How do I force a key to enter just one character when being pressed?

Thanks Graig but the app will be mostly used on Windows (but developed
on a Mac).
@ Thierry: RawKeyDown will will work if you specify a certain key.

local pressed
on arrowKey theKey

     if (theKey = "Right") and (not pressed) then
          put true into pressed
     end if

on rawKeyUp keycode
   if keycode = 65361 then put false into pressed
end rawKeyUp

Can I change this? And how do I do that?
