Does anybody know how to type an ASCII character which is not on the keyboard,  in LINUX?
In Windows you can type ALT+137 for ASCII code 137, how do you do it in LINUX?

Where do you want to type that character?

in vi you could use ^KcO to type the copyright character,
or ^K'e for an accented e (:help digraphs)
