    This is new and somewhat experimental. Your comments and suggestions are welcome.

    ftp://lucky.syr.edu/4plugins/qkey.zip

    QKEY.TXT appears below.

    QKEY is intended for actions which produce no output. Pressing a qkey will
    have no effect on the current command line and will visually corrupt the
    current command line if the keystroke produces any output so use "> NUL"
    and/or "2> NUL" in qkey commands if it is appropriate. Key codes can be
    obtained with "QKEY SHOW" (see below). At least for now, if you want qkeys automatically loaded, you'll have to use "QKEY LOAD" in your TCSTART file.

    For example (using F7)

    QKEY 65601 ACTIVATE "v - *" 2^> NUL

    I use that one to switch to the "V" file viewer (if it's running).



    QKEY N [<command>] | SAVE [profile] | LOAD [profile] | LIST | CLEAR | SHOW


    QKEY N - deletes the qkey associated with key code N

    QKEY N <command> - creates a qkey associated with key code N. Whitespace in
    <command> is OK but special characters must be protected

    QKEY SAVE [profile] - saves the current qkeys in HKCU\QKEY\DefaultProfile
    or, if a profile name is specified, inHKCU\QKEY\profile; qkeys in the
    profile not matching current ones are deleted

    QKEY LOAD [profile] - loads the default/specified QKEY profile; current
    qkeys are deleted

    QKEY LIST - shows the current qkeys

    QKEY CLEAR - deletes the current qkeys

    QKEY SHOW - without a trailing space and without pressing <Enter>
    ... will display the key code of the next key pressed.
    QKEY SHOW will not appear in the history. To make it easy to use
    repeatedly, you might ALIAS @Alt-q QKEY SHOW (or something similar).

    Build 2 is a little improved.

    Build 2: Default profile is now HKCU\QKEY\Default.
    Added support for auto-load and/or auto-save.
    "showkey" replaces "qkey show".

    QKEY is intended for actions which produce no output. Pressing a qkey will
    have no effect on the current command line and will visually corrupt the
    current command line if the keystroke produces any output so use "> NUL"
    and/or "2> NUL" in qkey commands if it is appropriate. Key codes can be
    obtained with "QKEY SHOW" (see below). At least for now, if you want qkeys
    automatically loaded, you'll have to use "QKEY LOAD" in your TCSTART file.

    For example (using F7)

    QKEY 65601 ACTIVATE "v - *" 2^> NUL

    I use that one to switch to the "V" file viewer (if it's running).

    To get key codes, use "showkey".

    "Showkey" is not a command. If "showkey" appears at the beginning of a
    command line, in lower case, and without anything trailing, the QKEY
    key handler will print the code of the next key pressed and give you
    a new prompt. If you intend to do this a lot, I recommend a keystroke
    alias similar to the following.

    ALIAS @Alt-q showkey

    Warning: When running in TCMD, TCC (and so the QKEY key handler) will
    not see many possible key combinations.

    QKEY Syntax:

    QKEY N [command]
    SAVE [profile]
    LOAD [profile]
    LIST
    CLEAR
    AUTO /L(oad) | /S(ave) [profile | 0]

    QKEY N - deletes the qkey associated with key code N

    QKEY N <command> - creates a qkey associated with key code N. Whitespace in
    <command> is OK but special characters must be protected

    QKEY SAVE [profile] - saves the current qkeys in HKCU\QKEY\Default
    or, if a profile name is specified, inHKCU\QKEY\profile; qkeys in the
    profile not matching current ones are deleted

    QKEY LOAD [profile] - loads the default/specified QKEY profile; current
    qkeys are deleted

    QKEY LIST - shows the current qkeys

    QKEY CLEAR - deletes the current qkeys

    QKEY AUTO /L | /S [profile | 0] - configures automatic loading or saving; 0 = off;

    </command></command></enter></command></command></command>
