It'd be useful to get some feedback on whether the alias for changing ther TERM setting+running wyrd in MacOSX terminal i) works for everyone, and ii) is a good/wise way to do it. I'm no UNIX expert. The current form of the alias is:
alias wyrd='OLDTERM=$TERM;export TERM=xterm-color;wyrd;export TERM=$OLDTERM'
If your shell is bash, you can use:
alias wyrd='TERM="xterm-color" wyrd'
(Reference) That will execute wyrd with the TERM you want, and it will reset to its previous value after wyrd finishes. --JamesRifkin 12:06, 15 Jun 2005 (EDT)
Ouch! I should have tested that. The first thing I thought of worked, so I didn't bother looking into it any more. I'll test your version when I'm back on my Mac, and then update the page --MishaDunn 10:17, 17 Jun 2005 (EDT)
OK, that worked fine! I've fixed the main page. Thanks for the hint! --MishaDunn 16:20, 17 Jun 2005 (EDT)
