Hello, I'd like a library to detect any key press on a terminal (from
single characters to key combinations), so I can perform diverse
actions when one is pressed. I tried the charterm package, but it
seems not compatible with the Windows standard console, since it
reports it cannot find /dev/tty on startuup, or maybe I don't know how
to make it work?
Sorry, the `charterm` package only works when running on Unix-like
systems (GNU/Linux, a BSD-derived Unix, reportedly Mac OS X), not
Windows. I should be clear in the docs that it doesn't work on Windows.
For running on Windows, and responding to a Windows text command window,
you don't want `charterm`, and might need to do something with the Win32
console API (IIRC). Maybe you can do this with the Racket FFI.
Or, in the less common scenario of running on Windows, and dealing with
a terminal plugged into a serial port or other device, you'd probably
need a Win32 serial API, or API for whatever funky terminal interface
(Ideally, most CS people will normally run GNU/Linux or a BSD, for
promoting technical/engineering freedom and open science and such. But
sometimes we have to work on other platforms.)
