    This isn't your own personal help board... NO one is going to email you. This board has a notify-by-email feature... USE it.

    As for the question, do you mean input? Like, typing out a message and entering it in with the 'a' key?

    Code:
    char pszBuffer[256];
    cin.getline(pszBuffer, 255, 'a');
    That code would read a line of characters from the user; although instead of ending and returning with the enter key, the 'a' key now ends the input procedure.
