    Default Keyboard entry without <Return> ??

    Anybody know a way for AutoLisp to take the FIRST character of keyboard entry and run with it, instead of having to hit <Return> all the time? I have some routines that assign single keystrokes to variables, and doing away with the dreaded carriage returns would cut the keyboarding in half...

    I see! So I can just bring the character back from ASCII-land, and I'm set... Thank you!
