Subject [jira] Updated: (GSHELL-156) Disable system bell by default
Date Fri, 30 Jan 2009 01:15:59 GMT


Chris Custine updated GSHELL-156:

    Attachment: nobell.patch

This is a simple patch to disable the bell globally by default.  An alternative would be to
have a system prop so that someone could override this and enable it, although I am not sure
why anyone would want to.

> On WIndows, attempting to backspace at the beginning of a line causes the system bell
to sound, thereby knocking many a user off their chair.  I would recommend disabling this
for the sake of Windows users.  *nix systems and Mac OSX shells seem to disregard the system
bell commands by default so disabling the system bell in the ConsoleReader by default shouldn't
affect them adversely.
