With the key <RETURN> or are finished data inputs by the homecomputers like the C64/128 or VIC-20.

The controlling of the key programs isn't easy, because the function of the key is always there! The following methods show ways for controlling the key :in
With the BASIC command GET[edit | edit source]
By using the ASCII code 13 for <RETURN> with CHR$(13):
10 PRINT "Please, push any..." 20 PRINT "...key"; 30 GET A$ : IF A$="" THEN 30 40 IF A$ = CHR$(13) THEN PRINT ":<RETURN> - The program ends here !" : END 50 PRINT ":"A$ : GOTO 20
The program ends with pushing the key. Each key (without the key ) can be pushed.
