If he was using 1.5.2 or 2.0, then the constants should be in TERMIOS

There was a release which had a crippled set of constants in termios,
but I can't remember which one it was/find it.

At any rate, all the constants mentioned are in termios on the systems
I have access to in CVS at present.


  ... but I guess there are some things that are so gross you just have
  to forget, or it'll destroy something within you.  perl is the first
  such thing I have known.              -- Erik Naggum, comp.lang.lisp
