NAME
       vga_getkey - read a character from the keyboard without waiting

SYNOPSIS
       #include	<vga.h>

       int vga_getkey(void);

DESCRIPTION
       Read  a character from the keyboard without waiting; returns zero if no
       key pressed and the ASCII value otherwise. This function	 must  not  be

AUTHOR
       This manual page	was edited by Michael Weller  <eowmob@exp-math.uni-es-
       sen.de>.	 The exact source of the referenced function as	well as	of the
       original	documentation is unknown.

       It is very likely that both are at least	to some	extent are due to Harm
       Hanemaayer <H.Hanemaayer@inter.nl.net>.

       Occasionally  this  might be wrong. I hereby asked to be	excused	by the
       original	author and will	happily	accept any additions or	corrections to
       this first version of the svgalib manual.
