Hello. If there are any man pages or articles or FAQs about this topic
that would be good to read, please refer to them.

Running Xubuntu 12.04 and the latest st on a ThinkPad laptop, these are
the results I get, correlated with the results of infocmp. I got the
output from the keys by running cat and hitting the keys.

st, TERM is st-256color

| home | end | insert | delete | up | down | left | right |
| ^[[H | ^[[4~ | ^[[4h | ^[[P | ^[[A | ^[[B | ^[[D | ^[[C |
| home | kc1, kend | smir | dch1 | cuu1 | | | cuf1 |

Why do the escape sequences produced by down and left arrow keys have no
match in infocmp? Why does home key not produce khome (\E[1~) escape

Here is the info I used to determine the third row of my table.

~$ infocmp
