Appendix B: UNIX Key Usage Chart

Because UNIX terminals vary widely, the keys documented in this manual might not be available on your keyboard. This appendix lists the actual keystrokes required to obtain the documented functions.

It also tells you how to select soft or hard operation for the Alt and Ctrl keys. With soft operation, the Alt or Ctrl key is automatically turned off after the next keystroke. This means that whenever you want a function from the Alt menu you must hold down Alt again to get the Alt menu displayed; and similarly with Ctrl.

With hard operation, the Alt and Ctrl keys work in a similar way to the Caps Lock key, in that having been pressed, they remain in effect until pressed again.

B.1 Default Key Usage

The following table lists the available functions, the key documented as resulting in that function, the keystrokes required to obtain the documented functions, and whether the keystroke can be configured.
