9.8 How do I produce C-XXX with my keyboard?

On terminals (but not under X), some common “aliases” are:

C-2 or C-<SPC>
C-@
C-6
C-^
C-7 or C-S--
C-_
C-4
C-\
C-5
C-]
C-/
C-?

Often other aliases exist; use the C-h c command and try <CTRL> with all of the digits on your keyboard to see what gets generated. You can also try the C-h w command if you know the name of the command.
