Small ReadKey and screen-height routine

Does anyone know how to add a small ReadKey function to a program without going through the, remember TP/BP, pulling in the, admittedly more smartlink-friendly, VP CRT unit. All I need is something to detect the PgUp, PgDn and Esc keys to provide some "pageable" help screens, and (optionally) the screen-height, although I could just assume something sensible(?) for the latter.See More

I have just seen the news that Ning is in trouble, have laid off 40% of staff, and will end Free Ning sites (such as this one) in 2 months time, early July 2010.

The cheapest option for retaining this site is $20/year - and it will probably be fine. That option has a maximum of 150 members, and we today have 116 here at vpascal, without large growth prospects.

Do you know of an alternative that it's easy to port to? Do you care if disappears? Or would you like… Continue

For some reason, spammers think that by creating 100 fake accounts and having them all post ads for products that help against erectile dysfunction, they are somehow going to get through to customers.

The reality is that all they do is to destroy small communities like this one...

I still get the occasional email from someone that wants to download VP, and it's clearly not obvious how to do so.

Let me point you to the forum thread that has the latest VP build attached to it, and also points to a few mirrors: Virtual Pascal Download Forum Topic

Happy downloading!
