[DragonFlyBSD - Bug #2397] (Feedback) xterm window content cleared after man(1) exit
Issue #2397 has been updated by John Marino.
Status changed from New to Feedback
This patch fixes the issue for me:
I touched /usr/src/lib/libnurses/libncurses/Makefile after applying it, then ran "make -j 8 quickworld && make installworld".
After that, man(1) and the pagers don't restore the screen after running.
If you confirm, I'll commit the patch.
Bug #2397: xterm window content cleared after man(1) exit
Author: Francois Tigeot
Starting with commit 3ac91e86fba7d34199699a87e1ff109aacc8eec4 "ncurses: move USE_GETCAP, update README files", xterm now clears its window when the end of a man page is reached and the man(1) program exits.
The behavior makes it impossible to read a complete man page without piping the output to less(1), which is very annoying.
setting TERM=cons25 in xterm can be used as a workaround but breaks curse-based applications.
