    Question Is there a function in C++ to read a single char?

    Its something very simple to do in assembly language, and I know there is a function to do just that in C++, but I just cant remember which one...


    Its not getchar(), nor it is cin.get().. And Im not talking about fgetc() or getc() either... Its something like getch() in conio.h... Anyway the question is: is there a function similar to getch()? I cant remember a way to read a single char like getch()...

    There is no standard way of getting unbuffered input in C/C++. You'll have to use operating system or compiler specific extensions like getch().
