Swap Fn and Control Keys on mac

Motivation Behind This Cheatsheet

when using vim and bash on a mac, I had a hard time finding the control key on a mac keyboard

The Cheatsheet

I just had to use the very straight forward program:

then, of course, you have to use a knife, CAREFULLY pry off the fn and control keys, and swap them.

Further Discussion

I swapped the fn and control keys physically on my wireless mac keyboard and in software with the app I mentioned above. I have an imac with osx 10.6



PLEASE let me know if I'm doing something wrong, or if you have any suggestions or requests~
