This global-set-key command works just fine in version 19 or later.

Using describe-key-briefly for F1 just results in a 11~ written at the
first line first column of the current file being visited.

I believe the vt100 key code for F1 is ESC11~ or ^[11~ so I tried
changing the global-set-key statement to:
    (global-set-key (quote "\e11~") (quote undo))
This produced the following error:
Key sequence ^[11~ uses invalid prefix characters.

I think that's because "\e1" is bound to the `digit-argument' command
and therefore can't be used as a prefix key.  Does Emacs 18 define the
`function-key-map' variable?
