INT scan_code

Scan_code is defined in the module mod_key and, in contrast to ascii, it contains the last key pressed, not the last character. That means “A” and “a” will have the same scan_code, but different ascii value.

Notes

Take a look at the scancodes for a complete list.

Example

import "mod_text"
import "mod_key"
import "mod_video"

process main()
begin
    set_mode(640,320);

    write( 0, 60, 10, 0, "Use lower and upper case characters to see the difference");
    write( 0, 60, 20, 0, "between ascii and scan_code.    (ESC to exit)  ");

    write( 0, 60, 40, 0, "ascii: ");
    write_var( 0, 110, 40, 0, ascii);

    write( 0, 26, 50, 0, "scan_code: ");
    write_var( 0, 110, 50, 0, scan_code);

    while ( !key(_esc))
        frame;
    end
end
