Thanks for the reply A.J.

What I ended up using, and which worked perfectly was GetKeyEvent, TranslateKeyEvent(),
KeyEventToString(), and GetKeyEventChar(), all in the keyboard unit.

The keyboard unit gives you very good control/access to keyboard events, without mucking
with anything! The unit is a bit unfriendly, but powerful! A very good trade off.

The target platform for this job is Linux; but I believe the source should port to windows
as well.
