Double Tap Detection without Timers

This is an example to show one method of detecting a double tap of a movement key without using a timer. --Eyana Yohkoh 19:09, 27 August 2007 (PDT)

// This script is an example of a way to detect a double tap on movement
// keys to trigger a function.
// There are multiple ways to detect a double tap, and this method quite
// possibly is not the best, but this certainly works.

//
