Jump to: navigation, search

A line starve describes the feeding of paper in a line printer back one line or moving the cursor on a character terminal up one line. It is the opposite of a line feed. This term is also used to describe the control character or escape sequence which causes this action. This is not a standard ASCII character, but it is defined as the ISO and Unicode "Reverse Line Feed" character (U+008D).
