VT keyboard key codes

The VT keyboard sends a predefined escape sequence for each of its special keys. For example, function keys, editing keys, and numeric keys. Most applications written for VT terminals expect to see these escape sequences. If your application is looking for a different escape sequence, you can program this sequence to a keyboard string and map that keyboard string to a key sequence on your PC.

The tables in this section list the codes sent for each of the defined keyboard keys.
