    Reading and processing input from keyboard

    Hi,

    I have some questions about how to work with input from the keyboard. This code can read characters from the keyboard and print them:

    Code:
    #include <stdio.h>
    
    main()
    {
    	int c;
    
    	c = getchar();
    
    	while(c != EOF)
    		{
    		putchar(c);
    		c = getchar();
    		}
    
    	return 0;
    }
    However, how can I make so that the input isn't displayed to the screen and is also limited to one character each time (so that you don't have to press RETURN) ? Basically what I want is to make a switch statement based on a few characters read from the keyboard.

    Thanks in advance.
