Ah.  Now I see.  

It's been a while ... is ReadKey blocking?  If so, is there a
non-blocking function?  I recall I used to access the keyring in the
BIOS directly and I believe that is not proper (or possible).

I would have to insert this check inside a loop doing the real work. 
Well, I guess I could make a non-blocking ReadKey using KeyPressed.

Thanks again for your help.
