when i use gujin for the first time i used ^T key sequences to
switch to my native language (German).
When i tried to "set time offset" by pressing my "+" or "-" key,
nothing happens and gujin returns to the setup screen.
That was annoying.
At that moment the program should should jump to subroutine showing message
"unkown command (keycode 0xnnmm)" like in other wrongs key presses.
For normal PC users this information is nothing worth.
As i know 0xnn contains flags for which modifiers keys like shift, CRTL,
ALT are pressed. The value of 0xmm seems to represents the ASCII value of
the key. So it would be nice if an additional code sequence is there
expressed in the following example c coding like
printf (" '%c'=0x%x" ,keycode,keycode)
Then a message like "unknown command (keycode=0xnnmm 'z'=0xmm)"
gives the normal user a better feedback, what has happened.
Later i tried "change command line" and recognized that language is changed
to German but keyboard is obviously QWERTY. Then of course i used
menu entry "change keyboard type" to switch to german QWERTZ keyboard.
And keys works as expected.
So it would be nice if gujin would also show the active keyboard type
on the main screen nearby the "Lang" or "font" information. So that user
knows was is going on.
I would be nicer if guijn could chain the language with the corresponding
keyboard type. So when user switch from english to german language , also
the keyboard type changes from QWERTY-uk to QWERTZ-de.
Hope my annotations can be applied in newer versions of gujin.
