We all had this problem once of twice.
When you cat a Binary file sometimes the shell gets all scrambled and nothing can be read.
And the new input you write down gets messed up aswell. So the charset has changed.
Well, I tryed to fix this with some Exports back to UTf-8 but it didnt same goes for restarting the shell or anything like that.
Well, I always did reboot.. But now I cant..
So, well is there a Way to FIX it instead of working around it?
It's odd but if you hit CTRL+V then CTRL+O then Enter, it will go back to normal (at least, it does for me).
Thanks that works XD
Now, let's figure out why that fixes it.
CTRL+O switches to the standard character set. I'm not sure what CTRL+V does in this case.
