Shift Key Handling

Adis provides a number of routines to enable an applicaton to make use of the shift key capabilities of a keyboard.

Most UNIX terminals cannot detect when the Alt or Ctrl keys are pressed unless they are pressed in conjunction with another valid key. You should, therefore, avoid using these keys by themselves in portable applications. Alternatively, the key sequences /a and /c can be used to simulate the use of Alt and Ctrl keys.
