DESCRIPTION

This is a structure that is used to hold a "snapshot" of a keyboard's state at a particular instant. It contains the following publically readable fields:
display - points to the display that had keyboard focus at the time the state was saved. If no display was focused, this points to NULL.
You cannot read the state of keys directly. Use the function al_key_down(3alleg5).
