Hi Jay

I'm assuming you mean Scott's improved patch (which I think he said in 
now in cvs), rather than my first excursion into C programming[1] ;-)

One thing you *could* [:)] look at though is the Help key binding. This 
is listed as ^H in the man page, but has disappeared from tn5250 at some 
point. We've a number of screens that don't use F1 as Alt-Help, so I 
can't get to application help or message subfiles[2] on them at present.

Oh, kudos to whoever added Esc as Attn in /usr/local/tn5250/XTerm - I 
don't know how long it's been there, as I got so used to ^A instead[3]. 
At least it'll make the occasional use of CA less confusing. I only 
noticed when I dozily tried to exit SEU with Esc:wq ;-) Maybe I should 
just dump SEU and use Vim permanently...  

Regards, Martin

[1] Can anyone recommend a good book explaining C to a novice? I don't 
think I'm likely to learn it anytime soon (starting off with Python), but 
I would like to understand it enough to follow what most of the code is 
doing.
[2] That's not strictly true - I can get to message subfile entries by a 
SysRq3 and option 10 for the job log, but it's more long-winded.
[3] Our menu system is group job based, so I use Attn a lot.
