Hola!

For windows shortcut overrides try WinKey
(http://download.com.com/3000-2344-913626.html?tag=lst-0-1). I use it a
lot with other programs (e.g. winkey-r brings up IRB :).

Subject: [HOWTO] -Set Key Sequence/Shortcut WINDOWS


/Hello Ruby fans/


I'm working in an small project to create a translation machine (
basically
English<->Spanish )
I'd love to call this program with a 'Key-Sequence shortcut' on Window$,
I have found some ways to do it but I am wondering if there's a ruby way
to set
the shortcut .



  THE IDEA IS:
  1 - Ctrl-C [ love ]
  2 - Key Sequence [Ctrl-Alt Z ]
  3 - Ctrl-V [amor]

class TranslateClipBoard
  
   include BabelFish
   require "win32/clipboard" 

   def initialize
         paste(translate(copy)) 
   end
   
   def copy
	clp = Win32::Clipboard.data
	return clp 
   end
        
    def paste(data)
         Win32::Clipboard.data = data
    end
    
    def translate(text)	            
	  res = BabelFish.translate("en_es",text)
	  return res 
    end   
end

class SetShortCut
    # ????????
end

    
  *could you recommend me a (SOAP/XML) free translation service on the
web to
suck the data from ? 
  
    Thanks -> Gracias
