I am having trouble with receiving input from the user in my programs. I have a situation where the user has to input whether or not they are ready to continue, and when it gets to there, it immediately follows on as if they said yes. When i went to debug it, i got my program to print out the variable which contained the input, and i found it was 10. If i'm not mistaken, 10 is the numeric value of the newline character (\n). I was wondering if there is anyway i can bypass my program spitting 10 when there is a scanf() or a getc() / getchar() function.
