Problems using channel-attached 3270 terminal
I have a couple of 3270-mode terminals locally attached via a 3174-21L
on my z890 running Debian/Squeeze in an LPAR.
According to the 3270 terminal driver documentation, I should be able to
enter ctrl-C, ctrl-D, etc, using ^C or ^D. I can successfully do this
from the SE/HMC console window.
Of course, a locally attached 3270 terminal (I've used a 3279 and 3483
InfoWindow II) doesn't seem to be able to generate a proper character
code for "^", so I have attempted and failed to get the "¬" character
(shift-6 on a 3270 keyboard) recognised as a "^".
I tried modifying the kernel source (defkeymap.map and ctrlchar.c under
drivers/s390/char/), and also using dumpkeys/loadkeys to view and modify
the keymap at runtime.
According to dumpkeys, the only compose sequenses by default are "^" "z"
-> "\000". I used loadkeys to load my modified keymap, which included
the default compose sequences, along with versions modified to use "¬"
instead of "^", but it still didn't seem to make any difference.
Does anyone have any suggestions?
