Line-mode resources

These resources define the keys used in NVT line mode. They control editing operations on the input buffer.

In these resources, the values can be a single character, representing that key, or a 2-character sequence starting with ^, which represents the Ctrl modifier key pressed with another key. E.g., ^C is the Ctrl modifier key pressed with the c key.

The string ^? is the Delete key.
