Keyboard support on Linux terminals seems most difficult.
Some shortcuts are being processed by terminal app.
here programmer has no options.
Some ctrl-combinations are causing signals.
switch tty to raw mode, and there will be no signals. see my
iv.rawtty2, for example.
E.g. I cannot get working text selection moving by
this is hightly dependent of the actual terminal emulator. in
real world, it is enough to support xterm mappings, rxvt
mappings and "Linux" (this is "real" console) mappings. xterm
and rxvt mappings aren't really conflicting (much). again, the
messy iv.rawtty2.ttyReadKey may give some clues.
of course, "best practice" is to use termcap/terminfo, but this
is even bigger mess! ;-)
I'll look at it.
