above two are among them. These are exceptional special cases due
to history. My general recommendation is to not use keyboard-translate
but key-translation-map or function-key-map, which work on arbitrary
key sequences rather only on single-char events.
I got these exact keyboard-translate lines from Xah's blog. They don't work reliably on Windows. Sometimes after switching back to Emacs from another program, and my first input to Emacs is C-j, C-j still registers instead of C-x.
How would I use key-translation-map to do the swap?
(define-key key-translation-map [(control x)] [(control j)])
(define-key key-translation-map [(control j)] [(control x)])
C-j seems regixter as C-x. But C-x acting like a prefix key, waiting for the next input.
