Re: half-idea for #ifdef and key deifnition hell...

hey all,
well iv had another play with this and i tinhk it actually works :O
attached is a demo plugin that just tests the loop.. hopefully its all
simple enough to understand without thinking too much..
the idea of line 12-35 is that there would be a standard list of
buttons that would be global so the button list would really only ever
really need to be coded again is if some wierd combo u want isnt in
the main list..
as u can see. the code easily handles short/long presses of both
individual buttons and combo's. fancy stuff like quick double press
and short then long press would need to be done after the call.. but
that doesnt happen very often so thats no big deal..
also, ive only tested this in the sim so i dont know how responsive it
feels on the actual player.. (if the attachment doesnt work iv put it
at http://members.optusnet.com.au/jdgordy/button_test.c )
