hi guys, i've searched the web for this and thhis board but i cant find it. i need to know how to detect a keypress. for example if the right arrow/left arrow/up/down is pressed i need to know. im trying to make a pacman console dealie. this is obviously ssytem dependant so i have either windows with msvc 6.0 (that means no conio.h answers) or linux g++ (but i dont really want X window libraries) thx for responses.
