I actually set my French keyboard to US qwerty to mitigate this type
of problem. A lot of software designed for programmers completely
ignore non US layouts (keyboard shortcuts are a common problem).
I still make mistakes from time to time, but I've mostly muscle
memorized the layout.
When I had an Apple //e, French version, we had a switch on the lower right end of the
computer / keyboard. It allowed to type either in Qwerty or in Azerty (French keyboard
layout). The keyboard had double marking...
I typed French texts with Azerty, I programmed (mostly Basic and Pascal at the time...)
with Qwerty. Indeed, an interesting exercise...
Today, I can do all my tasks with an Azerty keyboard, and I nearly never have a problem
with AltGr or similar. Only the ^ is problematic in some cases.
Back on topic, this thread reminds me of Grunt: http://luaforge.net/projects/grunt/
I briefly tried it but I have little needs in command line automation, beyond what a
simple .cmd file can allow.
