    Question Char input

    How can I get a charactor from the commandline without waiting for a carriage return. gets/getchar/cin/scanf, takes in a char, but the user has to hit return before it will continue. I want to take in chars one by one, with no return. Any ideas?
    Thanks

    Arrow I have the answer

    I guarantee this will work for you.

    #include <conio.h>

    void main()
    {
    getch();
    }



    This waits for any keypress, and does not require a Carriage Return after the input.

    Any problems, mail me.

    to actually capture the character type "variable = getch()"

    eg

    char c;
    c=getch();

    puts the character the user pressed into 'c'
