module for terminal key input using libtermkey with AnyEvent


AnyEvent::TermKey implements an asynchronous perl wrapper around the libtermkey library, which provides an abstract way to read keypress events in terminal-based programs. It yields structures that describe keys, rather than simply returning raw bytes as read from the TTY device.

It internally uses an instance of Term::TermKey to access the underlying C library. For details on general operation, including the representation of keypress events as objects, see the documentation on that class.

Proxy methods exist for normal accessors of Term::TermKey, and the usual behaviour of the getkey or other methods is instead replaced by the on_key event.
