Re: plink -m script and cursor control
There's no escape processing in `-m' script files; the file contents are
passed verbatim to the server. So if you really want a backspace, you'll
have to arrange that you have a literal backspace in your file.
I'd be surprised if a backspace did anything useful in a `-m' script,
anyway. The contents of that file are a command that's passed to the
server; that's not equivalent to you typing the same characters in an
interactive session (you should use Plink's standard input for that).
Even the fact that some servers permit carriage returns in this command
is a server implementation quirk, not something to be relied on.
