    I made this simple program to see what code correspond to every key you press on your keyboard using Turbo C++ 3.0

    void main (void)
    {
    char c;

    printf ("Press a key ");
    c = getch ();

    if (c == 0) c = getch ();

    printf ("\n the code for the key you pressed is %.0f ", (float)c);
    fflush (stdin);
    }

    Now you know the code, so you can use

    if (c == 72) then ......

    just put thing in between code blocks. You cant tab though so just mash space 4 times:

    Code:
    int main () 
    { 
        char c; 
    
        printf ("Press a key "); 
        c = getch (); 
    
        if (c == 0) c = getch (); 
    
       printf ("\n the code for the key you pressed is %.0f ", (float)c); 
       fflush (stdin); 
    }
    What is C++?
