   28 <para>This program puts your terminal in raw mode, eats keystrokes,
   29 and prints them back it you in a recognizable printed form. It will be
   30 useful if you're not certain what various keyboard keys are
   31 sending.</para>
   33 <para>Non-printables (and whitespace) are displayed as cookies
   34 surrounded by &lt; &gt;. The cookie will always contain an ASCII
