I am trying to set console emacs to use 8-bit meta rather than interpreting it as a character. The reason for this is so I can use meta as a modifier in Vim for my own keybindings. So setting xterm to "Meta Sends Escape" is not an option.
I would think that setting meta-flag would do what I want as described below, but meta-flag no longer appears to be a variable in this version of emacs (23.1.1)
Also the set-input-mode seems to do what I want but it also isn't in my version of emacs.
google: set-input-mode interrupt flow meta quit-char
(Sorry, I can only use 1 link)
Any ideas or alternatives?
