SYNOPSIS

#include <vgakeyboard.h>

typedef void (*__keyboard_handler) (int scancode, int press);

void keyboard_seteventhandler(__keyboard_handler handler);
void keyboard_setdefaulteventhandler(void);

DESCRIPTION

These functions allow to define a keyboard event handler which is called by keyboard_update(3) and keyboard_waitforupdate(3) when a keyboard event occured.

press is KEY_EVENTRELEASE or KEY_EVENTPRESS if key scancode was released or pressed. Actually the first value is 0 and the second is 1 which are so intuitive s.t. you may use them in your program.

Even you specify an own handler, svgalib will check for <Alt>-F* or <Ctrl>-C for console switches or generation of SIGINT if allowed by keyboard_translatekeys(3).

Calling keyboard_setdefaulteventhandler() reinstates the default handler which maintains the tables used by keyboard_getstate(3) and keyboard_keypressed(3). It is probably a good idea to call keyboard_clearstate(3) after reenabling the default handler.

Here are the supported scancodes. The names of the #defines originate from the US keyboard layout, for other countries, they’ll refer to the key in the same physical location, but the keycap will have a different inscription. For the list below, add SCANCODE_ in front of the names to get the right name for your C source. That means, if it lists BACKSLASH below, you shall use SCANCODE_BACKSLASH as symbol in your program. In addition to the names below we also have SCANCODE_0 - SCANCODE_9, SCANCODE_KEYPAD0 - SCANCODE_KEYPAD9, SCANCODE_A - SCANCODE_Z, and SCANCODE_F1 - SCANCODE_F12.

The other key names are ESCAPE, MINUS, EQUAL, BACKSPACE, TAB, BRACKET_LEFT, BRACKET_RIGHT, ENTER, LEFTCONTROL, SEMICOLON, APOSTROPHE, GRAVE, LEFTSHIFT, BACKSLASH, COMMA, PERIOD, SLASH, RIGHTSHIFT, KEYPADMULTIPLY, LEFTALT, SPACE, CAPSLOCK, NUMLOCK, SCROLLLOCK, CURSORUPLEFT, CURSORUP, CURSORUPRIGHT, KEYPADMINUS, CURSORLEFT, CURSORRIGHT, KEYPADPLUS, CURSORDOWNLEFT, CURSORDOWN, CURSORDOWNRIGHT, KEYPADPERIOD, LESS, KEYPADENTER, RIGHTCONTROL, CONTROL, KEYPADDIVIDE, PRINTSCREEN, RIGHTALT, BREAK, BREAK_ALTERNATIVE, HOME, CURSORBLOCKUP, PAGEUP, CURSORBLOCKLEFT, CURSORBLOCKRIGHT, END, CURSORBLOCKDOWN, PAGEDOWN, INSERT, and REMOVE.

It is very likely that both are at least to some extent are due to Harm Hanemaayer <H.Hanemaayer@inter.nl.net>.
