How can I make key repeat (like in Notepad)? I need only one key at once (no simultaneous key presses, except SHIFT of course to detect capital letters), standard latin charset only (ASCII + cursors + delete + backspace), no UTF8 or other extravagances.


If possible, I would love these additional features (but can live without them):
- it does not interfere with standard key press (can use key repeat version for edit fields and standard behaving SDL keys for movin a ship for example)
- automatic conversion of small letters to capitals letters if any SHIFT or CAPS LOCK pressed
- national characters handling (only latin like 8 bit charsets)
Again, these are extras, only if possible, above all I need a functional basic version as desribed in the first sentence.

You can use SDL_EnableKeyRepeat() to enable key repeat and SDL_EnableUNICODE() to get character codes that correspond to key events.
