Subject: [gentoo-user] Interpret characters in /etc/inputrc
Date: Sun, 29 Jan 2006 13:24:18
1 The help documentation for /etc/inputrc is found in`man 3 readline'
2 under section INITIALIZATION FILE and is quite extensive. However I
3 don't see any info regarding how to interpret the characters used in
4 /etc/inputrc.
6 Things like:
7 # for linux console and RH/Debian xterm
8 "\e[1~": beginning-of-line
9 "\e[4~": end-of-line
10 #"\e[5~": beginning-of-history
11 #"\e[6~": end-of-history
12 "\e[5~": history-search-backward
13 "\e[6~": history-search-forward
14 "\e[3~": delete-char
15 "\e[2~": quoted-insert
17 I happen to know what some of those are from use but how can I tell
18 what characters are being referred to, that is, what does:
19 "\e[2~" mean in plain english?
21 I've seen a table somewhere that tells how to read that notation but
22 can't remember where.
