Chapter 24. The Emacs Editor > Notes on the Tables

24.3. Notes on the Tables

Emacs commands use the Control key and the Meta key—a system-neutral way to describe a function-changing modifier key. On a Mac, this corresponds to the Option key. (This behavior is set through the Terminal applications' preferences—see Chapter 18.)

In this chapter, the notation C- indicates that the Control key is pressed at the same time as the character that follows. Similarly, M- indicates the use of the Meta, or Option key on Mac OS X: either hold Option while typing the next character, or press and release the Escape key followed by the next character.
