    Simple "Do you want to continue"

    What's the best way to do a "Do you want to continue"?

    I tried the "Do you want to continue? y/n", every time an error comes up with something to do with the characters.

    Please help

    There are some tips on how to pause a program in the board FAQ, if nothing there suggests a solution to your, (somewhat cryptic), problem, post your code.

    There are two functions you could use that are under the
    #<ctype.h> & <conio.h> header files

    main90
    {
    char ch;

    printf("\n Do you want to continue >");
    ch = getch(ch);
    ch=toupper(ch);

    if(ch == 'Y')
    {
    /*do some coding*/
    }
    else
    exti(1); /*this is in the stdlib.h*/

    Code:
    
    char Key='y';
    while(Key=='y')
    {
    
      ...
    
      printf("Do you want to continue? y/n);
      scanf(&Key); //Not sure about the exact syntax :)
    }

    I know, scanf() is a little bit rusty for me . I see that I forgot a " too, but I'm pretty sure that the general structure works...

            WORKING-STORAGE SECTION.
            77  DO-YOU-WANT-TO-CONTINUE    PIC X VALUE "Y".

    Always interesting to see other languages, (even COBOL), but hardly applicable to the C board.
