From: Tim Visher
Subject: bug#9897: 24.0.90; w32 control character configuration is severely lacking compared to ns-win.el
Date: Fri, 28 Oct 2011 11:14:06 -0400

This bug report will be sent to the Bug-GNU-Emacs mailing list
and the GNU bug tracker at debbugs.gnu.org.  Please check that
the From: line contains a valid email address.  After a delay of up
to one day, you should receive an acknowledgement at that address.

Please write in English if possible, as the Emacs maintainers
usually do not have translators for other languages.

Please describe exactly what actions triggered the bug, and
the precise symptoms of the bug.  If you can, give a recipe
starting from `emacs -Q':

I'm trying to configure what pressing Alt, Windows, Apps, and Control on
a windows keyboard translates to in emacs. I use emacs on both Macs and
Windows boxen and I'm used to configuring the keys on macs using
ns-win.el bindings like:

    (if (boundp 'mac-command-modifier) (setq mac-command-modifier 'control))
    (if (boundp 'mac-option-modifier) (setq mac-option-modifier 'meta))
    (if (boundp 'mac-control-modifier) (setq mac-control-modifier 'super))

Compared to that library, the ability to configure what the meta keys
map to on windows is severely lacking, not allowing configuration at all
of what the control-modifier is mapped to, and providing only toggles
for the windows keys and apps keys.

I'm mainly just reporting this glaring inequality.

If Emacs crashed, and you have the Emacs process in the gdb debugger,
please include the output from the following gdb commands:
    `bt full' and `xbacktrace'.
