Scan a keyboard, keypad, or other HID device with buttons, and return a vector
of logical values indicating the state of each key.
By default the first keyboard device (the one with the lowest device number) is
scanned. If no keyboard is found, the first keypad device is scanned, followed
by other devices, e.g., mice. Optionally, the 'deviceNumber' of any keyboard or
HID device may be specified.
As checking all potentially 256 keys on a HID device is a time consuming
process, which can easily take up to 1 msec on modern hardware, you can restrict
the scan to a subset of the 256 keys by providing the optional 'scanList'
parameter: 'scanList' must be a vector of 256 doubles, where the i'th element
corresponds to the i'th key and a zero value means: Ignore this key during scan,
whereas a positive non-zero value means: Scan this key.
