11 The keyboard layout in Frodo closely resembles that of a real C64. The
12 individual rows of the keyboard are mapped as follows (american keyboard):

21 In addition, the following keys are used:
22
23 <PRE>
24 Esc - RUN/STOP
25 Backspace - INS/DEL
26 Return - RETURN
27 Enter - RETURN
28 Shift keys - SHIFT
29 Caps lock - SHIFT LOCK

47 F10 - Quit Frodo
48 F11 - RESTORE
49 F12 - C64 Reset

82 Special keys under RISC OS:
83
84 <PRE>
85 F5 - Toggle sound emulation mode
86 F6 - Enter SAM
87 F7 - RESTORE
88 F8 - Reset
89 Copy - Toggle pause
90 PageUp - Increase SkipFrames
91 PageDown - Decrease SkipFrames
92 num/ - Toggle 1541 emulation mode
93 num* - Toggle speed limiter
94 num+/- - +/-
95 Alt - CBM
96 ScrollLock - On: force single tasking, else multitasking

99 Apart from that the function keys are mapped differently under RISC OS. (F1,F2,F3,F4) maps
100 to the C64's (F1,F3,F5,F7), you get (F2,F4,F6,F8) by pressing shift like on a real C64.<P>
101
102 So the famous key combination RUN/STOP-RESTORE must be typed as Esc-F11 (Esc-F9 under AmigaOS).
103 But you don't have to thrash the F11 key the same way as the RESTORE key on
104 the original C64. <TT>:-)</TT><P>
105
106 The cursor (arrow) keys work as expected. I.e. "cursor up" corresponds to
107 "Shift-cursor down" on the C64. The same applies to the function keys F2,
108 F4, F6 and F8.
109
110 The numerical keypad emulates a joystick in port 1 or 2, depending on the
111 state of the Num Lock (Num Lock off: port 2, Num Lock on: port 1):<P>

127 Keyboard joysticks are handled differently under RISC OS:
128
129 <UL>
130 <LI>NumLock on: only joystick 1 active, mapped to port 2. NumLock off: both joysticks active, 1 mapped to port 1, 2 mapped to port 2.
131 <LI>Joystick keys can be defined freely. Defaults are: joystick 1: (1 2 3 . enter) on the numerical keypad, joystick 2: (z x f c g).
132 </UL><P>
133
134 The '+' and '-' keys on the numerical keypad increase and decrease the
135 "Draw every n-th frame" setting on the fly. The '*' on the numerical keypad
136 toggles the "Limit Speed to 100%" option.
