Vassal key mapping?

Hi folks,

I am searching for a reference on key mappings in the modules - i.e. how is a keypress referenced in the XML (is it XML?) source of a module itself? I believe they could be numbers, but whether that is standard ASCII (say SPACE is 32 in decimal) or something else, I do not know…

I would need to check for key duplicates in an existing mod to avoid assigning the same key combination to two different things…

The only reference for the buildFile is the code itself.

This will be different for VASSAL 4. I don’t expect there to ever be
documentation for the V3 buildFile.
