In ZWEI in System 210.80, ZMail 45.2, Remote-File 103.0,
Experimental Macsyma 36.0, DAEDALUS 45.2, microcode 895,
site configuration 8, 210.80 MacDaed, on Marvin:
^Q ^F, for example, just gets treated as an F.
The character C-F takes more than 8 bits. It therefore cannot be in a buffer
to search for. The "ascii control" character can be searched for without
any special quoting.
is there a way to make case be a factor? (ie, F <> f)
Do M-X Set Variable
Alphabetic Case Affects Search
There is an inconsistency here. Typing C-Q C-F at a buffer or
minibuffer gets you an (epsilon). Typing C-Q C-F at an I-search gets
you an F (capital F). I think what he found really IS a bug in
