    Question emacs and key mapping help

    Hi, does anyone have a "standard" .emacsrc file I can look at? The .emacsrc I have was customized by another user and has a bunch of special key mappings set up that I don't like, but I don't know enough about shell scripting to fix it myself. Even just a list of symbols used for special keys would be helpful -- for example, I know ^C is Control+C and M=Meta=Esc, but what is A-1, FN6, ^[[17~~, FN^2, etc. in lines like this?

    bind-to-key search-reverse  M-FN^2
    set $palette "KEYMAP A-1 ^[Oq"
    set $palette "KEYMAP FN6 ^[[17~~"
    I am using ksh on AIX if that makes a difference. Thanks!
    My programs don't have bugs, they just develop random features.

    Maybe in the emacs installation directory.

    Or perhaps ask your sysadmin.
    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.
