rshell paste

Post by smhodge » Mon Dec 16, 2019 8:43 pm

Another rshell issue. I can't get paste mode to paste. I get the prompt ok, but Ctrl-V leaves a single funny little square mark and Shift-Ins does nothing. Shift-Ins works fine if I use a PuTTY session. Thanks, Steve

Yeah - Entering Control-V just sends the Control-V character to the REPL.

You need to use the PASTE command from whatever terminal program you're using. For example, on my MacBook I can use Command-V to paste and it pastes properly.

In a Bash shell it's ctrl-shift-v.

I'm using Windows command prompt (cmd.exe) to open rshell. Both Ctrl-V & Shift-Ins work directly in the command prompt window. They also work when rshell is opened in that window (to paste directly into rshell). They just don't work in paste mode of <repl>.
