Re: piping escape into dosemu



Thanks all for your effort to help me!  I accidentally didn't reply to
the list, so here it is again:

It does.

So back to my original problem:  I want to achieve the same effect
that I can with

  dosemu -input 'thedosapp.exe\r\^['

The actual byte sequence that sh passes to dosemu as argument after -input is

  74 68 65 64 6f 73 61 70 70 2e 65 78 65 5c 72 5c 1b

I can get the exact same byte sequence with

  /bin/echo -n 'thedosapp.exe\r\['

For the keystroke command that's piped I need a newline at the end, so
I omit -n and use

  /bin/echo 'keystroke thedosapp.exe\r\^[' > dospipe

Everything gets through except for the ESC.  I guess this is the end
of the song.


Alain suggested later:

Unfortunately still no success.  I suspect the string that's piped is
parsed somewhat differently from the string that's passed on the
command line, and this can only be fixed in the source code.
