Re: Why does one have to "Press any key to continue" after running a command?

OK, I will try that. Right now it is something like "Only on dumb terminals" or similar wording. But the explanation in the man page for this option was not exactly clear.

      For example:

      Running Midnight Commander, with the panels turned on, I do a
      command such as

      latex Cntl-Enter

      (using the Cntl-Enter seqiemce tp bring a filename down to the
      command line, so that it says

      latex file.tex

      Then after the latex command has done its thing one does not get
      the panel back. Instead, one sees "Press any key to continue"

      Perhaps there is a good reason for doing things this way, but I
      cannot figure out what it might be.

      Also I can not find any option in "man mc" which would look as
      though it ought to be what one should do to turn this off.
