4.2.1 Writing key sequences

GNUIT contains three interactive programs. Their names are: gitfm (this is the file system browser), gitps (this is the process viewer/killer and gitview (this is the ASCII/HEX file viewer). Each one of these programs has its own set of key bindings.

The convention used in describing key bindings are very simple. Here there are some examples that will help you to understand them. The corresponding Emacs conventions will help you even more.

^A means keeping the Ctrl key down and pressing the a key (C-a).

The ESC character is represented as ^[ so that you can use the meta character (M- ) where available (or the ESC key):

^[a corresponds to M-a (pressing the ESC key and then a).

The ^ character is represented as ^^.

The backspace character is represented as ^_.

The Ctrl-SPACE character (C-SPC) is represented as ^$.

The space (SPC) character is represented as ^@.

Note that the key bindings notation described here is only used in the configuration files. For the sake of readability this manual uses ESC for the ESC key, SPC for the SPACE key and RET for the RETURN (ENTER) key.
