French DOS keyboard driver (beta) (Announce)

Based off Japheth's original Keybgr, French keyboard driver takes only a half-kilo bytes of (upper, if available) DOS memory.

*beta* - can easily be loaded/unloaded from a command prompt.

Please test, comment, and/or review (source, and minimal instructions in English and French languages, included).

<http://www.rootshell.be/~ninho/KBFRBETA.ZIP> 10,733 bytes.

Even if working fine, please do not redistribute the current bundle except to other potential testers with an understanding of *beta* status !

@ Ninho

silently updated French DOS keyboard driver (beta)

The *beta* download has been silently updated, i.e. without file name or URL change :

<http://www.rootshell.be/~ninho/KBFRBETA.ZIP> 11,003 bytes.

Documentation enhanced, few changes in the program itself, still shaved off a few bytes off.

Please download this new version for reference. I do not expect to have much to change for the final release.

Updated again - French DOS keyboard driver (beta)

> <http://www.rootshell.be/~ninho/KBFRBETA.ZIP> 10,981 bytes.

Cleanup : removed unused device driver stuff. Memory requirement dropped down to 464 bytes ( when loaded high as KBFR /F ).

This is likely to turn into the "official" version 1 release.
Please report any problems.

Updated - Now chaining control alt del

Following up to feed back received in the discussion thread, and as a compile time option, ON by default, KBFR now will pass the "3-finger salute" (and only it) along the int 15 chain. This is so all int 15/4F hookers, and the DOS itself, can be notified and prepared for a soft reboot.

Updated download <http://www.rootshell.be/~ninho/KBFRBETA.ZIP> 10,881 bytes.
