console gibberish

Postby utrrrongeeb » 2006-05-17 09:49

Hi,
When I try to cat a binary file, such as /etc/kcore, the console and any text I type or programs' output is scrambled. I don't cat binary files on purpose much, but is there any way to correct this short of a reboot?

Thanks! :D
I haven't yet tried that, but I will the next time I'm in Debian. It's one of those things that seems too obvious to exist.
