 Mapping keys other than the function keys
The main reason I have Linux installed at home, is to give me the capability
to take my work (UNIX application development) home.

At work, I have access to several types of UNIX platforms, and exclusivly use
vi. Under these enviroments, I map vi to use the keypad for special functions:
   - Save, Quit, Next File.
   - Cut and paste to named buffers.
   - Read in module, function templates

I would like to have the same functionality at home. The keyboard map under
Linux only provides the ability to program the function keys.

Does anyone know how I can simulate a DEC style keyboard or program keys
other that the function key?
This would also be handy when I get a modem, and use the machines at
work via telnet.

Will I have to resort to altering the source code?

Thank you

Who says that? That may have been the case years ago,
and the present syntax may remind of that old situation,
but these days all keys are equivalent, and you can
program your "A" or CapsLock key to produce any string you want.
Use loadkeys.
