Can't bind several bindings in finch and man page doesn't help

Reported by: doronbehar Owned by: sadrul
Milestone: Component: finch (gnt/ncurses)
Version: 2.12.0 Keywords: bind terminal


Hello everyone,

I'm trying to change the default key bindings of finch.

I've read the man page of finch(1) throughly and I'm experiencing a problem binding the following keys to commands:




I understand why c-m may be problematic, I've heard on other programs' manuals (Vim for example) that the terminals can't really differentiate between c-m and the Enter Key.

As for c-[ and c-], binding some functions to these could really help me.. It just doesn't work, I also want to bind two other functions to c-{ and c-} and it doesn't work as well. I tried c-shift-[ and c-shift-] as well and it doesn't work as well.

I really need to bind these keys because most of the default bindings of finch have alt as a modifier just like most of my tmux bindings so I really need to solve the collisions.

I would really appreciate some help if anyone had experience with it..
