in thread Extreme programming... in perl?

i wish we could just do that!

we use unix/linux/bsd- you use xmodmap to set qwerty/dvorak in those OSes. so you have to keep switching that way... in fact, i can't think of any OS in which you set qwerty or dvorak in the keyboard itself- all the ones i'm familiar with (mac, windows variations, *nix) set the keyboard mapping with software. so with your idea, we'd have two keyboards, but they would both be using the same mapping at the same time. not much help.

    If you are willing to have 2 computers, you can hack something up with a shared session using something like screen or vnc so that two keyboards going to 2 computers show up on a shared session on one screen.

    There are also many utilities that can help you switch in a hurry. Or some special keyboards to make it very easy. (Dunno how well it works though.)
