  • C-a C-v


  • digraph [preset]


This command prompts the user for a digraph sequence. The next two characters typed are looked up in a builtin table and the resulting character is inserted in the input stream. For example, if the user enters a", an a-umlaut will be inserted. If the first character entered is a 0 (zero), screen will treat the following characters (up to three) as an octal number instead. If the first two characters entered are “U+”, the next four characters are read as a hexadecimal number.

The optional argument preset is treated as user input, thus one can create an “umlaut” key. For example the command “bindkey ^K digraph '”' “ enables the user to generate an a-umlaut by typing C-k a.
