NAME
       setmetamode - define the keyboard meta key handling

SYNOPSIS
       setmetamode [ {meta|bit|metabit | esc|prefix|escprefix} ]

DESCRIPTION
       Without  argument,  setmetamode  prints the current Meta key mode.  With argument, it sets
       the Meta key mode as indicated.  The setting before and after the change are reported.

       The Meta key mode is specific for each VT (and the VT corresponding  to  stdin  is  used).
       One  might  use  setmetamode  in /etc/rc to define the initial state of the Meta key mode,
       e.g. by
            INITTY=/dev/tty[1-8]
            for tty in $INITTY; do
                 setmetamode escprefix < $tty
            done

OPTIONS
       esc prefix escprefix
              The Meta key sends an Escape prefix.

       meta bit metabit
              The Meta key sets the high order bit of the character.
