Software :: Terminal And Konsole Windows Show Strange Characters

Oct 1, 2009

When I open a terminal or konsole window, output (either STDOUT or STDERR) sometimes contains funny characters instead of something meaningful. Can someone explain how I might correct this situation?

One very repeatable example involves using the manual page command

man set... man page output ...upstart - event-based init daemon

In my copy of the output, there are several problems in the very first screen. In the synopsis section, there is "{ value | ?value? ..." Replace the '?' with a lower-case-a-under-a-carat character (a-hat).
I suspect the garble character might be apostrophe in real life.

In other places, I see var?/able or how?/ever or trans?/action where the '?' is again a-hat and the '/' represents end of line or newline. I suspect the garble character might be a hyphen in real life.

All of this suggests that there is a conflict between the character stream written to STDOUT by the man command and the character-display settings (is that "code page" or similar?) of the specific terminal or konsole in use.

In specific, I use konsole v1.6.6 from KDE v3.5.10. In general, I'm running Ubuntu Hardy (v8.04.3 LTS).

OpenSUSE :: Vi Editor Ctrl-g Does Not Display Cursor Line Number

Aug 5, 2010

On Solaris UNIX, pressing Ctrl-g displays the line number for the cursor position.

i.e. line 1 0f n* --0%--

But, on suse Ctrl-g on displays the percentage only, not the hard line number

i.e. n* lines --8%--

Anyway I can make vi display hard line just like Solaris?

General :: Regular Expression To Match Unspecified Number Of Characters Until A '>'?

Jul 7, 2010

I'm attempting to search through a rather large assortment of html files created in Word using 'save as html'. what I'm trying to do is find and delete these tags (they're causing browsers to display black diamonds with white question marks):

<span style='mso-spacerun:yes'> </span> Tags contain from 1 to 4 spaces between opening and closing. I get positive results from this:

grep <span style='mso-spacerun:yes'> filename.html but once I attempt to tell it to match any number of characters up until the next '>' symbol, it tells me I'm using an invalid regex: grep <span style='mso-spacerun:yes'>[^>]+> filename.html

I've been nose-deep in regex tutorials for the past day or so, and I'm still not understanding why this doesn't work. If I put the pattern (without backslashes) into a separate file and use `grep -f patternfile filename.html`, I get no error but no matches either. So far as I can figure, the above regex boils down to:
Match the string "<span style='mso-spacerun:yes'>", followed by any number of characters that are not a ">", followed by a ">". If someone could tell me where I'm going wrong with this,
