I thought there used to be a way with Zsh on the OSX where you could view a live print out of keys to bind event ids. Something like showkey -a where it’ll print out the bind key combo you just pressed. I tried the showkey brew package but that didn’t seem to work.

I’m trying to fix my alt+left&right arrow word jumping sequence when using a windows keyboard with my Mac. I can’t find the correct character for alt though.
