There's a quite complicated example here:


But it seems to just boil down to fiddling around with tty, and then
using select to read from sys.stdin to detect a keypress, and then
taking the appropriate action.

This will be different on Windows. If you really need this, it might
be worth looking for a library that will make key press detection
trivial. For example, this sort of thing is easy with pygame.
