 Interpreting key bindings of tcsh - Help
     From my tcsh 'bindkey' command ( in vi mode ) , I see the
following bindings , but unable to figure out what the "^[[A" &
similar stuff means ? Can someone help ? Is there a doc or unix
command that can help me figure ?

Multi-character bindings
"^[[A"         -> up-history
"^[[B"         -> down-history
"^[[C"         -> forward-char

these mean respectively up-arrow, down-arrow et right-arrow. They're
bound to previous and next line in sh'history, and next char on
command-line. But i can't tell you more about the encoding, sorry.
I'd be also /really/ interested in a thorough explanation of these
encodings and all the mecanics relating to console i/o, etc.

Have a nice day,

^something means ctol somthing, in this cae ^[ is control [, which is
The othe characters are literal.
A vt100 and derived keyboards sends the 3 characters
        escape [ A
when you press the up-arrow.

A quick way to see what is sent is to run
        od -xc
and press the key you are interested in, followed by newline and control D.
