How often have you accidentally pressed ctrl+s and had your terminal frozen? I don't understand this default mapping at all. It should be gone from Linux installations. If you're a newbie you might have even thought that the terminal has died (I did think so, and I'd restart the terminal when that happened). Apparently you need to press ctrl+q to unfreeze the terminal. These keys could be used for something better than freezing and unfreezing the console.

Get rid of these keys by running these commands:

stty stop undef
stty start undef

Instead remap these combinations to something much more useful, such as saving the file in vim with ctrl+s.

I use very often those freeze and unfreeze, it's great when you need to stop tailing logfile for moment and then continue. Also if you already use some key combinations it's hard to learn something other on those combinations.

Absolutely... if I were to unmap those keys, I'd be losing valuable functionality from the terminal. And there's no point in re-using them for save in vim, because anyone who knows how to use vim isn't going to expect to use Ctrl+S to save...

Really good points!

O jā, šits ir labs ieteikums! Ir gadījies "kaut ko" nospiežot nofrīzot konsoli. Tagad tu palīdzēji saprast, ko tieši nospiežot tas notiek :)

Yes - you could unmap tty stop/start but you should NEVER map Ctrl+s in vim if you ever use vim on another computer than yours.

May 21, 2014, 10:32

I'll never use another computer than mine. :)

Interesting, though I use Linux whenever I can, my main system is OS X (BSD Unix with Bash shell). ctrl-s/-q do not freeze/unfreeze in my OS X bash environment.
