setmetamode - define the keyboard meta key handling


   setmetamode [ {meta|bit|metabit | esc|prefix|escprefix} ]


   Without  argument,  setmetamode prints the current Meta key mode.  With
   argument, it sets the Meta key mode as indicated.  The  setting  before
   and after the change are reported.

   The  Meta key mode is specific for each VT (and the VT corresponding to
   stdin is used).  One might use setmetamode in  /etc/rc  to  define  the
   initial state of the Meta key mode, e.g. by
        for tty in $INITTY; do
             setmetamode escprefix < $tty


   esc prefix escprefix
          The Meta key sends an Escape prefix.

   meta bit metabit
          The Meta key sets the high order bit of the character.
