Reading a USB Keyboard


#1

I am needing to plug in a USB PC keyboard & put up on the LCD screen what is being typed (just normal characters)…Are there any samples for a Cobra board? I can see some posts for emulating a virtual keyboard, but I am using a REAL keyboard.

Did you see this?

Use it similar to the example in that wiki post.

Thanks, the link does not show how to actually read a keyboard, or how to set it up, but maybe this is enough of a seed.
Can it be polled?
