    conio.h not working in *nix

    hi buddies I am new to C and having some severe heaches ....
    i need ur help .... please ... please ...

    I wrote a program in and include the conio.h it runs well in windows but the problem is that @ school we use only Debian and this library is not available. I need to use conio.h because I am using getch function to check which option the user choose. The program asks the questions and gives 4 choices namely A B C and D of which only one is correct. I need emmediate response for the user...

    any body please ...
    thanks

    I guess you'd better stop using a non-ANSI function then, if you expect portablility. It's fine, learn2FAQ.

    Hope is the first step on the road to disappointment.

    If you're using getch() or something, which is likely, see this FAQ: http://faq.cprogramming.com/cgi-bin/...&id=1043284392
