Subject [jira] Commented: (GSHELL-156) Disable system bell by default
Date Fri, 30 Jan 2009 07:53:59 GMT


Chris Custine commented on GSHELL-156:

I hear you, I'm a Mac.  ;-)  I was just trying to fix this in ServiceMix 4 kernel (
but now I looked closer and you are right about the terminals, some just have audible bell
switched off by default.  I'm fine with closing this as "won't fix" if you want to leave it
as is.

> 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.
