It probably simpler than anything else. It does not need anything else
then Linux kernel to handle keys. It parses key codes internally and
execute command defined in configuration file. It handles also remote
control (those presented as keyboard event devices), so you can
execute some commands with RC. It was also reported to work with...
bar code scanner :-)
