EditKeys allows you to edit or create keymap files
(They are found in the Devs/Keymaps/ directory of the
boot disk). When you press a key on the Amiga's
keyboard, the key press is translated by the keymap
file that the system is using. For instance, British
Amigas use the keymap 'gb'. Different keymaps can be
found on the system disks supplied with your Amiga.
All aspects of a keymap can be changed with EditKeys
to give either minor or radical alterations; you
could e.g. redefine the numerical keypad to produce
strings of up to 255 characters. You can define or
remove dead keys, modifiable keys, whether keys repeat
when held down or not, whether Caps Lock causes the
key's output to be Shifted, etc.
Changes from 1.5:
* Enforcer hit removed.
* New 'Put Char' menu item, which allows the insertion
of any character into the editing string. This is
very useful when changing keys to produce characters
that do not usually appear on keymaps (e.g. characters
with a numeric value < 32).
* If 'Create Icons?' selected, when saving a keymap a
new icon will only be written if an old one does not
Kickstart 1.2 required, Kickstart 2.04 or higher
recommended. If running Kickstart 1.3 or lower,
arp.library is required to be in the LIBS: directory.
