      In the table below:
       F	is a Final character in
      	    an Escape sequence (F from 48 to 126 in the	ASCII table)
      	    a control sequence (F from 64 to 126).
       Fe	is a Final character in	ASCII range 64 to 95.
       Gs	is a graphic character appearing in strings (Gs	ranges from
      	32 to 126) in the ASCII	table.
       C0	is the set of 7-bit ASCII control characters from 0 to 31.
       C1	the set	of control characters available	only in	8-bit systems.
       Ce	is a control represented as a single bit combination in	the C1 set
      	of controls in an 8-bit	character set.
       I	is an Intermediate character from 32 to	47 (inclusive) in the
      	ASCII table.
       P	is a parameter character from 48 to 63 (inclusive) in the ASCII
       Pn	is a numeric parameter in a control sequence, a	string of zero or
      	more characters	ranging	from 48	to 57 in the ASCII table.
      	Numeric	parameters must	be in decimal radix.
       Ps	is a variable number of	selective parameters in	a control sequence
      	with each selective parameter separated	from the other by the code
      	59 (which usually represents a semicolon); Ps ranges from
      	48 to 57 and 59.

      IBM PC Keyboard	Reassignment:
      Keyboard reassignment uses an undefined	ANSI X3.64-1979	code sequence
      to define a character or set of	characters send	by the console whenever
      a given	key is pressed on an IBM PC compatible.	 The control sequence
      ESC [ Pn ; Pn ;	... Pn p
      ESC [ "string" ; p
      The first ASCII	code in	the sequence defines which code	is being mapped.
      If the first code is 0 (nul), then the second code is the extended
      IBM keycode.  The remaining numbers define the sequence	of ASCII codes
      generated when this key	is intercepted,	or the string (enclosed	in
      quotes)	to be generated.  For example:
      	ESC [65;81p		A becomes Q
      	ESC [0;68;"dir";13p	F10 generates  dir  followed by	a CR.
