The C++ docs is designed to be supplemented by the C documentation
that's also available[1] since gtkmm is wrapper around gtk+/gdk.
Structures like GdkEventKey[2] are fully described in the C
documentation of gdk[3].


It is true that there is no section in the online book about handling
key presses but maybe it's because it shouldn't be very complicated.

As far as detecting special keys like SHIFT, etc.  This is definitely
possible by using the Gtk::Widget::signal_key_press_event() signal.
