Take Command / TCC Help v. 25

These directives apply to TCC command line editing. They are in effect whenever TCC requests input from the keyboard, including during command line editing and the DESCRIBE, ESET, INPUT, LIST, QUERYBOX, and SELECT commands. You can redefine the keys using the TCC OPTION / Keyboard dialog. The key directives are saved in the [Keys] section in TCMD.INI.
