The prefix method is the Quail-method available in the Emacs mode. You prefix the key sequence with a "normal" character (the period in the default emacs mode) instead of using Alt or something like that. So for example:

  .T → ⍨
  .l → ⎕
  .& → ⊖
  .. → .

The fact that Alt can be used by other applications (or even the operating environment itself) suggests that it would be useful to have another mechanism.

Perhaps, but what David did works real well without the crazy machinations I had to go through with xkbcomp.  xkbcomp, IMO, is not suitable for human consumption.


I still want to promote my prefix-based method. :-)

Not entirely sure what you mean here, but again, David's routine works real well without any messing.

And... of course... integrating this into gnu apl proper.

I strongly agree with that!

Dear David,

Cool tool.  I like it.  Thanks!

1.  It compiled on my LinuxMint x64 box without incident, and it does work.

2.  I had to disable the activation of terminal menu features with the Alt key.  No biggie, but you must be sure to do it for things like Alt-H (∇) to work.

3.  For some reason, when I type )off, I must hit an extra CR in order to exit.  Perhaps the pipe is requiring this.

4.  The following keys are mis-mapped:
    ⍀ (Alt-period)
    ⍙ (the one on top of the ⍀)
    ⌸ (Alt-Shift-K)

The last one was taken from http://dfns.dyalog.com/n_keyboards.htm

Juergen, I think ⌸ should be added to ]keyb at Alt-Shift-K.  That is where Dialog has it, and I thought you had it there before too.

Thanks for a great tool, David!
