26.7.5 Term Mode

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:

findex term-char-mode

C-c C-j

Switch to line mode. Do nothing if already in line mode.

C-c C-k

Switch to char mode. Do nothing if already in char mode.

The following commands are only available in Char mode:

C-c C-c

Send a literal C-c to the sub-shell.

C-c C-x

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’.
