Subject: Key Swap With LOG And CT
Message-ID: <9402080819.AA17107 at greylock.local>

Last summer, there was some interest expressed here in a keyboard-remapping
utility that would work with CT.  I do not believe there was a satisfactory
resolution.  I tried the suggested DKEY program and found it didn't work
(for me).

Well, I've found a keyboard-remapper that DOES work with both N6TR's LOG and
K1EA's CT.  It's called RBKEYSWP (by Ralf Brown), and it's available from
several FTP sites.  I tested it on my 386 with both LOG and CT, and it
worked FB!

Bad news:  RBKEYSWP.COM is hard-coded to swap <ESC> with tilde/backquote and

Good news:  RBKEYSWP.ASM is included and is easily modified.  I had no
trouble modifying it to only swap <ESC> with tilde and leave my poor L-ctrl
alone.  I'm sure other swaps are easily coded, but you'd have to know the

Bad news:  It takes an assembler, linker, and perhaps EXE2BIN to make a
modified .COM file.

Here's the FTP-site info.  Although the sizes of the .ZIP files differ,
the contents are identical.  73 and good luck!  --John/K2MM
