> Another that leaps to mind is the Canon Cat with its "Use Front" key.
I wish that on the Cat, the "Use Front" could be switched to enter
control characters, while in the Forth mode. When writing my HP printer
driver, putting control characters into print strings was a pain. The
key board had no ESC key and most printer strings started with
that control character.
One could modify it but then one would lose the original functions.
I use the "Use Front" key for help and normal functions such as saving
I guess one could add a special key sequence to enter control characters.
I know it sees things like "Use Front" "Shift" "Space" as something special
when in the editor.
