telnet-interpret-output: preference variable
Default value: 0xfef
In a Telnet buffer, Epsilon can look for certain escape sequences and
cursor positioning, and interpret them, translating them into coloring
for instance. Bits in this variable say which sorts of sequences to
look for; add them to select the rules you want.
0x1 makes Epsilon look for underlining that uses
backspacing, such as
_ Ctrl-h k to produce an underlined K; this
is common in man pages and similar.
0x2 makes Epsilon look for bare Ctrl-m characters used
to indicate overtyping and remove the text to be overwritten. Some
progress messages use this technique.
0x4 makes Epsilon look for ANSI escape sequences that
generate colors. Epsilon only recognizes certain patterns of escape
sequences that color specific sections of output.
0x8 makes Epsilon look for some uses of backspacing to
produce bold characters.
If you've scrolled back in the buffer, Epsilon can jump to the end of
the buffer whenever new output from the remote system arrives to show
you the new output. Set the
0x10 bit to enable this.
0x20 makes Epsilon delete any NUL characters or
characters with ASCII code 1 from telnet output.
0x40 makes Epsilon delete certain sequences defined for
the xterm terminal emulator.
0x80 makes Epsilon look for certain uses of backspacing
to overwrite text with new text.
0x100 makes Epsilon interpret Unicode UTF-8 encoding in
