The current manpage of script(1) says
"Certain interactive commands, such as vi(1), create garbage in the type-
script file. The script utility works best with commands that do not ma-
nipulate the screen. The results are meant to emulate a hardcopy termi-
nal, not an addressable one."
This patch fixes this issue by appropriately calling cfmakeraw.
Additional note: script(1) is currently able to record [-r] curses sessions perfectly; only the playback functionality [-p] needs to be fixed. To reproduce the problem, one may use the following program.
https://github.com/iiSeymour/game-of-life by GitHub user iiSeymour, which, in the words of the author, is
"a python implementation of Conway's Game of Life using the curses module with a small evolutionary twist."
This script was written for Linux; therefore, one must call "python gol.py" on FreeBSD to bypass the #!
. This patch is a duplicate of that submitted by me as a part of https://github.com/freebsd/freebsd/pull/433. This was done to maximize the chances of getting noticed. If this patch on Bugzilla is accepted, I will close the GitHub pull request, and vice versa.
. I submitted a similar patch for "scriptreplay(1)" from util-linux; it has now been merged by the maintainer of the project.
