    Code:
    #include <iostream.h>
    
    int main(void)
    {
      char C;
    
      cout << "Please enter char: ";
      cin >> C;
    
      cout << "\n" << C;
    
      cin.get() //hold screen
    
      return 0;
    }

    Using standard functions, you cannot.

    However, if your compiler has conio.h you could use getch() or one of its equivalents.
