Remapping modified arrow keys

asked Jul 14, 2018 in vifm by anonymous

Is there a way to remap arrow keys with pressed Ctrl or Alt to something else? Ideally it would be <nop> becouse right now after pressing Ctrl + <right> Vifm copies current file 5 times.

showkey -a tells that Ctrl + <right> produces ^[[1;5C which explains Vifm's behavior.

You can map such sequences by using <esc> instead of ^[:

:noremap <esc>[1;5C <nop>

Perfect. Thank you.
