    Shift-arrows are not part of the Screen virtual terminal. Those keys
are not translated between the real terminal and applications. And are
not declared in TERM=screen terminfos.

    However Screen doesn't block those keys, they are passed unmodified
to applications. So you could build a custom terminfo entry, beginning
with a basic screen one, and adding any keys you want. As starting

| screen.xterm|GNU Screen inside Xterm,
|       kRIT=\E[1;2C,
|       use=screen,

     Tic -x this and you'll get a specialized entry better exploiting
Xterm features. It's less portable though: Don't use that if you happen
to detach and reattach to another terminal.

Bye!    Alain.
