When you unintentionally display contents of a binary file (e.g. cat /bin/mount |
more), it may happens that the terminal displays characters which are not printable, causing the display of totally unreadable special characters.
In such cases, if a CTRL-L
is not enough simply type:
echo [CTRL]+v [Esc] c [Enter]
