Shiju ,

In your 2nd posting I could found about pound but there was no cent.

SK,

Do you know what should be the terminal emulation during pressing Alt-K?

Hi Sandip,

On the second document, this was the solution for displaying "cent":

keycode 75 = k K cent cent

The columns are normal keypress, Shift-keypress, Alt-keypress, Alt-Shift-keypress

Sandip,

May be you already figured this out. The octal value for cent is "0242"

so print it on stdout, do:

hostA>echo "\0242"
??
hostA>
