New Input Primitives in Epsilon 10


int is_key_repeating()

The is_key_repeating( ) primitive returns nonzero if the user is currently holding down a key causing it to repeat. Epsilon can't detect this in all environments, so the primitive always returns 0 in that case.

int was_key_shifted()

The was_key_shifted( ) subroutine tells if the user held down Shift when pressing the current key. Some keys produce the same key code with or without shift.

Unlike the shift_pressed( ) primitive, which reports on the current state of the Shift key, this one works with keyboard macros by returning the state of the Shift key at the time the key was originally pressed. A subroutine must call was_key_shifted( ) at the time the macro is recorded for the Shift state to be recorded in the macro. Macros defined by a command file can use an E- prefix to indicate this.
