understand and agree.

do you mean that, for example, if args[0] starts by "/" then filename =

Actually if prefix (that it's a variable) is "/" then args[0] acts as a
filename.  Would be like "///test/filename" and it's a valid directory.

unloading the module restores the original keyboard (so, English one). I save
the original one when the module is loaded.
