Re: insert/overwrite-mode toggle

Start emacs and go to the *scratch* buffer. Press Control-q. Now hit your
insert key. You will see some weird characters, something like ^[[1~.
Remember those characters.  Then in you .emacs file, put in a line like:
(global-set-key "\e[1~" 'overwrite-mode)
where the [1~ are the characters you remembered, minus the first ^[.

Hope this helps.
