so i remapped some keys using xmodmap, specifically i remapped one key to the ±-sign. I want to have this key as my escape for GNU screen. I tried adding the following lines in my .screenrc:
escape ± escape ±±
but it doesn't work.
from the GNU Screen manual:
Set the command character to x and the character generating a literal command character (by triggering the "meta" command) to y (similar to the -e option). Each argument is either a single character, a two-character sequence of the form "^x" (meaning "C-x"), a backslash followed by an octal number (specifying the ASCII code of the character), or a backslash followed by a second character, such as "^" or "". The default is "^Aa".
i do not understand how the default mapping is ^a when the line in screenrc is ^Aa.
Can someone explain this please?
