Hi. I am a complete noob to programming, but have done some visual programming in the past.
So I want to make a small project to practice (always easier to learn that way).
I have a dual computer setup with a mac and a pc. And I only use the mac keyboard.
When I connect the mac keyboard to the pc, weird stuff happens to the ctrl/alt/cmd keys, since they layout is different from a pc keyboard layout.
Normally I would get by this, but doing some registry editing stuff, but I would like a more easy solution (much more complex to make, yes, but everyone needs a hobby-project:) )
So my project is this:
Make a mac keyboard to windows keyboard “translater” program.
In the long run, I want it to run on an arduino board, that is connected between the keyboard and a pc/mac.
Could anyone give me a rough idea of some keywords I can google?
Some pointers and hits would be greatly appreciated.
For starters, I would like some hints towards getting a keyboard input and converting it do a different output.
It might take me forever to finish, but I want to learn.
Thanks a lot:)
