A number of people have requested my MS-kermit script for Emacs users.
This script allows the "ALT" key to function as the emacs Meta-key. It
should work on any PC compatible keyboard. It also assigns reasonable
functions to the cursor motion keys, Insert, and Delete. See the
comments in the file for specifics.

Please let me know if (a) you find this useful or (b) you find any
bugs / incompatabilities / things I forgot.

I think the keyboard reassignment in previous versions of Kermit was
different; to the best of my knowledge this will *only* work with 2.31

Enjoy!

; Emacs keyboard layout for Kermit 2.31
; by Joel Spolsky. Save this in a file, then
; initialize it by issuing the kermit command
; take filename
; It will set up the keyboard to allow ALT to be used
; as a meta-key, and will allow cursor keys to be used
; with emacs.

; First, define all the ALT keys to send ESC+key
; to simulate "meta"

;; These 6 special keys for extended (PS/2) keyboards:

set key \4435 \23 ;; Delete is like ^W - kill to ring
set key \4423 \1 ;; Home is ^A
set key \4431 \5 ;; End is ^E
set key \4425 \27V ;; Page up is Esc-V
set key \4433 \22 ;; Page dn is ^v

set key \328 \16 ;; up cursor is ^P
set key \331 \2 ;; left cursor is ^B
set key \333 \6 ;; right cursor is ^F
set key \336 \14 ;; down cursor is ^N
set key \4427 \2 ;; left cursor on extended kbd
set key \4432 \14 ;; down cursor on extended kbd

set key \5491 \27b ;; ctrl-left cursor is M-b (left word)
set key \5492 \27f ;; ctrl-right cursor is M-f (right word)

;; move kermit's screen scroll (playback) features to Alt- Home,End,PgUp,PgDn
;; (if you are on an extended keyboard, the PgUp, PgDn, Home and End
;; keys are reassigned to do logical emacs things. If you wish to scroll
;; the kermit memory, use ALT with the keys).
