Maybe TI-Planet guys can ask for direct input?

In fact, they did so a year ago...

Direct input in what sense ?

I think that "direct input" for the Nspire means what it means in basically all other TI graphing calculators (and undoubtedly in some graphing calculators for other manufacturers): some form of direct getKey ;)

Double bonus points for providing both a slow getKey and a fast getKey. On the TI-68k, the former would be represented by ngetchx() or GKeyIn(NULL, 0), which also takes care of other things, while the latter would be represented by the rather fast OSdequeue(kbd_queue()).

Hmm, yeah. Some form of the Axe getkey would be cool :D And is pretty much possible I guess. (Axe has getkey(keycode) just like basic but 120 times faster).
Also no key delay function would be cool.

well, the only thing I find sad is that they made it event based.. loop based is much more flexible (imo) than event based, but i guess that's completely personal.

and about that getkey, it would be nice, but the way it is made now (with on.charIn()) it would conflict.. so that won't come i think

@Lionel, aeTIos
Okay, I see your point there. Indeed, it would be nice to have some other key input stuff. For example, you can not catch many ctrl-[a-z] keys. A bit annoying, if you want to assign hotkey's to certain things.

Nick, in a sense you can run non event based stuff on a TI-Nspire. I've developed a small program to do that, and it works pretty good. Just did not have much time to work on it.
