30 How can I emulate function keys on a PowerBook? (VT100 Emulation - ZTerm)

Connectix PowerBook Utilities (CPU) provides function key emulation
for PowerBooks. CPU is commercial software. If anyone knows of
freeware or shareware for emulating function keys, please let me
know.

I think there are two shareware solutions, available from the usual
sources.

One is Keyboard Plus. From the documentation:
Keyboard PLUS was written by me, Berrie Kremers. I can be reached
at:
Prof. Cobbenhagenlaan 464
5037 DJ Tilburg
The Netherlands
or via e-mail:
berrie@kub.nl
This is a special-purpose control panel designed just to provide
extended
keys on a PowerBook or other more limited keyboard.

Another is KeyQuencer, by Alex Levi Montalcini lmontalcini@pmn.it
This is a general-purpose programmable macro control panel. It's a
bit of
work to program all the extended keys you'd like to use, but
straightforward.
And it's a very useful control panel for many other things.

I've used both on my Powerbook (with Zterm 0.9) (all registered!).
I've
finally settled on KeyQuencer, because after it's programmed it can
do all
that Keyboard Plus can do, plus lots more.

Many thanks for the FAQ!
