Announcing KBFR

- only 480 bytes resident memory used
- autoloads "high" if upper memory is available (can be overridden)
- *all DOS* make and version supported (please report if you find an incompatible case)
- should run on all "AT" class machines (80286 or newer rquired)
- can be enabled/disabled/removed without rebooting.

- especially recommended for boot floppies (if anybody still cares) as it occupies only ~2 kilobytes on disk (no extra data file needed)

- only French/français keyboard supported ATM sorry. I have a German version half finished, will finalise IF voluntary testers apply ONLY.

- license : free for use, open source.

KBFR v2.0 files have just been refreshed; users should update.

Reason: small bug fix. Under unusual circumstances the resident's placement in low DOS memory would end up being less than optimal.

Open source, free for use program.

Kbfr is now hosted along with FreeDOS at ibiblio :

http://www.ibiblio.o.../dos/keyb/kbfr/

Please use the above URL rather than the other host for your downloads.
Executable program and source files are available from that web page.

It drives the FR (FRench) KB (KeyBoard) :smiling9:

You know, AZERTY vs. QWERTY, etc.

And like
KeyB FR

As soon as German (and other languages) will hopefully be added, it's name will lose any meaningful reference to what it is. :cheers:

KBFRINT (as for KeyBoard FRench and INTernational) might be a more suitable name.... :happy_dance:

:cheers:

That's some idea :)
Actually I think the name for the German version will rather be KBGR...
