In Xorg, alt+tab will switch between open windows

the xmodmap script trunk/support-files/Dyalog-Keyboard/apl.xmodmap maps both Alt key as well as the meta ("Windows") keys to the APL modifier key.

My xmodmap script reverts the Alt keys back to their pre- trunk/support-files/Dyalog-Keyboard/apl.xmodmap state, so that Xorg's alt+tab behaviour is unaffected. APL glyphs are still available through the Meta-keys as the modifiers.

Hi Alex,

what exactly is the effect of that change?

Hi Jürgen,

I'm not sure if this is a significant enough change to add as a new file in GNU APL, but this change augments the Dyalog keyboard layout to have alt+tab "work". This behaviour is disabled on my computer (Debian) when I enable that layout:

address@hidden:~/aplstuff$ diff apl.tab.xmodmap trunk/support-files/Dyalog-Keyboard/apl.xmodmap
< keycode  64 = Alt_L  Meta_L
> keycode  64 = Mode_switch  Meta_L
< keycode 108 = Alt_L Meta_L
> keycode 108 = Mode_switch Meta_L

File is attached
