What it is
INEVENT is a DOS class that will allow you to gather mouse, scan-code,
and keyboard messages from a SINGLE (overloaded) function-name.
By calling GetMessage() from your program, you can make your DOS
C programs "event driven" (see inevent.c for the basic idea).
INEVENT will be featured in the Febuary 1993 version of BYTE in "Some
Assembly Required". I worte the class to demonstrate how C++ can be
used to "wrapper" message-gathering on several operating-system
platforms. I have versions of this for DOS, UNIX, OS/2 and Windows.
Only the DOS version is "freeware".
Written with Borland C++. Runs under all versions. Should work fine
with Microsoft 7.0, though I haven't use MSC for a long time.
All that I ask is that if you modify these files, let me know so that
I can share your goodies with the rest of the world (I'll give you the
credit in the next READ.ME file)! Also, although I have tested this
stuff and it runs without any flaws that I can see, I am obliged to
mention that you have to USE THIS AT YOUR OWN RISK!
