Comments

This routine will wait for a key to be pressed and return it. It will handle the 2nd and Alpha keys, and the values it returns reflect this distinction.

It transparently handles the screen capture and remote control link commands, as well as (on OS 1.15 and higher) the TI-Keyboard. Other silent link commands will cause it to exit from the current app so that data can be transferred. It also handles 2nd+Off, 2nd+Up, and 2nd+Down in the expected ways.
