nitwhiz930475dI guess it's for the same reason nobody supports internet explorer anymore - poor usage.
FuckJava162475d@nitwhiz Well, we do. %18 of Australians still use Internet Explorer. I guess you can't expect more of a nation who picks climate change deniers to its parliament.
That being said, Scroll Lock is not working. Has never worked in Windows. I thought those who designed the Linux Subsystems for Windows were better than this... Apparently not.
You could always lock kernel messages during BSD startup. Or lock scroll when tailing and go back... It's a pain in bash these days
Codex4041811674dScroll lock does work fine for me. I rarely use it but Ive never had issues with it
AlgoRythm4035074dI'm assuming bash uses the terminal control API since it just runs in CMD.
That API doesn't give control over the scrollbar, unfortunately. And bash probably absorbs the scroll lock key press event, so CMD.exe doesn't handle it anymore.
It's a poor Windows API (go fucking figure), not an oversight in design.
Well, at least that's my guess. Not about to trudge through thousands of lines to confirm it.
