Since some of the Lisp Machines still have old-style keyboards, here is
an explanation of how to type some of the new keys on the old keyboards.
To get: Type: What it is:
ABORT TOP/CALL Asynchronously THROWs out of all functions
running in the current process, and restarts
the process from its initial function.
CLEAR-INPUT CLEAR Flush unread characters (in the rubout-handler
CLEAR-SCREEN FORM Erase or refresh the selected window.
END TOP/RETURN Marks the end of input to some programs.
HELP TOP/H Gets help, sometimes...
MACRO BACKNEXT Invokes keyboard macros in the Editor
NETWORK TOP/BREAK SUPDUP and TELNET escape.
OVER-STRIKE BS Overstrike characters.
SYSTEM TOP/ESC Select a window of a specified type.
Type SYSTEM HELP for help.
TERMINAL ESC Various terminal functions.
Type TERMINAL HELP for help.
HOLD-OUTPUT (used with TERMINAL) and QUOTE (used by the Inspector)
are not availible on the old keyboards.
More details can be found in the window system documentation written
by Allan Wechsler; this is not published yet but bootleg copies
are floating around.
