NAME

       keyboard_seteventhandler,  keyboard_setdefaulteventhandler  -  define an event handler for
       keyboard events in raw mode

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.
