I am preparing the Telnet presentation, I found there are two line modes in Telnet which are kludge line mode (line-at-a-time) and linemode (real line mode). Could you please tell me what's the difference between these two line modes. Any information would be highly appreciated. In "kludge line mode", all you have is "line mode" or "no line mode", and it is left for the telnet client to determin what consitutes line terminators, editing characters, and so on. This is somewhat useful on hosts that have a genuine "line mode" orientation. In "real line mode", there is sufficient negotiation of those parameters that line mode becomes useful on "sort-of" line mode systems like unix, which are frequently interpretting commands line-at-a-time, but have so many user-settable options within a line that the kludge line mode is unacceptable.
