I know that in terminal, one can remap right option -> meta. This lets you do nice UNIX commands such as META-F (which goes forward a word), META-B, etc. However, if you try doing OPTION-F outside of terminal, you get something like this: ƒ.
Is there a way to disable the alt characters for the right option key to make it like terminal meta?
The CTRL shortcuts (like CTRL-F or A) work well in OSX, but it doesn't seem possible to use the META ones.
