STTY_FROM_DEFAULTS(1)       General Commands Manual      STTY_FROM_DEFAULTS(1)



NAME
       stty_from_defaults  - set terminal editing characters from the defaults
       database

SYNOPSIS
       stty_from_defaults

AVAILABILITY
       This command is available with the software installation option.  Refer
       to for information on how to install optional software.

DESCRIPTION
       stty_from_defaults is a utility provided with the SunView environment.

       stty_from_defaults  sets the three editing characters (to erase a char-
       acter, erase a word, and kill a line) according to the choices in  your
       defaults  database.  It does not set any other tty options.  If you run
       stty(1V) in your  .login  or  rc.local  files,  you  may  want  to  run
       stty_from_defaults  immediately  after it.  This will override any set-
       tings of sttyerase, sttywerase, or sttykill, so that you will have  the
       same character-editing behavior with SunView application programs.

       To  specify  the  editing  characters  stty_from_defaults will set, run
       defaultsedit(1) and select the "Text" category.  The editing characters
       are  called  Edit_back_char,  Edit_back_word, and Edit_back_line.  Type
       the value you want to the right of each item.  To specify CTRL-X,  type
       `X'-- that is, the three characters `\', `^', and `X'.  To specify DEL,
       type `?'.

       If you do not specify your own values,  the  default  values  are  DEL,
       CTRL-W, and CTRL-U, respectively.
