41.9 Term Mode
The terminal emulator uses Term mode, which has two input modes. In
line mode, Term basically acts like Shell mode; see Shell Mode.
In char mode, each character is sent directly to the inferior
subshell, except for the Term escape character, normally C-c.
To switch between line and char mode, use these commands:
- C-c C-j
- Switch to line mode. Do nothing if already in line mode.
- C-c C-k
- Switch to char mode. Do nothing if already in char mode.
The following commands are only available in char mode:
- C-c C-c
- Send a literal <C-c> to the sub-shell.
- C-c char
- This is equivalent to C-x char in normal Emacs. For
example, C-c o invokes the global binding of C-x o, which
is normally ‘other-window’.
