    In a calendar program I am supposed to be able to move ahead and move back months by using the right and left arrow keys and exit the program by using ESC (which I know is '27'), what are the arrow keys?

    i've used this code to get some ASCII values but I don't think it gives me the correct ones for the arrows because they are both the same when I do it.
    #include <stdio.h>
    #include <conio.h>
    #define ESC 27
    int main (void)
    	unsigned char ch;
    	printf("press a key to test\n");
    	while (ch != ESC)
    		ch = getch();	
    		if (ch == 0 || ch == 225)
    			printf("%d\n", ch);
    			ch = getch();
    		printf("%c\t%d\t\n", ch, ch);
    	return 0;
    either telling the codes for the keys or help with the code would be appreciated...
