Here's a good one on HUT: http://www.hut.fi/~then/mytexts/mouse.html I also found an AT/PS2 keyboard text: http://www.arne.si/~mauricio/Kbdfaq.htm Richard -- Richard Atkinson Software Engineer Tenison Technology EDA Ltd http://www.tenisontech.com/ - This message was sent through the cbm-hackers mailing list.
