Description  :
This unit basically gives you an improved readkey (with the really inspired name readkeyextended) what it does is read the special characters (#0) and gives you a friendly name you can use in your program like say "UP_ARROW" and so and such...it also includes a procedure for getting all the scancodes I was too lazy to code (the Ctrl key combinations for example...) it's distributed as source only so you have to compile it, it's commented (probably rather poorly) and includes two awful demos, one with comments, one with only a few and no indents...or only a few, but it's object oriented, so it should be easy to understand...or so the latest blurb says
