    Exclamation non-blocking keyboard input

    I am looking for a function like getch(), where you don't have to press enter after entering a character, but will continure even if there is no input given.

    Or, is there a way to make my program continure without waiting for a character if nothing is pressed?

    If you know enough to call it "non-blocking keyboard input", then you should know enough to Google what you're looking for.

    Let me google that for you

    I found one, kbhit(), but my keyboard input doesn't work now. I was using int ch=getch(); before, and I replaced getch() with kbhit(), and now it doesn't work.
    Is there another function, the only answers I have found have been overly confusing or don't seem to talk about the same thing.

    You should have discovered, in your extensive googling, that it is entirely OS/compiler specific, and then consulted your compiler's documentation and/or library functions available for said compiler.
