#511 closed defect (duplicate)

It is hard to type a # on a uk keyboard

When I use the CCL IDE on my UK macbook pro, I cannot type the # character.

On all macintosh applications I use routinely, this character is available as alt-3 (shift three generates the 'pound sterling' currency symbol).

Pressing alt-3 in an editor or listener window appears to trigger the start of some emacs like command, causing C-U 3 to appear at the bottom of the window.

This fatally prevents me from writing lisp code in CCL's IDE from this keyboard.

Same problem as in ticket:182.

Please see the comments there. I just added an attachment there containing sample code that binds M-3 to a command that inserts a # character. You could load that file, and then it wouldn't be such a pain to type a #\# on a UK keyboard.
