    Only with OS specific functions, not the standard library.

    That probably requires a tad more detail, such as:
    1. What OS?
    2. What do you mean "do" keydown and keyup events?
    3. Do you mean to see the keydown/up events, or to send them to some other application, or something else?

    Giving that may not be sufficient to answer the question, but it will be a starting point.

    Compilers can produce warnings - make the compiler programmers happy: Use them!

    What OS?

    Whilst I don't mind increasing my post count by ten with answering one question, I do think it would be better for YOU to answer OUR questions first, rather than just asking the same question again without further information. Preferrably all three of the ones I asked in one go, as it's likely that you will not get a very good answer without that.

    Yeah dude, and make it clear you mean "key down"/"key up" and not just a "key pressed". The later is easy enough but I image the former could be quite hard.
    C programming resources:
    GNU C Function and Macro Index -- glibc reference manual
    The C Book -- nice online learner guide
    Current ISO draft standard
    CCAN -- new CPAN like open source library repository
    3 (different) GNU debugger tutorials: #1 -- #2 -- #3
    cpwiki -- our wiki on sourceforge
