    Recognizing ALT or Ctrl + letter


    I am programming in ncurses, but though I would ask here instead of the linux board.

    I would like to recoognize the sequence of Alt or Ctrl plus a specific letter to represent a command.

    I couldnt find anything like this on an ASCII table, is it possible?

    If so how?

    Check you man page for getch()
    When all else fails, read the instructions.
