460Detecting NumLock key press?
- Oct 12, 2001I've used MicroEMACS 3.9 on various UNIX systems for years and,
finally wanting to use it on Windows (98 & NT 4.0), I just discovered
JASSPA. Very impressive program!
QUESTION: Can JASSPA's UEMACS detect when the NumLock key is pressed?
In the various UNIX systems I've worked on, I've always been able to
cobble together an emulation of the VAX/VMS EDT VT-100 keypad,
internally via macro programming in the uemacs start-up file and/or
externally in the OS environment. In particular, everything depends
on the EDT "gold" key: the PF1 key, which happens to be the NumLock
key on the PC keyboard. Under Windows, for example, I can configure
both Exceed and the TTERMPRO telnet program to generate the PF1
escape sequence when the NumLock key is pressed. Under Linux, I use
the xmodmap program to configure X so that the PF1 escape sequence is
generated when NumLock is pressed.
I don't necessarily need the PF1 escape sequence generated, but can
JASSPA macros detect when NumLock is pressed. I've searched through
the documentation and tried various @cq- and @cqk-based commands, but
with no success regarding NumLock. A search of this group's archive
only turned up some messages regarding NumLock under UNIX.
Thanks for any help you can offer to a JASSPA newbie,
