Hallo, Keith,

1) I don't know a short cut key to get to the beginning or to
the end of a file I'm editing, what am I missing?

CTRL-Home will move you to the top of the file you are editing.
CTRL-End ditto end of file.

That's what I'm expecting, but the cursor moves only to the
beginning or the end of the line!


       echo $TERM

tells "xterm" (running the machine via "putty").

Maybe that's the reason. When I go to the real keyboard (and not via
"putty") then "echo $TERM" tells "linux", and Ctrl-end works as
described. With old and new versions of mc.

I use konsole terminal emulator part of KDE, under XFCE.


Ctrl keys work OK on konsole.

Under "putty" most (nearly all) ctrl keys work. Only "ctrl end" and
"ctrl home" seem to resist.

I would expect the individual control keys to work.  However, control
as a modifier to function keys appears to have no effect with putty.
