Just posted some more terminal geekery on http://mosh.mit.edu -- I'd be interested how the Cygwin terminal does on the test cases shown there.

Mintty, badly. The first test gives no hat (or I just can't see it). The second causes it to get stuck in heiroglyphs. The third doesn't work correctly either. It looks like it prints xyz correctly, then jumps to the second line on screen and then continues from there.

The "cygwin bash shell" which uses cmd.exe does the first test correctly but similarly fails on the others.

Those test cases look useful -- Do you know of any more sets?

I'm writing a terminal emulator out of interest, in hopefully a cross-platform way. I'm personally frustrated by the existing ones.

Got any wish-list items for one?
