EditKeys allows you to edit or create keymap files (They are found in the
Devs/Keymaps/ directory of the boot disk). If you don't know about these
files, then perhaps I should explain.

When you press a key on the Amiga's keyboard, the key press is translated by
the keymap file that the system is using. For instance, British Amigas use
the keymap 'gb'. Different keymaps can be found on the system disks
supplied with your Amiga. They are found in:

	AmigaDOS 1.3	Extras1.3:Devs/keymaps/
	AmigaDOS 2.0	Extras2.0:Devs/Keymaps/
	AmigaDOS 3.0	Storage3.0:Keymaps/

Under AmigaDOS 2.1 and higher keymaps have icons, and are loaded into the
system with the Input prefs editor (or the SetKeyboard command). With
earlier releases, keymaps are loaded with the SetMap program, found in the
System drawer of the boot disk. If you load a keymap different to your
native one, you will find typing some keys gives unexpected results
(especially the non-alphanumeric keys (eg. [,;,# )).

Keymaps can be changed to give more radical results; you could redefine the
numerical keypad to produce alphabetic characters if you wanted to, or you
can configure keys to output strings (useful for disk-menus etc.).
