Re: Key board interface
I assume it's a 6 by 7 unencoded keypad? The usual way is to attach the columns
to one port and the rows to another port. You set one port to output all ones
except the one you are interested in. You read the other port. The bit with the
0 tells you which switch was being pushed (if any).
