[Nano-devel] [PATCH] bindings: at a Yes-No prompt, accept also ^N and ^Q

From: Benno Schulenberg
Subject: [Nano-devel] [PATCH] bindings: at a Yes-No prompt, accept also ^N and ^Q for "No"
Date: Mon, 13 May 2019 19:48:36 +0200

When wanting to exit after having modified a buffer by mistake, I don't
want to politely answer a question by typing precisely an unmodified N,
I want to give a command: ^N, meaning *No!*.  Or seen another way: I
don't want to be obliged to let go of the Ctrl key before typing N.

When at startup --tempfile was used, the user can discard a modified
buffer with ^O ^Q.  It would be nice when (without --tempfile) ^X ^Q
would work too.
