in reply to problem: emacs interactive shell and cpan

This is a well known problem. A quick glance at the newsgroup finds some things:
  • Use the tshell
  • Set up correct terminfo (and hope that the program you use looks at it).
  • Have a look at the eterm package in your distribution (I'm not sure if this is XEmacs only). This package contains the tshell and the doc says it's a realy ANSI terminal: * Uses standard ANSI (vt102) escape sequences.
  • Here is a longer discussion of the topic.
Good Luck!
