#1461 closed defect (fixed)

'Clear' escape sequence

Severity: minor Keywords:


This is a very minor issue, please disregard and close the bug if it 1) doesn't make sense, or 2) is completely wrong

In the "Customizing your Logon with /etc/issue" section of Chapter 3, there is a reference to the escape sequence used to clear the screen The book says "[c" however, this could be confusing to folks as this sequence is not what is shown in a file I create and then edit using standard vim.

I get "[[H[[2J" on an xterm and "[[H[[J" on a Linux console. I'm only mentioning this as some users may be looking for what is shown in the book and may not understand what is at the top of the file they created.
