You're absolutely right.  I use the construct regularly, and perhaps
submitted it to you that way.  I simply failed to read it carefully.

Still curious about Phil's config.status.

Does IZ approve?

2000-10-25 (2.8.4dev.13)
> the remainder (most of the functional changes in this patch) from IZ:
* use new macros LYCharINTERRUPT1, LYCharINTERRUPT2 and LYCharIsINTERRUPT() to
  make it simpler to find uses of ^C and ^G

(BTW, it appears that ^G has never worked on OS/390.  I habitually use 'z'
and never noticed it.  ^C is the same in ASCII and EBCDIC, 003.)

address@hidden:140$ echo "^G" | od -h
0000000000    2F  15

The EBCDIC ^G appears to be 0x2F.
