    Weird printw.

    After reading a tutorial about ncurses i was trying to make a pong like game, after a big struggle with finding something remotley alike kbhit() i found a "home made" version after implementing it i found something wierd.

    Code:
    for( ;; )
    {
       loop_count++;
     
       if (kbhit())
         {
              key = getch();
    
              switch(key)
                 {             
                     case up:
                         do stuff
                           ...
                  }
          }
    printw("%d", loop_count);
    }
    this code show the variable loop_count After you press any keys but if you replace it with printf("%d", loop_count);
    it work like a charm... why is this and is there a way around it? since printf doesnt seem to work very well with ncurses i would very much like to replace it.

    Give us a chance pal (ie more than a few hours)
    When all else fails, read the instructions.
    If you're posting code, use code tags: [code] /* insert code here */ [/code]

    Is your prntf() the last statement in your code? if yes, insert a redundant getch() just before endwin().
