Term 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:
Switch to line mode. Do nothing if already in line mode.
Switch to char mode. Do nothing if already in char mode.
The following commands are only available in Char mode:
Send a literal C-c to the sub-shell.
A prefix command to conveniently access the global C-x commands. For example, C-c C-x o invokes the global binding of C-x o, which is normally ‘other-window’.
