SCREEN command and MCEdit under SLES9


  I used MCEdit as my text editor on Linux mainframe. I learned of the SCREEN command and have been playing around with but noticed that when I invoke SCREEN and then go into MCEdit, the PK keys that function normally in MCEdit outside of SCREEN no longer work. Keys such as PF2 (Save), PF5 (Copy) and PF6 (Move) will not work when MCEdit is running under SCREEN. Only PF10 (Quit) functions properly. When I press PF2 in MCEdit under SCREEN, what appears is 12~ and if I press PF5 or PF6, nothing at all happens.


  Is anyone familiar with this problem and if so, what needs to be done to allow MCEdit PF keys to function normally when running under SCREEN? Might it be a TERCAP setting? Any assistance would be appreciated. Thanks.
