Yante is a terminal, mostly the same as xterm, except that it does not pretend to emulate a keyboard VT52/100/220. Yante is a terminal, mostly the same as xterm, except that it does not pretend to emulate a VT52/100/220 keyboard.Leaving the paradigm of the keyboard emulation legacy has several advantages. First, it allows a simple and uniform of the escape sequences to use keyboard. This means that Yante is less sensitive to client programs buggy (such as bash or libreadline) who fail to keep track of the status of VT100 keyboard. Secondly, it allows more accurate information - all modifier / key symbols can be represented, and an Emacs running inside Yante gets almost as accurate as keystrokes Emacs running in its own window, even the bizarre events as meta -hyper-kp-end. Thirdly, the translation is well defined, unlike the family xterm where there are several different ways of mapping keysyms X11 using softkeys VTxxx. There is no risk of encountering a terminfo description subtly wrong - if you get one working with Yante at all, it almost certainly did the right thing.
