    a lil help "for the lamer"

    Okay in the K&R book the question states that i should write a programm called entabs that replases tabs with a certain number of spaces ...
    So this is my problem i tried this

    Code:
    while ( (c = getchar()) != EOF )
              if ( c == '\t' )
                 printf("k");
    since getchar is a bufferen function ...It only work if i press enter ...but i want that when the person presses tab it should print k ...The above code is just for ilustration purpose ...And i dont wanna use unbuffered getche() function because it is not ANSI ...What should i do is there a way to write my own function that does it for me ..if possible how ???

    Try this :

    Code:
    #include <conio.h>
    #include <stdio.h>
    
    int main()
    {
        char c;
        while (c != '1' ) //program terminates uppon pressing 1
        {
            if ( c == '\t' )
            {
                printf("k");
            }
        c = getch();
        }
        return 0;
    }
    The program end when you press "1"

    I have already answered you in your other thread: There is no UNBUFFERED ANSI function for reading input.

    Hope is the first step on the road to disappointment.
