Support for AZERTY keyboard

AZERTY keyboards are always a mess to deal with. Sadly that is what most french users use.

The problem is that we need to do combinations such as:

AltGr+2 to get '~'

AltGr+3 to get '#'

AltGr+4 to get '{'

AltGr+5 to get '['

But in TIC, pressing AltGr+5 switch of workplace instead so some characters are writable only through ascii code.

There should be an option to disable such shortcuts and simply rely only on function keys F1,F2,F3,F4,F5 as they have no other uses.

Thank you.

I have never known about AZERTY keyboard, I'll remove ALT+... shortcuts at all then.

Thanks

Well there is three major keyboard layouts:

AZERTY -> French speaking regions

QWERTZ -> German speaking regions

QWERTY -> Everywhere else

Maybe is possible to distinguish beetween ALT and ALTGR in SLD? ALT+12345 shortucut are really a nice shortcut.

SDL has LALT and RALT key values, so I can use only RALT as AltGr in this case
