Non US Keyboards used with Cygwin

If you have a keyboard that is non US when you type you find different characters appearing to what are marked on the keys. The solution to this is fairly trivial run xmodmap with the appropriate xmodmap file. The problem is you don’t have the file. They are all here as a compressed tar file or you can browse them here. I added a line to my .bashrc file xmodmap xmodmap.uk and that worked nicely.
