Maybe a silly question...
It seems as PF6 and PF10 are linked to Ctrl/C and Ctrl/Z.
At least as it says in the OpenVMS User Manual:
Ctrl/Z and F10 Signals the end of the file for data entered from the terminal.
Ctrl/Y, Ctrl/C and F6 Interrupts command processing. You can disable
Ctrl/Y with the command SET NOCONTROL=Y.
I have found different ways to disable Ctrl/Y and Ctrl/T, but
what about Ctrl/C? We are looking at replacing our old screen
mgr tool (that doesn't support the 132 mode that we need) with
the built-in SCREEN and DISPLAY exensions in Cobol.
But currently, pressing PF6 just prints the usual "Interrupt"
and exists the application. How to prevent that and let the
PF6 codes through to the application?
Doing SET NOCONT=Y still displays "Interrupt", but it doesn't exit
the app. Setting the account to /flags=restricted does the same.
I want to have PF6 available as a function key in the application...
And also, I do not seem to get the ESC codes 11~ to 14~ through.
They comes from the F1-F4 och the PC keyboard...
