       byobu-ctrl-a - Configure	Byobu's	ctrl-a behavior

       byobu-ctrl-a  is	an interactive program that allows a user to configure
       the behavior of the 'ctrl-a' key	sequence.

       Traditional GNU screen(1) uses ctrl-a as	its  escape  character,	 while
       GNU  emacs(1)  uses  ctrl-a  to move the	cursor to the beginning	of the
       line.  This conflict has	caused unending	amounts	of grief among Screen,
       Byobu, and Emacs-mode users.

       Thus,  this program exists to allow each	user to	choose the behavior of
       ctrl-a in their local environment.

       This manpage and	the utility were written  by  Dustin  Kirkland	<kirk->	for  Ubuntu systems (but may be	used by	others).  Per-
       mission is granted to copy, distribute and/or modify this document  and
