Screen command character weirdness
I have been using the GNU screen with some headless Linux servers at work for ages. I've always logged in using Putty in Windows and things work like a charm.
Now, I have redefined the command character (for obvious reasons) in .screenrc like this:
This has always worked perfectly well (ie. pressing "control" and "<" keys simultaneusly) in Putty, but it doesn't work anywhere else (e.g. ssh from xterm running on Linux).
OK, I understand now that there is no such control character as ^< in ASCII, but why this particular configuration works with Putty?
And is there a way to make it work everywhere?
