SET KEY <expN> TO <procedure name>
The SET KEY...TO command enables a user, running an application, to press a key which will cause execution of the specified procedure whenever the program is waiting for keyboard input. All keys, excluding a through z and 0 through 9, may be used.
NOTE: It is important to distinguish this command from SET KEY TO <expN> which has a different purpose.
On completion of the procedure, execution of the application continues from the point at which it left. Any valid Recital command can be used in the procedure. The <expN> is the INKEY() value of the key and <procedure name> is the procedure to be executed when the key is pressed. The executed procedure specified in the SET KEY command is passed three parameters with the values of PROCNAME(), PROCLINE(), and READVAR() respectively.
