Having just recently bought a nice new keyboard, I was devastated that
it no longer featured the "Menu" key (usually next to the right ALT key),
instead being replaced by a "FN" key which allowed access to the
multimedia keys.

This presented me with a serious dilema, as it was no longer possible
to access the Menus via their keyboard shortcuts. This was unacceptable
to me, (I honestly didn't realise how much I used them until I couldn't)
so I decided it was either lose the keyboard (it was damn expensive and
very nice), or come up with a solution. So here it is!

NoMenuKey is a very small program that simply installs an input-handler
and converts the "R-Alt" key to a "R-Command" key by changing the qualifier
mask.

You can install this program anywhere you like and can run it either from
WB or Cli, and once run, it will sit in the background until it receives a
CTRL_C. This can be done with various utilities, or by using
"Break NAME NoMenuKey" in a shell. The one drawback with this method is
that you lose the ability to do a hard-reset, although compared to not
having access to the menu shortcuts, I feel this is a minor inconvenience :)

Anyway, if like me, you've bought a nice new keyboard with the missing
"Menu" key , I hope you find this program useful.
