comment Is there a reason for ssh and sftp being so unintegrated?
My point is that merging sftp and ssh would be a significant pain, due to very different models of most everything. What they share is just the encryption layer.

@Ramesh: aha, Shift+W works with my version and saves the settings as default, restored at the next start! Please update your answer so that I could accept it :)

Hmm, my build of top does not seem to support it, though it reports version 3.2.8.

comment File weird character encoding
My suspicion is that you are not writing the repeat counts as numbers (printf("%d", count)), but write them as naked bytes. Try the | hexdump -C thing and check what characters come after aba.

comment File weird character encoding
What does locale say? What does your-program | hexdump -C say? How do you view the file? E.g. what does cat something.txt show you on the console?

comment Linux on a 286?
You can shoehorn Linux to run on very limited devices. But this is not going to be very useful as an e.g. desktop machine. Unless you state your goals it's hard to tell if 'Linux on 286' is viable for you.

Both answers were equally worthy; I'm accepting the answer of the user with less rep.
