I’ve never used the mouse with the terminal, but I’m not sure why…
I was just using GDB under
-tui mode (text user interface) and thinking it could be improved by clicking.
Normally I’m a keyboard/shell person, but debugging is one of those cases where I feel a mouse could really help. There is a lot of state – drilling through an object graph, setting breakpoints and watch points, moving through the call stack, etc.
(This was after using Eclipse, and Eclipse crashed…)
So then I did some googling, and found zsh has some mouse support! This works!
wget http://stchaz.free.fr/mouse.zsh . ./mouse.zsh zle-toggle-mouse
tmuxwithout any config changes
Does emacs have mouse support through a terminal? Do you use it? I’m a vim user, but I would expect emacs to be the terminal program with support, if any.
Ah, now I see that
set mouse=a works in vim! Although I’m not sure if I would ever use this. But Iw ould use it if GDB supported it.
Anyway I’m interested in any experience with the mouse over a terminal.
