Help me use HID Keyboard Demo

I purchased a Futurlec AT89c5131 USB Development board to teach myself about USB comms. I have been able to send some example programs via the FLIP software from Atmel and run them on my Development board.

One of the examples is a HID Keyboard Demo, known as c5131-usb-kbd-stand-alone-1_0_2. It looks like what I want to learn but I am a little confused on how to use this program.

My intentions down the track is to be able to press a key on my pc keyboard and send data thru the USB port to my Development board and turn on a LED. I thought that the HID Keyboard Demo code might be a good example to teach me how to do this.

I can load the HID Keyboard Demo program into my development board but I am not sure what to do with it from then on as there are no instructions. Has anybody used or tried this program who could give me some hints on how to use it? Any help is appreciated..thanks

The example code is attached.

I have experience in sending data to the parallel port usind Borland C++ Builder, Delphi and Turbo C but not to the USB port.
