Release 1.01
------------
Added additional (reserved) Amiga scancodes initially defined in Os 4 and now in
Os 3.2.
Most of these new scan codes cannot be generated by native Amiga hardware, some
of the
scan codes stem from the CD32, and some are used by third-party hardware, for
example the
mouse wheel codes. The 1.01 release is now able to generate the corresponding
scan codes
and bind them to suitable PS/2 keys. This allows emulating a CD32 keypad on a
standard PC
keyboard, for example. Most of these additional scan codes are probably not
handled by
most Amiga programs, but they have been added for completeness.


Release 1.00
------------
The first Aminet release.

...with special thanks for the hardware to Jens Schönfeld


What is this:

Lyra3Tool is a small shell program that is used to re-program the Lyra 3
PS/2 to Amiga keyboard adapter. Lyra 3 is sold by Individual Computers,
Jens Schönfeld, and allows you to use a regular PS/2 (not USB!) keyboard
with your Amiga.

Lyra 3 the latest and greatest version of this keyboard adapter. It's
new feature is that its keyboard mapping - from PS/2 to Amiga - is 
programmable in software. And Lyra3Tool is the official tool for this.


Lyra3Tool can be used both from the Shell and the Workbench, even though
its primary purpose is to be run from Shell with a keyboard remapping
file as argument.

There is currently no GUI (graphical user interface) to setup a keyboard
remapping, but the mapping files are quite straight-foreward to setup
with an editor of your choice, it is just a series of <key> = <value>
equations where the left hand side is the PS/2 (PC) key and the right
hand side is the Amiga key to assign it to. An example is included,
and an extensive guide explains you how all the logic works.


A guide (as said) and an installer is included. Please install by the
installer.
