I came across a sentence in vimdoc:
Note: CTRL-S does not work on all terminals and might block further input, use CTRL-Q to get going again.
and using CTRL-S indeed hangs my vim. I was thinking that it was vims fault, since there was no problem when I used
C-x C-s in emacs nox. However, just now, when I was reading a man page and pressed
Ctrl-s, it hung
man as well (
less was the output pager).
So, can someone tell me what's happening?
The terminal emulators I've testd are
has this problem. A Ctrl+q unhangs the terminal in all the cases.
