What I mean by that is when a program is running (let's say, telnet), any inputted text gets lost when something is written on the screen. For example, on a chat server,
> Hey, I'd like to ask y
Suddenly I receive a string, and now my screen looks like this
> Hey, I'd like to ask yHey, what's up?
I can still continue to write and hit return to successfully send the string, but I'd like to have my input move down like so
Hey, what's up?
> Hey' I'd like to ask y
How can I do that? I use bash and lxterminal
So here's a quick and dirty solution: anytime your input gets lost, press
^R to recover it.
