RedHat Feed Input to a script running on bash

Hi Sir,

I am just learning bash scripting and I came across a challenge.

I need to input F11 to a script among many text inputs.

For all the text inputs i did following.

# sh test.sh < input.txt

where input.txt contains all the text inputs in new lines.

This worked fine until i came across a input which is F11 or Escape.

Please guide me how to handle this.
# 2  
What does f11 map to in unicode or ascii? What is in the sh script?
