Select/Create alternate sets of PFKeys
CHANGEPF.DWS Add a new "SET" of PFK mappings or switch between existing Program Function Key mappings. When first run, the utility SetPfk creates a default "SET" of PFKey mappings. You can use this utility to create other "SETS" of PFKey mappings, and switch between them. When run from the menu Ucmds/PFKeys, function "ChangePf" displays a screen showing all the available "SETS" (called modes) of PFKeys mappings as radio buttons, and in addition has 3 extra buttons:- 1) Copy - Creates a new "SET" of mappings, identical to the current "SET". 2) Edit - Allows you to edit the currently selected "SET" of PFKey mappings via utility EditPfk. 3) Exit - Exits from the utility. Some users find it usefull to program the PFKeys differently, depending on which APL application they are currently developing. EG When I am developing an application using Causeway, I like to have a pfkey set up to list all the Causeway screen variables starting with dbx_. However, when developing code to write HTML, I like to set pfkeys up to produce standard HTML tags. Thus I have two "SETS" of pfkes, one for use with Causeway, and the other for use with HTML. This utility allows me to switch between them.
