Hello, I am using TeraTerm as my preffered terminal. Though I have a small discontent, the Backspace character is captured in the log file "as is" instead of correcting the input line thus cluttering the logfile sometimes beyond any recognition. Also this is somehow concatenating the inputted lines making the capture reading a real pain. I understand that this might be viewed by somebody as a feature since the "whole" input is captured but an option to actually correct the inputted line would be very useful. Thanks,

Ady

I guess you are logging with binary flag. You can log without binary flag, and with plaintext flag.

But these options are only suppress output particular(e.g. control-sequences) characters. It doesn't revert the already outputed characters.

If you want to get the displayed screen log, File'-Replay log' the binary log and Edit'-Select all' and Edit'-Copy'.
