My point is that now -- 20 years after this stopped working -- we should
step back a bit and look at whether this functionality (which must at
this remove be seen to be a new feature) makes sense.

And I don't think it does much.  Setting a variable that makes the Emacs
display go inverse?  That's just kinda odd.

I'm asking not to remove it yet.  Maybe one of these days I will find
time to work on this.  It bugs me (pun intended) that this veteran
feature stopped working on TTY frames.

It doesn't follow that we should remove it.
A bug is a bug.  Better to keep this bug open.
Someday, perhaps, Someone(TM) will be motivated
and find a way to fix it.  And if not, so what?

What harm does it do to keep a report open for
a recognized bug?  When it comes to free software
and its volunteers, no one's career is boosted by
just reducing a bug count as an end in itself.
Or am I missing something?

The variable hasn't worked for 20 years (apparently), and this is the
only bug report about it, which is perhaps a hint that we should just
remove it.

I'd argue it's not an important feature.  It seems like it's been
broken for a long time without anyone complaining.  We could remove it
and refer any existing users to "emacs -rv" instead.

Just my two cents, but I don't feel strongly either way.

Best regards,
Stefan Kangas

It's a bug, plain and simple, that setting that variable doesn't
affect the display.

Fixing the bug may not be easy, and isn't high priority, but it
nevertheless is a bug.

FWIW, I see no reason to remove the variable just because we don't
seem to know how to fix this.

OK by me.=20

I was hoping someone might know what this is about,
but I guess it's too late for that.

As I said, I can't discern any visible effects from setting it to t.

By the way, the attached patch removes the variable.  I'm not suggesting
to install it as is, but perhaps it could be useful in figuring out what
the inverse-video variable does and what to do about it.

Best regards,

Why would it be obsolete?  Anyway, it's in the C source code still.

Not sure what it is.  It seems to be orthogonal to "emacs
--reverse-video", and has no effect when I try setting it manually in a
running session, nor when I run "emacs --eval='(setq inverse-video t)'
-Q -nw".

It was removed from the manual here:
b4a1a8b278 2010-03-02 Chong Yidong * frames.texi (Mouse Avoidance): Mention make-pointer-invisible.

So I have the same question as Lars: is this just some old obsolete
variable that should be removed?

Hm.  Is this a deprecated variable or something?  Or is it only used on
startup?  In any case, the doc string should probably mention this,
whatever is going on...

emacs -Q
M-x customize-variable inverse-video
Toggle the value to choose inverse video.  Set for current session.
 
It has no effect, either on existing frames or on new ones.

But doing this has the desired effect:
M-x customize-face default
Turn on attribute `inverse-video'.  Set for current session.

Setting user option `inverse-video' should have the same effect: it
should affect the current session.
