Okay. I am extremely new to C and am teaching myself ( with the help of all of you here ). I will do some research about scanf so that I better understand what you mean and I will try to read up on getchar also.
A little at a time. I'll get there.
I have seen many people seem to suggest staying away from scanf and even read Elysia's FAQ devoted to it. I must admit it still isn't clear to me, but as I slowly gain more technical knowledge of the language I am sure it will all make sense. Is scanf pretty much obsolete? If not, then where is it appropriate?
