FUNCTION

	This function returns the currently pressed non-qualifier key and
all pressed qualifiers.

multitasking model. The values returned by this function are
not modified by which window/screen currently has input focus.

RESULT

order word. If no key is pressed this word will be FF. The
upper order word contains the qualifiers which can be found
within the long word as follows:

LLKB_RSHIFT Rigt Shift
LLKB_CAPSLOCK Caps Lock
LLKB_CONTROL Control
LLKB_LALT Left Alt
LLKB_RALT Right Alt
