I want to be able to interpret an alt code from the keyboard using
allegro.  I have tried doing it the way it says in the allegro.txt and
it doesn't work.

EX:

int ch, int key;

key = KEY_F;
ch = readkey();
if (ch == (key << 8)) do_whatever();
else didnt_work();

It doesn't seem to recognize the keys.  I have tried a whole bunch of
different combinations and no luck.

Any help?
