Abstract

A method is described to ensure the operator of an interactive information handling system knows when the keystroke capacity has been reached during a keystroke programming session and also knows the last keystroke that was actually captured when the capacity is exceeded. Keystroke Programming (KP) allows the operator of an interactive information handling system to capture a sequence of keystrokes and later play them back instead of retyping them. In some KP arrangements, approximately 500 keystrokes can be captured in a keystroke program which is kept in system memory for immediate re-use. While in system memory, keystroke programs can be revised. They can also be saved on diskette/disk for later use. This function is an implementation of keystroke economy.
