    Question Time for another Beginner Q: equivalent to C's getc in C++

    Hi!

    In C++ I would like to scan the keyboard if a key is pressed without having to press the ENTER-key. This was possible in C using "c=getc()" which didn't wait for the ENTER-key, but I cannot find anything similar in C++.

    Can somebody help me with this?

    Thanks
    Johan

    getch() was in C as well.

    sorry, I meant c=getch...:-) and if I remember correctly "getche" echoed the input out to the screen.
