To be really compatible, you need to look at the termcap entries, because the key values vary between different terminals. Or just use Curses?

    I am pretty sure this will work for 99%+ of users.

    The script might provide a starting point if you really need to test some unusual keyboard. Beyond the obvious limits stated in the chart, the A-D in the "until" statement is a cheat to account for the arrow keys, which are : "\e[A" "\e[B" "\e[C" "\e[D" in the standard. A regular deal: I presume you are going to get the same answers i did, but i don't completely provide them.

    I have seen termcap entries and no way I will look at them again.
