* bug#46332: Eshell color control characters not displayed correctly

Hello Emacs maintainers!


So I have my pager set to cat and in eshell I type `git log` and after a
while (1000 - 2000 lines) it starts to show the control characters
verbatim instead of coloring the characters. So it works initially but
then breaks down after a bit. This applies to all commands but git log
is a good one to use for testing.

I did a quick git bisect to figure out when the problem occurred and it
seems commit 2e2a8e5491bc6259a9ebe8c703c1c501307953e2 is the
offender.

I can confirm the bug still exists as of commit
0484879d3b0f81222bacbc3c9655d1cfcdb5d321.


Thanks,

Morgan

Thanks for bisecting this -- we've had similar reports about ANSI
colouring randomly not working, but I've been unable to reproduce the
problem here.

And I'm still not able to, and it would be nice to be able to reproduce
it before starting to poke at it.

Do you have a recipe, starting from "emacs -Q", for how to reproduce
this bug?

Hi Lars,

Thanks for all the hard work you do! I read your blog :)


I can't seem to be able to not reproduce this. Meaning no matter what I
do the bug shows up. Maybe it's a compile flag issue? I'm using guix to
build emacs so I'm wondering if you're willing to install guix (just the
package manager, not the operating system) to check if that's the issue.

Using this command I'm able to recreate the bug. This command boots up a
container, creates a user for the container, and exposes pretty much
nothing except the current working directory (so do this in a git
repository to check). I expose /tmp too because X11 seems to want it but
you might not have to.

guix environment --preserve='^DISPLAY$' --expose=/tmp
--with-commit=emacs-next=817a49748f0cd7f746ce1895d7c31c086289a91e
--with-git-url=emacs-next=/home/USERNAME/src/emacs --user=testyboi -C
--ad-hoc emacs-next git -- emacs -Q

Then M-x eshell
Then type: git log --color

Around 300 lines later, the control characters start being printed
verbatim. The amount of time until it happens seems to vary sometimes,
but it always seems to happen eventually.


If you don't want to install guix, I'll include the bug report stuff here:

Ah, thanks -- that was the missing clue -- with that, I'm able to
reproduce the bug here, too.  Or to be precise, if somebody else wants
to poke at this before I get a chance:

emacs -Q
M-x eshell
export PAGER=cat
git log --color

This now works for me in Emacs 28 -- it was saving the wrong end
position.  Would it be possible for you to check whether this works for
you too now?

I had a little trouble testing this as there is currently a bug in
master preventing me from compiling. The bug was introduced in commit
8d5dfafab7dc40d4b74dc0b56d1b314fd8cac390 and you can see the compile log
here: https://emba.gnu.org/emacs/emacs/-/jobs/13484

Thankfully, that commit is after your fix so I was eventually able to
test it. And it works!! Thank you so much!! I've just been dealing with
this for months now and it has not been ideal.

Feel free to close the bug. You have made me a very happy man!

Thanks for checking and confirming that the fix works.
