I was using broadcast command today and discovered either a bug, or at least unexpected behavior of dropdown list when Realtime mode is off.
I typed in the command that generates long output that is displayed 1 page at a time. Example of such command in Linux is man grep . To move forward and see the next page you press space on the keyboard. So I broadcasted single space to all open Tera Term windows. It worked, but did 2 unexpected things
- unlike any other command the space was not saved in commands history and was erased from input field right after clicking Submit. I ended up retyping it several times to move forward page by page.
- after submitting space entire history of commands disappeared and turned into long and empty dropdown list (see the image).
Then to exit from page by page view I had to enter "q". After broadcasting "q" the entire content of drop down list came back.
Looks like space is being truncated, but in fact I think it should be stored and treated as any other command.
