       byobu-ctrl-a - Configure Byobu's ctrl-a behavior


       byobu-ctrl-a is an interactive program that allows a user to configure the behavior of the
       'ctrl-a' key sequence.

       Traditional GNU screen(1) uses ctrl-a as its escape character,  while  GNU  emacs(1)  uses
       ctrl-a to move the cursor to the beginning of the line.  This conflict has caused unending
       amounts of grief among Screen, Byobu, and Emacs-mode users.

       Thus, this program exists to allow each user to choose the behavior  of  ctrl-a  in  their
       local environment.
