    kbhit() and getch() Equivalent..

    I'm trying to create a control function for my program that can simulate the kbhit() and getch() combination, it should be using standard C and windows API without using any external libraries. Can anyone give me suggestions how to do this?

    I tried using GetAsyncKeyState() and ReadConsoleInput() but it doesn't work like exactly as I want them.

    Because it is windows specific - It should be in Windows forum

    You should post your code, explain what it does and how it is different from what you expect
