sends the control character to the keyboard buffer. Putting a "$"
in front sends the keyboard value to the buffer.
There are a few key words that stuff characters into the buffer.

Alt-A..Alt-Z, Alt-1..Alt-0, CR, ESC, TAB, LF, FF

and a carridge return.

This stuffs AltX, F1, "Free", and a carridge return
in the keyboard buffer. It sets Num Lock to On and sets the
