Right. I don't know why it's so slow. Maybe they're working on the server,

This is hard to understand. There must be a dash symbol, near the numbers.
In what language are you working with your Tablet?

I have no doubt that the dash and the escape key are somewhere.

Virtual dash is, hard escape is also.

You can write shell scripts, do awk and sed programming. You can compile
without any problem simple C and C++ programs with gcc and g++ from inside
the tablet (those needing only stdio work perfectly). You can program
assembler, Fortran, python, perl, etc... without need of a PC... You can ssh
any machine from your tablet, or VNC if there's no security issues... For me
it's a complete Debian system, though some features are not available.
