Re: Help with solaris testing

Hi Mark, thanks, and sorry for not replying sooner.  Only now
I came back to the issue.

Hmm, not really.

 -bash-3.2$ /usr/bin/stty -a
 opost -olcuc onlcr -ocrnl -onocr -onlret -ofill -ofdel tab3

I just found a workaround.  Overriding the stty settings expect does on
the pty used in spawn's,

 proc default_gdb_start { } {
  global stty_init
  set stty_init "<the stty -a settings of my terminal>"


... makes the issue go away.

This bit here

 "Internally, spawn uses a pty, initialized the same way as the userâs tty.   
 This is further initialized so that all settings are âsaneâ (according to   

The latter seems to indicate where the problem is:

On solaris:
 pedro@opensolaris:~/orlando/gdb/multi_process/build-solaris/gdb$ /usr/bin/stty
 speed 38400 baud; -parity
 rows = 34; columns = 118; ypixels = 0; xpixels = 0;
 swtch = <undef>;
 brkint -inpck -istrip icrnl -ixon ixoff imaxbel onlcr onocr tab3 echo echoe echok echonl echoctl echoke iexten

On linux:
 speed 38400 baud; line = 0;
 -brkint -imaxbel iutf8

Probably, passing -nottyinit to spawn would "fix" it too.

Anybody seen this before?  What's the correct fix for this?
