[archive] defining non-function key as exception

[Migrated content. Thread originally posted on 04 February 2004]

I would like to have ?-key (question mark key) as a short cut in a screen section character program. I've tried with several like this

set environment "KEYSTROKE" to "Exception=33 ?".

but no one would've work, i.e. it's not been recognized as exception.

Any idea ?

Thanks
Larry

RE: [archive] defining non-function key as exception

See the "KEYBOARD DATA-RANGE" config variable. This will allow you to use ? as a non-data character, which will allow it to take an exception value. (I haven't actually tried this, so am not positive it will work....)
