    a b the quotes. Each number matches one byte. You can mix quoted text 
    28942894with constants like this: 
    28952895.PP 
    28962896.nf 
    2897 "String" \-1 0xBB 012 "more text" 
     2897"String" 34 0xBB 012 "more text" 
    28982898.fi 
    28992899.PP 
    2900 Note that 012 is an octal number.  \-1 is converted to 0xFF. 
     2900Numbers are always interpreted in hex. In the example above, "34" is 
     2901interpreted as 0x34. The prefix "0x" isn't really needed: we could type 
     2902"BB" instead of "0xBB". And "012" is interpreted as 0x12, not as an octal 
     2903number.

    29022905Here is a listing of the actions associated with each key that the 
    29032906Midnight Commander handles in the internal file viewer.
