Keyboard codes[edit]

Most modern computer keyboards don't actually send ASCII codes, but scancodes. It is generally left up to the keyboard driver and/or application software to provide any required translation. - 05:47, 17 March 2007 (UTC)

Control-Z Merge[edit]

I propose Control-Z be merged with this since Control-Z doesn't seem to have any merit as a page on its own, mostly relating to this one and getting things wrong. We can salvage what's decent there (if anything) and pull it in here -Rushyo Talk 13:09, 23 November 2012 (UTC)

Control Z is a keystroke while Substitute is a character, while very closely related they are separate entities so my vote would be to keep separate pages even if one of them is just a stub. As new OS's appear it may be that Control-Z ends up having other purposes unrelated to the SUB character - Paraphrased (talk) —Preceding undated comment added 11:44, 28 December 2012 (UTC)
Completely hypothetical future events aren't a very compelling case, and combining distinct but highly related concepts into a single article is commonplace. I agree with Rushyo this should be merged. (talk) 17:38, 14 January 2013 (UTC)
Agree, merge. Control-Z and SUB are identical characters, even if the former is technically a keystroke used to generate the latter. They would be better presented as two sections of the same article, one dealing with the keystroke (for editors, shells, etc.), and the other for the SUB character code itself. — Loadmaster (talk) 20:19, 14 January 2013 (UTC)
