The object of this project is to capture keys of a standard AT keyboard. They
can be stored, compiled as strings, and re-transmitted either to the PC or to
some other device, as the original key presses or as extracted commands
For example, the PIC could capture strings, and perform actions
sc:1329:040810[enter] to set the PIC's clock-calendar to 1:29pm, 4th August 2010
ky:[F1]a:1000:050810[enter] to simulate pressing F1 then 'a' at 10:00am on 5th August 2010
ir:94:2030:060810[enter] to send the number 94 by infra-red at 8:30pm on the 6th
[ ] indicates the code for a special key. [F1] has the value 0x05 for instance.
[enter] may not always be suitable for the string terminator. Perhaps [Esc] or
'<' or [Tab] for example as alternates

The key code itself would be stored if required for re-transmission In the s/w presented here, only the basic layout is shown. For example letters are all lower case. By detecting the Shift, Alt and Ctrl keys, the corresponding alternate layout can be displayed. This can be done by calculation, for example a (lower case) = 0x61, Shift a (or A, upper case) = 0x41 b = 0x62, B = 0x42 and so on, or by adding more tables, still using the key value as the pointer For example a Shift layout could be used to get Shift number characters - ! @ # $ etc For my project, I used arbitrary conversions for non-alphanumeric keys so that each key has a unique representation and assignment ;0x00 no conversion available (ie no key exists) ;0x20 to 0x7f LCD display code in ASCII ; ;0x80 to 0x8f function key, 0x80 + function key number ;0xf0 to 0xff special key, as assigned ; ;f0 Tab, f1 tilde, f2 left shift, f3 Ctrl, f4 Caps Lock, f5 right shift, f6 Enter ;f7 backslash, f8 backspace, f9 back space, fa Esc, fb Num Lock, fc Alt ; ;Note that right-hand versions of some same-name keys (eg Ctrl) are preceded by ;0xE0, as can be seen in the keyboard codes diagram below ; ;Others, such as the numeric keypad, are treated differently by the PC depending ;on the status of Lock keys. The transmitted code is still the same, only the ;interpretation (for display and usage etc) by s/w changes ;******************************* kb_loop call data_st ;detect and get key into kbdat1 ;================================================ ; Convert key data to key name ;================================================ kb_dec movlw upper(kb_codes);base address = kb_codes movwf tblptru movlw high(kb_codes) movwf tblptrh movlw low(kb_codes) addwf kbdat1,w ;add k/b value movwf tblptrl tblrd*+ movff tablat,temp0 ;get value from table movfw temp0 bz no_key ;no equivalent movlw 0xf0 cpfslt temp0 ;if temp0 < f0 bra special ;else f?

Get more data to determine which key it was, if more than one key was down For example, if 'A' was pressed and released, the sequence will be 0x1c 0xf0 0x1c If Left Ctrl '.', the sequence will be 0x14 0x49 0xf0 0x49 0xf0 0x14
ie Left Ctrl pressed, '.' pressed, '.' released, Left Ctrl released
Or the XOR result will be <> 0, meaning either a key is down and is repeating or a second key is pressed. Get more data. If the first key down is a special key such as Shift, Ctrl or Alt, then the next key detected may need to be looked up in an alternate conversion table. eg Shift ',' to make '<'
Include a timing routine to test for repeat. Default time before repeating starts is around 500ms. Time between repeats is the Typematic setting
