Unix on Mac

Simple Q here.

What GOOD telnet programs are out there for MAC.
I use this one that can't utilize the VI editor.
I don't know why.

Thankx for your help in advance.

Power Uh...

...DIEZEL, if you're on OS X, Terminal.app is the best game in town. When you say "telnet app," what do you mean specifically? To my way of thinking, any terminal is as good as another when it comes to telnet.

When you're logged in to the remote machine, type this:
echo $TERM

If the remote machine doesn't understand your terminal type, vi won't be able to "find it's way around your screen"...

You could always fall back on "export $TERM=vt100" before you run vi... see if that helps.

.... if you are a KSH user.

Ahh, I guess I do forget that shells other than sh/ksh/bash exist, or should for that matter Smilie

That should work in any semi-modern Bourne (/bin/sh) shell or variant (bash, ksh, zsh, etc...)...

Oh, and I made a typo above. It should be:
export TERM=vt100
(TERM, not $TERM)
