Using gnome-terminal under linux, to a FreeBSD 6.2 system.  Mouse works.

I fire up screen (with screen 4.00.02 (FAU) 5-Dec-03 built from ports) and it doesn't in either Alpine or Nano, both of which otherwise support it.

Unlike printing, I don't know what terminal codes to look for to know if the mouse is supported.

      Hey all,

      I need two features added to screen, but I'm not a coder.  I can (and 
have) discussed on this list, as well as having seen these features justified
      and explained on mailing lists before, but I don't believe they work at 
this time.

      1) Make printing work.  And by that I mean make it work JUST as it would work 
without screen, i.e. not "buffer" and send a bunch of printer
      stop/start sequences every 30 characters -- many SSH applications 
interpret that stop sequence as a page feed.

      2) Make mouse work.  I haven't seen much with this.

      I'm willing to toss something monetary at a developer or developers who 
can look at this and make it happen.

      Any takers?
