/* keywatch.c 12-29-91 Robert Mashlan, Public Domain                *\

   DOS compiler portability modifications added by Bob Stout,

   This program monitors the keyboard interrupt, and stores the
   status of each key as to whether it is pressed or released.

   This is done by capturing interrupt 9, and watching the make/break
   codes.  The status is updated in the keys array, where 1 means
   that the key is pressed, while 0 means the key is released.  The
   key array is uses the scan code for an index instead of the ascii
   character.  It is simple enough to find the scan code for a key,
   just run this program and watch the display.

   The ekeys array will reflect the status of keys found on an AT
   keyboard.  For instance, the left and right alt keys are
   differentiated, as well as the edit control keys on the numeric
   keypad and the one not on the numeric keypad.

   Since this program installs an interrupt handler, it should be
   terminated normally, such the keyboard handler can be removed.
   The ^C/^Break exit is captured via signal(), but all possible
   exits should be trapped.
