NAME KBD_READEVENT -- Return the next keyboard event. FUNCTION Read raw keyboard events from the keyboard and put them in the data area of the iORequest. If there are no pending keyboard events, this command will not be satisfied, but if there are some events, but not as many as can fill IO_LENGTH, the request will be satisfied with those currently available. IO REQUEST io_Message mn_ReplyPort set if quick I/O is not possible io_Device preset by the call to OpenDevice io_Command KBD_READEVENT io_Flags IOB_QUICK set if quick I/O is possible io_Length the size of the io_Data area in bytes: there are sizeof(inputEvent) bytes per input event. io_Data a buffer area to fill with input events. The fields of the input event are: ie_NextEvent links the events returned ie_Class is IECLASS_RAWKEY ie_Code contains the next key up/down reports ie_Qualifier only the shift and numeric pad bits are set ie_SubClass, ie_X, ie_Y, ie_TimeStamp are not used, and set to zero RESULTS This function sets the error field in the IORequest, and fills the IORequest with the next keyboard events (but not partial events).
