How do I type arbitrary unicode characters in xterm? - Unix & Linux Stack Exchange
xterm doesn't implement a hexadecimal-input feature because all of the text editors which handle UTF-8 provide their own equivalents (emacs, vim and vile, of course, even nano).

This could be useful in a shell script, but is not often mentioned.

====

As Thomas Dickey explains (https://unix.stackexchange.com/a/280468), xterm has no built-in way to input characters by codepoint. (Presumably because that's pretty bad UX.)

Vim does, though (http://vimdoc.sourceforge.net/htmldoc/mbyte.html#utf-8-typing): in insert mode, press Ctrl+V then u then 4 hex digits (or Ctrl+V then U then 8 hex digits).

For a more convenient way to input characters, use Compose, digraphs (which are Vim's built-in compose facility) (http://vimdoc.sourceforge.net/htmldoc/digraph.html#digraphs), or an input method suited to the language you're writing in.

Harmonizing with Vi-Nature
"Vim is not permanent. Nvi is not permanent. Vi itself is not permanent, only vi-nature. Emacs has vi-nature, nano has vi-nature, even Notepad has vi-nature. You narrow your sights, you grow attached, and hence you do not grasp the true value of your poem’s subject."

How FZF and ripgrep improved my workflow
In my never ending quest for simplicity I recently discovered FZF and ripgrep. Two command-line tools that have the potential to make every dag programming tasks easier. In this post I will explain how I use these tools to do things in a matter of keystrokes rather than having to re-google that command you keep forgetting <strong>every. single. time.</strong>.
