Command line showing strange fonts.
Posted on 2004-04-22
I screwed up something on a remote server and I haven’t a clue how to fix it. Long story short I was using cat to view a file which just kept on going and going and going so understandably I tried using Ctrl+C (quite a few times) which didn't help. Now whenever I connect back to the server I see, now pardon my lack of professionalizm here but this is the best way to describe it as "squiggly wigglies". My coworker suggested using Ctrl+U or Ctrl+Q or Ctrl+O... (yes we ended up trying the entire alphabet including Ctrl+P and Ctrl+D which logged us out).
Please help, I'm desperate here, as I really need to get back on that server.
