Carriage return or ‘Enter’ ?

There was a recent question about how to access F15 on a modern keyboard which prompted some reminiscence of 'real' 5250 keyboards.

So How many of us still have the old 'Enter' key enabled rather than using 'carriage return' ?

(For the young folk out there, carriage return (CR) is the big key showing a down and left arrow at the right hand side of the alphabetic portion of the keyboard. Old hands will remember that 'enter used to be down at the bottom right, approximately where the right hand side control key is now - not the far right 'enter' which is so labelled'

Me ! ?

I went the typewriter route and use carriage return (fingers on the home keys )

happy solstice

    I learned with a real terminal and so now when I see the emulator screen I automatically use the "real" enter, but I will switch to a PC window and automatically use the CR without even realizing it
