| Now, my current problem is: how do I do the same thing when I access the
| Unix machine using X-windows? I've had to resort to ESC-X instead of M-X.
| :( I'm sure it's in the X docs somewhere, but I haven't taken the time to
| drag myself through them yet.
| If Emacs is running in its own X window, it should recognize the Meta key
| directly. I've never had any problem with this, going as far back as X10
| and the MIT Lispm X server.
| If you're running the Emacs inside an xterm window, I don't know offhand
| how to make the Meta key go through. But why are you running Emacs this
Good qeustion. Anyway, you may convince xterm (your shell within xterm)
to handle 8 bit input by doing either (or both):
$ stty -istrip
$ stty cs8
