Thanks. These work but I have found a problem with some applications where it seems an application's keybinds override those of screen - mutt and vim in insert mode don't allow these binds to work. Is there some way of forcing screen binds to work no matter which application is running?

I tried unbinding left and right in mutt but it didn't work.

try the same lines but add -a, maybe that helps...

Your codes don't seem to be working. How did you find the codes? Is there a lookup table somewhere on the www? I think control codes depend on the terminal in use.

i used cat, just started it, and pressed the key i wanted the code for, like this (after pressing C-left and C-right):


^[ is of cource \033.

When I do that it shows ^[[D and makes no difference if I am pressing
control or not. This probably explains why it doesn't work for me. But, it
must be reading control somewhere or C-a wouldn't work...
