Re: UEFI terminal console keyboard type extend for Putty


Ni, Ray
 

Another specific question: What's the meaning of "F1 and F2 don't work in UEFI Shell"? That sounds like a bug in Terminal driver.

Zhichao,
Can you please summarize what terminal types are supported by EDKII Terminal driver today and what you are going to
add through this RFC?

For the newly added terminal types, where is the mapping defined in public space?

Thanks,
Ray

Liming,
All the three types will be introduced.

By the way, fix one typo 'F4' for VT400 map key should be 'ESC [ 1 4 ~'.
Thanks,
Zhichao

Zhichao:
One clarification. What terminal type will be introduced? Xterm, VT400 and Linux?

Thanks

Subject: [edk2-rfc] UEFI terminal console keyboard type extend for Putty

Hi everyone,

Putty is a popular terminal console software in windows and it support various types of terminal keyboard type. I would
like to add most of the type support. Here is the key map info. Hope to get comments. Here is the type and mapping
table:
Putty function key map:
+=========+======+===========+=============+=============+=============+
| | EFI | | | | |
| | Scan | | | Normal | |
| KEY | Code | VT100+ | Xterm R6 | VT400 | Linux |
+=========+======+===========+=============+=============+=============+
| F1 | 0x0B | ESC O P | NONE | ESC [ 1 1 ~ | ESC [ [ A |
| F2 | 0x0C | ESC O Q | NONE | ESC [ 1 2 ~ | ESC [ [ B |
| F3 | 0x0D | ESC O R | ESC O R | ESC [ 1 3 ~ | ESC [ [ C |
| F4 | 0x0E | ESC O S | ESC O S | ESC [ 1 3 ~ | ESC [ [ D |
| F5 | 0x0F | ESC O T | ESC [ 1 5 ~ | ESC [ 1 5 ~ | ESC [ [ E |
| F6 | 0x10 | ESC O U | ESC [ 1 7 ~ | ESC [ 1 7 ~ | ESC [ 1 7 ~ |
| F7 | 0x11 | ESC [ V | ESC [ 1 8 ~ | ESC [ 1 8 ~ | ESC [ 1 8 ~ |
| F8 | 0x12 | ESC [ W | ESC [ 1 9 ~ | ESC [ 1 9 ~ | ESC [ 1 9 ~ |
| F9 | 0x13 | ESC [ X | ESC [ 2 0 ~ | ESC [ 2 0 ~ | ESC [ 2 0 ~ |
| F10 | 0x14 | ESC [ Y | ESC [ 2 1 ~ | ESC [ 2 1 ~ | ESC [ 2 1 ~ |
| Escape | 0x17 | ESC | ESC | ESC | ESC |
| F11 | 0x15 | ESC O Z | ESC [ 2 3 ~ | ESC [ 2 3 ~ | ESC [ 1 3 ~ |
| F12 | 0x16 | ESC O [ | ESC [ 2 4 ~ | ESC [ 2 4 ~ | ESC [ 1 4 ~ |
+=========+======+===========+=============+=============+=============+

For Xterm R6 F1 and F2, it is descripted as ESC+O+P and ESC+O+Q, but it doesn't work on UEFI shell. Same with the SCO
mode. So I would ignore the unworkable key map.
