I am a Brit working on Unix in a French company - I am more or less used to the French keyboard now, but one problem I still have is typing a tilde (~).
The best I can do is either:
which gives me 2 tildes, or
which gives me one. Is there a quicker way? I know it's not a big thing but it drives me crazy!
I am on Windows XP (version française!) but spend most of my time using Putty to talk to Red Hat boxen.
