I've put together a tarball that allows me to enter the cent character. 
I've made Ctrl-c be the cent key ('c' for 'cent').  This may not be the 
permanent way to do it, but it works.  Since you know how to modify the 
code to map things the way you like I'm sure you can change this to match 
your preferences.  Hopefully soon the key mapping won't require code 
changes.  Grab the tarball from:


If this works for you I'll add this feature to the regular release.


Does this work with the x keyboard input for the cent character?

I am able to input a cent by using the compose key, |, c.  If you don't have a 
compose key, you can set other keys to be a compose by the command:

setxkbmap -option compose:ralt (right alt is compose)
-option compose:menu (windows "menu" key is compose)
-option compose:caps (caps lock is compose)
-option compose:rwin (right windows key is compose)

x5250 should probably accept this input.  In fact, shouldn't the cent character 
really be handled at this level, rather than directly within x5250?
