In reference to a BBoard posted that complained about SCORE-Emacs being too
slow even when the load was very low:
I just found out what the problem was. What happened to me was than
whenever I typed a command that would reposition the page (^O, or ^K for
example) the terminal would freeze for about 10-15 seconds. Of course I
blamed this on the system being slow. But what really happened was that
Score either sent a whole series of null characters, or a string of control
characters that effectively froze up the terminal. I made this discovery
by observing the CHAR-RECEIVE LED on my MODEM.
After much searching I isolated the following line in my Emacs.INIT file:
!* If the System doen't know what Baud Rate the terminal is using, !
!* set it to 1200 baud to avoid excessive padding. !
@:I*| 2 FS Echo Linesâ FS OSpeedâ"E 1200 FS OSpeedâ' | FS TTY Macroâ
FS TTY Initâ
I really don't have the foggiest idea what TECO is all about. I got this
line straight from the LEDIT init file at CMU! But just in case some other
poor slob is complaining, you will know what to tell them. --Shawn
