Purpose
----------------------


This program has been developed as a simple command line utility to
control keyboard repeat rate and the delay before the keyboard switches to
auto repeat mode.

KeySpeed is ideal for use in an AUTOEXEC.BAT file to set to the keyboard
speed on every system boot-up. If you prefer not to have the normal KeySpeed
message appear after every execution in your AUTOEXEC, just add the "> NUL"
after the call to KeySpeed.

Example : "KS /Q > NUL" - Set the keyboard speed to maximum without
displaying any message.

I use this utility all the time to set my keyboard rate to maximum (30
character per second). It is especially useful when editing a document with a
word processor to quickly fly through the text.

Note To Norton Utilities Owners ( v4.5 or later):

This program serves the same purpose as NCC /FASTKEY; however, because it is
specialized, KeySpeed is incredibly small and fast and can be used as a
substitute for NCC /FASTKEY.



-----------------------
Command-Line Use
-----------------------

Usage:
KS Typematic Delay OR
KS /Q

Typematic = The rate (in cps 0-30) of the keyboard
during auto repeat. In other words, how fast the characters
appear after you hold down the key.

Delay = The delay (in levels 0-3) before the
keyboard switches to the auto repeat mode.
In other words, how long you have to wait after you hold
down the key before characters start flying--I mean
repeating across the screen.

Level 0 = 250ms Delay
1 = 500ms Delay
2 = 750ms Delay
3 = 1s Delay

/Q = The use of this switch sets the typematic
rate to 30cps and the delay before auto repeat to 250ms.

Passing no Command-Line arguments displays a help screen similar to
the usage description directly above.

Sample Runs :

"KS 28 0" = Sets the typematic rate to 28cps and the delay to 250ms.
"KS /Q" = Sets the typematic rate to 30cps and the delay to 250ms.
"KS 20 3" = Sets the typematic rate to 20cps and the delay to 1000ms or 1s.
"KS 10 2" = Sets the typematic rate to 10cps and the delay to 750ms.
"KS" = Displays the help screen.
