Forgive me if this question is a little vague.  Where can I find a reference work that tells me where certain pieces of information about the status of the system  (e.g. caps lock and num lock status, and characters on a plain ASCII screen) are located in memory?  I used wrinte in QuickBASIC occasionally in high school, and I'm starting to get back into it.  But I never did much PEEKing and POKEing, and I want to learn how.  Any help is appreciated.
