What's the meta key for GNU Nano in ? Can't seem to copy text using the usual meta+6 combo.

@jackivan88 Not sure about nano, but with tmux it turned out to be the Esc key. I *think* there are some terminal options that can let you use a different key as meta, but I haven't explored those.

@thfr I'll have to check when I'm back at my OpenBSD install to see. Thanks for the tip, we'll see how it goes!

@thfr it appears to work! I want to have one of the students test it on their setup as well to be sure. Thanks for pointing us in the right direction!
