NAME

       keyboard - how to type characters

DESCRIPTION

       Keyboards are idiosyncratic.  It should be obvious how to type ordinary
       ASCII characters, backspace, tab, escape, and newline.  In general, the
       key  labeled  Return or Enter generates a newline (0x0A); if there is a
       key labeled Line Feed, it generates a carriage return (0x0D); CRLFs are
       not  used.   All  control  characters  are  typed  in the usual way; in
       particular, control-J is a line feed and control-M a carriage return.

       The delete character (0x7F) is usually generated by a key labeled  Del,
       Delete, or Int.

       The  view  character  (0x80),  sam(1),  and 9term(1), causes windows to
       scroll forward; the  back-view  character  (0x81),  causes  windows  to
       scroll  backward.  The view character is generated by the ← and ↓ keys;
       the back-view character is generated by the → and ⇑ keys.

       Internally, characters are represented as  runes  (see  utf(5g)).   Any
       16-bit  rune  can  be typed as a multi-character sequence.  The compose
       key must be pressed while the first character of the sequence is typed;
       on  most terminals, the compose key is labeled Alt.  While pressing the
       compose key, type a capital and  exactly  four  hexadecimal  characters
       (digits  and  to  to  enter  the rune with the value represented by the
       typed number.  There are two-character shorthands for some  characters.
       The compose key must be pressed while typing the first character of the
       pair.  The following sequences generate the desired rune:
