Thanks a lot,

thats an easy "workaround"

Idea: there is alittle app called Platypus. It should be possible to  
writte alittle scriptstarter and include the command-line starting  
So doubleclickers should still be able to use KBHIT

I'll try this later..

I like writing e-mails with funny sounds too ;-)

especially the smiley makes a nice sound ;-)
