Programmatic access to key history?
Posted 24 June 2012 - 05:10 PM
At a couple of occasions, I've found myself needing to know the last 2-3 keys, and have had to come up with complicated workarounds to achieve what I wanted (and such workarounds aren't even going to be possible every time).
Can AHK_L provide such a feature in some future release?

And I would too like to see this feature.

Logging keys to a file via keyhistory command is the same as "direct access" to key history.
// Logging keys to a file is disabled in the main version in an effort to prevent
// AutoHotkey from being branded as a key logger or trojan by various security firms and
// security software. Uncomment this line to re-enabled logging of keys to a file:

In any case, making a key-logger shouldn't be hard without this feature:
1) Make ~ (go through) hotkeys for all keys.
2) Log to a file on each hotkey invocation.

I always had the issue that while one key was messing with the file, the other keys were missed, and I only got around 2/3 of the keys while I was typing quickly.

Missing keys is usually solved with SetBatchLines -1, but I suppose you have that already.
