       vga_getkey - read a character from the keyboard without waiting


       #include <vga.h>

       int vga_getkey(void);


       Read a character from the keyboard without waiting; returns zero if no key pressed and the
       ASCII value otherwise. This function must not be  used  in  raw  keyboard  mode.  In  this
       situation use keyboard_getstate(3) or keyboard_keypressed(3) instead.

       It  is  very  likely  that  both  are  at  least to some extent are due to Harm Hanemaayer

       Occasionally this might be wrong. I hereby asked to be excused by the original author  and
