Basically I've set $TERM to pcansi because it's the closest thing to my terminal, however the /etc/termcap entry for pcansi does not have definitions for page-up/down. I searched through /etc/termcap and didn't find an entry that I liked. When running screen it complains if $TERM is not in the /etc/termcap database. So.. I set $TERM to pcansi to get screen from complaining then I add definitions to $TERMCAP for page-up/downs. The thing is that it seems most programs ignore your $TERMCAP if $TERM is a valid entry. Any ideas on how I get screen not to complain about invalid $TERMs and have programs read my $TERMCAP at the same time? This is really bothering me Modifying anything on my computer isn't an option, unfortunately. For example I'm not going to add a screen.TERM entry or modify /etc/termcap.
