A quick-and-dirty solution of your problem is a keyboard remapper. A simple remapper is trivial, it's only a system wide PM hook, but it will work only with PM applications (no full screen, no DOS, no windows sessions).

I have such simple remapper at home. I can send it to you (tomorrow, I am writing from my work, where I am forced to use - eee - how is it called in a civilized society ... ). If you want it then send me an email at hajek@vuv.cz

You can also look around whether somebody has something better than a PM hook.

Hmm I would be interested of the keyboard remap tool as well, so if you don't mind you could just add it as attachment to a reply posting.

Time to go to www.os2ezine.com (16 November, 2004 issue) and read all about keyboard mapping.

Another info can be found in EDM/2. The article there has even some usable utilities attached. But all this usually does not suffice for defining a language specific keyboard.

My PM hook has the following features:
- Table driven, i.e., language independent. Everyone can create his own definition suitable for his own language.
- Up to 8 dead keys, each of them can redefine up to 40 chars.
- Caps Lock sensitive.
- In fact, it's a keyboard switcher switching getween "unremapped" and "remapped" keyboards.

On the other hand:
- It's a "private app", that means quick-and-dirty solution. Sufficiently functional but not too representable
- Does not work with Lotus Smart Suite for some unknown reason.
- Needs changing the configuration table if you want Open Office. That's because Open Office uses CP1250 and not CP850 or CP852 (it's a winblows clone, not an OS/2 app). Moreover, the Caps Lock sensitivity does not work with Open Office for some unknown reason.
