ENABLENUMLOCK(1)            General Commands Manual           ENABLENUMLOCK(1)



NAME
       enablenumlock, disablenumlock - enable or disable the numlock key

SYNOPSIS
       enablenumlock

       disablenumlock

AVAILABILITY
       Available  only  on  Sun  386i systems running a SunOS 4.0.x release or
       earlier.  Not a SunOS 4.1 release feature.

DESCRIPTION
       When you press the "Num Lock" key and then press one of the  keys  num-
       bered  R1  through  R15 on the right keypad, the character on the upper
       part of the key is generated rather than the key's function.

       In previous releases, "Num Lock" was enabled only in DOS windows and in
       some  third-party  UNIX applications.  Currently, "Num Lock" is enabled
       by default for the right keypad in all SunView windows.

       enablenumlock re-enables "Num Lock" for applications that expect it  to
       be enabled.

BUGS
       The  default  enabling  of the "Num Lock" key is incompatible with some
       applications with special work around code to  enable  the  "Num  Lock"
       key.  These applications require the use of disablenumlock.  DOS appli-
       cations are not affected.
