53. Flow Control

Terminals that use XON/XOFF flow control can cause problems with GNU Emacs users. This file contains Emacs Lisp code that makes it easy for a user to deal with this problem, when using such a terminal.

To invoke these adjustments, a user need only invoke the function enable-flow-control-on with a list of terminal types specified in the initialization file. As arguments, give it the names of one or more terminal types in use by that user which require flow control adjustments. Here's an example:

  (enable-flow-control-on "vt200" "vt300" "vt101" "vt131")

Portability note: This uses (getenv "TERM"), and therefore probably won't work outside of UNIX-like environments.
