Description of problem:
make ctrl-left - right in xterm/gnome-term do word forw / backw and alt
left-right do window forw/backw. I'll attach a patch for joerc which does just that.

patch implementing the RFE
Have you submitted this feature request to the maintainers of joe? They're
still working on joe-2.9.8 - might be possible to get it in before the next
official release of joe (if the maintainers like it) before the next release
(hence, all later versions of joe will contain the feature).
I've also entered the bug there. Good to hear that joe is maintained again.
Unfortunately, this doesn't work in Konsole or on Linux virtual consoles.
I wonder if there's a more generic way of doing this...
No there is NOT an easier way, linux console doesn't send any special ESC-
sequences for cursor keys with modifiers. The fact that it doesn't work in
konsole is a konsole bug, which I already have reported (konsole is one big
bug, see bugzilla)
joe-2.9.8-2 will be in rawhide soon. I've included the request, but I'll have
to remove the keybindings if they break anything (I didn't do extensive
testing). You may download the packages immediately from:
Whoops, only got half of the request in.
Packages with the whole patch:
Sorry for the confusion.
