According to this question tty only recognize character input and the rest of function keys F[1-12] as a char sequence.
I have a CUI application runs over wineconsole and expects a F12 key press, all is executed on tty session (ctrl+alt+f[1-6]). Now I can send the expected char sequence for the F12 using ctrl+[ [24~ or esc [24~ but that would be counter-intuitive and less memorable to send a function key using their char sequence.
So my question: is there any way that I can bind or config the tty terminal to recognize an F12 keypress (and the rest of the function keys) as ... well as an F12.
here is the output of my F12 keypress using showkey command in tty terminal
kb mode was UNICODE [ if you are trying this under X, it might not work since the X server is also reading /dev/console ] press any key (program terminates 10s after last keypress)... keycode 28 release keycode 88 press keycode 88 release
and here is the output of the tput
F1 ^[[[A F2 ^[[[B F3 ^[[[C F4 ^[[[D F5 ^[[[E F6 ^[[17~ F7 ^[[18~ F8 ^[[19~ F9 ^[[20~ F10 ^[[21~ F11 ^[[23~ F12 ^[[24~
Thanks in advance
