pyHook 1.5.1

pyHook is was designed in the Python programming language in order to be a wrapper for global input hooks in Windows. More specifically, the application wraps the Windows SetWindowsHookEx API function using low-level keyboard (WH_KEYBOARD_LL) and mouse (WH_MOUSE_LL) hooks. pyHook is able to provide callbacks for global mouse and keyboard events in Windows. Python applications register can event handlers for user input events such as left mouse down, left mouse up, key down, etc. and set the keyboard and/or mouse hook. The underlying C library reports information like the time of the event, the name of the window in which the event occurred, the value of the event, any keyboard modifiers, etc. Events can be logged and/or filtered.
