try mapping a key to output a character greater than hex 7F, it seems to drop the high bit. Example 9B becomes 1B. This happens even though I selected the "output is: 8 bit" radio button.

For the heck of it, I tried outputing a hex 80 and sure enough it output a hex 00. I'm using verion 2.13.

I'm trying to replace our old telnet client. If I can get mapping to work then our old telnet client is toast!

Below is the results of the "stty -a" command:

$ stty -a
speed 38400 baud;
rows = 24; columns = 80; ypixels = 0; xpixels = 0;
eucw 1:0:0:0, scrw 1:0:0:0
intr = ^c; quit = ^; erase = ^?; kill = ^u;
eof = ^d; eol = <undef>; eol2 = <undef>; swtch = <undef>;
start = ^q; stop = ^s; susp = ^z; dsusp = ^y;
rprnt = ^r; flush = ^o; werase = ^w; lnext = ^v;
-parenb -parodd cs8 -cstopb -hupcl cread -clocal -loblk -crtscts -crtsxoff -parext
-ignbrk brkint ignpar -parmrk -inpck -istrip -inlcr -igncr icrnl -iuclc

-tostop echoctl -echoprt echoke -defecho -flusho -pendin iexten
opost -olcuc onlcr -ocrnl -onocr -onlret -ofill -ofdel tab3

Thanks in advance for any suggestions.

George, Absolute does not do anything to strip off the high bit of mapped keys. The condition you describe would seem to indicate a problem with your stty settings (cs or istrip), but they look ok to me.

Does your current telnet application work ok in this envoronment?? If so, could you do an stty in your existing telnet program and post the results here?

Also, can you send me an AbsoluteTelnet config (.tnt) file with your key definitions in it so I can take a look?

What type of host is this, anyway?

Thanks,

Brian
