Class KeyNames


public class KeyNames extends Object
Translate key codes (from KeyInput) to descriptive names. This class has only static methods, yet it can be instantiated. Here's why: It used to be that there was no static getName() method, so the only way to get names was to instantiate a KeyNames. As a consequence, we have applications and libraries that rely on being able to instantiate this class.
