I never used macos so much since the porting of portage, so this's the first time I use (for a long time) his "unix core"
The question is: "where on the hell are this keys?!" :mad:
    page down
    page up
    home
    end
    {
    }

Using a terminal emulator (usally iterm) I've become crazy searching this keys :evil:
Obviously I've googled but I don't find anything...
I'd like to use this keys while using an editor like vim (I know there're some shortcuts for vim but I'd like to use this keys while in INSERT mode)

Forgive me if the post is a little confused but I've got a heavy day (university's exam and mac keyboard)

Mhh... sorry but I don't find anything useful... :(

I don't understand way you get this keys working under your ibook G4 with Panther... it seems we have the same configuration! (except for the IT keyboard layout)

I followed your suggestions and I found that:
{ = alt + shift + [
[ = alt + è (italian keyboard)
But I'm still unable to find pg ud/down, home, end... :(

try shift+fn+left arrow for home and fn+up should be page up. if that doesn't work you can try adding a shift.
