as i recall, mr. sheer had the source online for critique and i
asked him what "rute" was in "R ute U sers T utorial and E
xposition" and he just sent me a smiley.

i'm guessing it's a homonym with a spelling different enough to
make googling much simpler. hmm?

What TERMINAL TYPES are available for "export TERM=xyz"?  Look in
/etc/terminfo or /etc/termcap and pick one similar to your
terminal emulator's capabilities. Common ones are "linux" (for
console), "xterm", "vt102" and "rxvt". See "man terminfo" or "man
termcap" if you're determined to learn the nitty-gritty.
