    Keystrokes are just integers. Extra keys (F1, F2, Right-Arrow, etc) are actually two keystrokes. Valid keystrokes are 0 - 255. With combination keys, IIRC, the first "keystroke" is a zero, and then you read an additional "keystroke" which translates into the "real keystroke".

    Search the board or Google and you should find tons of examples on the topic.

    A slight correction on valid range, this is also dependant on what type of "character set" you're reading. Unicode? Well then you've got a whole different set of numbers. Visit google and this board's search function.

    Hope is the first step on the road to disappointment.

    i found what i meant, i mean:

    KEY[KEY_ESC], this way i can use a do{ }while(KEY[KEY_ESC] for a quick exit
    In order of learned:
    HTML - Mastered
    CSS - Enough to use
    SSI - Mastered
    PHP - Advanced
    C/C++ - Current Project
