    Minimizing Keystrokes

    Help !!! I am writing an interactive application in 'C' in which I would like certain keys on the keyboard to transmit the selected key without the extra task of pressing the <ENTER> key.

    For example, I have <b> for backup, <n> for next, <u> for update, etc. But, each time the user presses, say, <b> for backup, the person also has to press the <ENTER> key.

    Is there a way to eliminate that extra keystroke ?

    Thank-you for any help !

    Elio

    Thantos,

    Thank-you for your almost instant reply. The answer is exactly what I was searching for.

    I am completely amazed at the kindness of strangers ! It's starting to erode my pessimism !

    May God do good things for you as you have done for me.

    Elio
