KEYLIB Keyboard Library

Some of the games on this site use KEYLIB as their keyboard input library. KEYLIB is a small, simple library for reading a standard IBM PC/XT/AT keyboard. As well as the usual ASCII keypress functions, it allows scanning any key by scancode to check its key up/key down status. This means you can use it to check for shift keys used alone, or combinations of non-shift keys.

KEYLIB is provided in source and binary formats for the OpenWatcom C compiler. It contains a simple demonstration program and full documentation.
