how about if Ctrl combinations with backtick (ASCII 0x60), opening and
closing brace (0x7B and 0x7D), pipe (0x7C), and tilde (0x7E) were
mapped to C1 control characters (in the U+0080 to U+009E range).
I don't think it's useful to support C1 control characters because virtually
nobody will ever want to input them via keyboard;
I don't know of applications that need those by default either; the
point is to make such key combinations available for custom mappings
in places such as ~/.inputrc and ~/.vimrc.
Ah, again. However, a custom mapping as mentioned might want to
distinguish all keys,
even more if only a random subset of C1 can be supported this is only
The entire set is supported already. See
so still I wouldn't map Control-~ and -` to already mapped ones.
Maybe extend the "Number and symbol keys" scheme, or use the
modifyOtherKeys sequences here by default?
