For example, B501021F inserts an "A" on a 104 key, U.S. style
keyboard. B5 = the command, 01 = number of keys pressed (without

If there are three keystrokes, the syntax would change from B5xxssnn
for one keystroke to B5xxssnnssnnssnn. An example that would insert
"abc" is as follows: B503001F00320030F833.
Note: Key modifiers can be added together when needed. Example:
Control Left+Shift Left = 11.
Move the cursor forward a number of characters
F5 Move the cursor ahead "nn" characters from current cursor position.

of characters the cursor should be moved ahead.
Move the cursor backward a number of characters
F6 Move the cursor back "nn" characters from current cursor position.
Syntax = F6nn where nn is the numeric value (00-99) for the number
of characters the cursor should be moved back.
