    What library is kbhit() in?

    Hi guys, just a quick question: What library is kbhit() in? I get a compiler error that it is not a recognized function. I have compiled with G++ on a Unix comp, and Dev C++ on a Windows compe.

    Thanks again!

    conio.h but it is not standard so you might get portability problems if you want to port it.

    That's weird, because I definitly included conio.h, and I got an error regarding implicit declaration....any thoughts?

    Thanks

    Read his post. It isnt standard so conio's functions are pretty vague. You might or you might not have them.
    Dev-C++ doesnt have it even though it has conio. Though you should be including conio.c in Dev...

    in MSVC its _kbhit() not kbhit() in codewarrior its __kbhit()!
    and in all it is in conio.h.

    im not sure in devC read the header and see if its there!

    Hey I skimmed through conio.h in Dev C++.
    I found something named _conio_kbhit(). That might be the thing...
    Anyways why does DevC have so many conios?`
    conio.c
    conio.h
    conio_mingw.h

    howdy,
    conio.h and kbhit() are not defined in gcc, as near as i can tell there exists a similar comand in curses,h or ncurses.h. but i have never used it nor do i know the specifics.

    M.R.
    I don't like you very much. Please post a lot less.

    *and then*
    No, I know you were joking. My point still stands.
