in thread On my keyboard, Caps lock is:

It was a tough road to find a typewriter that could manage a Turing-complete language, but get the right typeball on an IBM Selectric, and a few tweaks to the gcc compiler...

Not quite. If you set the capslock key on a typewriter, pressing the shift key will unset it. You could set the keyboard on W2K to behave this way.

    To explain to anyone who missed it: On a typewriter, capslock held shift down, so shift released the lock and the lock was released. It did not reverse the effect, that is, type in smallcaps even though capslock was held down.
