char values for DOS app

I'm attempting to run a DOS app with this shell command:
put shell("dosapp.exe < input1.txt > output1.txt") into fld 2
The DOS app uses 'pageDown', 'arrowKeyRight' and 'arrowKeyDown' values
to advance through its menus. I tried putting those char values into my
'input1.txt' file by putting special placeholders in the data, then
converting them before writing the file, like this:
replace "#" with numtochar(65366) in tData
replace ">" with numtochar(65363) in tData
replace "+" with numtochar(65364) in tData
My initial test indicate something is amiss, but I don't know for sure
that these values are the problem.
My real question:
What values can I expect the DOS app to recognize as PageDown,
ArrowRight and ArrowDown values?
Thanks in advance for any responses.
