    switching key functionality

    I prefer Sun's keyboard layout to the PC's (the main
    difference being that the Caps Lock and Control key are
    switched) and I'm always hitting the wrong key (I
    use a Sun at work). I'm sure it's possible, at least
    in plain ol' dos, to write a tsr that switches the two,
    but I'm not too familiar with tsr programming. Any
    help would be appreciated.


    If you are using plain DOS without windows, you can reassign
    the keyboard using ANSI.SYS escape sequences. For example,

    To exchange the backslash and question mark keys by using each
    key's ASCII value, type the following escape sequence:


    A more complete explaination should be available in the DOS
    sub-directory by typing HELP ANSI.SYS.

    I don't know if this will help, tho, with "hard wired" keys like
    caps lock and control.

    Hope this helps.

      If you go to a large files site (ZDNet downloads?) and use the search phrase "keyboard remapper", you should be in business in short order.
