14.6 Bindkey Examples

Here are some examples of keyboard bindings:

 
bindkey -d

Show all of the default key bindings. The application mode entries are marked with [A].

 
bindkey -k k1 select 1

Make the "F1" key switch to window one.

 
bindkey -t foo stuff barfoo

Make `foo' an abbreviation of the word `barfoo'. Timeout is disabled so that users can type slowly.

 
bindkey "\024" mapdefault

This key-binding makes `C-t' an escape character for key-bindings. If you did the above `stuff barfoo' binding, you can enter the word `foo' by typing `C-t foo'. If you want to insert a `C-t' you have to press the key twice (i.e. escape the escape binding).

 
bindkey -k F1 command

Make the F11 (not F1!) key an alternative screen escape (besides `C-a').
