Fun with *zwei-comtab*

    Date: Mon, 25 Jun 90 08:23 EDT

    I'm using a Sun with the UX board and like it a great deal.  There is
    one nagging problem, however.  In zmacs, the line feed key acts as the
    line key.  This key is to small- so I normally end up hitting return and
    then tab.  In my attempts to reduce keystrokes, I've tried the

    Set package zwei ;; Note I'll use a $ instead of a sharp sign- mulitcs
    doesn't like sharps (set-comtab *zmacs-comtab* '($\line com-insert-crs))
    (set-comtab *zmacs-comtab* '($\return com-indent-new-line)) ;; This
    basically should switch the two keys- or am I doing something silly?  ;;
    When I move to zmacs and hit $\return- I end up in the debugger with ;;
    an error I can't remember at the moment.  ;; If I hit $\line, no
    problem.  It works like it should, i.e.  $\return.

    Any ideas?  And no- I don't want to buy a symbolics keyboard for the

		       Many thanks, Bill

I would LOVE to buy a symbolics keyboard for the suns (ux400's) we have here,
but not only are they not available, we havn't been able to bootleg a hardware
interface for them yet! Anybody out there already do it?
