Re: Handle control characters in ssh shell server

Hi Prapatsorn,

This has to do with the terminal encoding. By default, libssh sends
"xterm" (or was it "vt100"?) and so the remote shell is expected to send
xterm/vt100 control characters. If your local terminal does not
understand them, you have to do the conversion.

I'm unfortunately not very familiar with terminal codes parsing, and we
always avoided dealing with the content of terminal/X11 channels,
however if you have good ideas I'll take them.
