NAME

linkskeys - links WWW browser key bindings

 

SYNOPSIS

~/.links/user.cfg

 

DESCRIPTION

Key bindings for links should be placed in a file called ~/.links/user.cfg. This file will be read from but not written to, so you may put comments in there.

Key binding statements are of the form:

bind keymap keystroke action where:

keymap
is main, edit, or menu.

keystroke
is a case sensitive key, which you can prefix with Ctrl- or Alt-. Ctrl- must be followed by an uppercase key. See below for a list of valid keys.

action
is what the key should do. The actions available are dependent on the keymap, and are listed separately below.

All words/strings may all be quoted "like so". Backslashes are escape characters, even if not between quotes. Lines beginning with a hash character (#) are comments.

Key can be unbound using the unbind statement.

unbind keymap keystroke It may be of use if you accidentally type a key often.

 

KEYS

Valid keys are: alphanumeric characters, punctuation, Enter, Backspace, Tab, Escape, Left, Right, Up, Down, Insert, Delete, Home, End, PageUp, PageDown, F1 to F12.

Some keys will need to be quoted or escaped. For example, space can be written as " " (quote space quote), and the quote itself as \" (backslash quote). Backslash can be written as \\ (double backslash).
