    Why would you want to do that (unless you're making a keystroke logger to snoop out other people's passwords - in which case, you can pretty much forget finding help here)?

    I hope I had the skills to make a keystroke logger
    I want to write a programme in bash programming that counts how many times a particular button has been pressed and trigger an event if a particular button has been pressed x times.
