in reply to problem: emacs interactive shell and cpan

I am not sure if I understand you right, but for a similar problem I used this little snippet for XEmacs:

;; stop ^M from appearing in shell window (add-hook 'comint-output-filter-functions 'shell-strip-ctrl-m nil t)

    I assumed wrongly that the problem was both with emacs and xemacs and used emacs as the generic term. But emacs works as I want while xemacs does not. So all what I said before and below do apply only for xemacs

    What I want is ^M to wrap the caret to the beginning of the line, so that the material that come after the ^M overwrites the previous material. Anyway the code of shell-strip-ctrl-m is certainly a good starting point. Thanks.
