    Well, the toupper converts the text entered to uppercase letters. Conio.h is a header file that contains the getch command. It contains more then that but I'm not sure about the other commands.

    This information comes from my compiler, you should try with the "help" from yours.

    conio.h contains the next functions:

    cgets clreol clrscr cprintf
    cputs cscanf delline getch
    getche getpass gettext gettextinfo
    gotoxy highvideo insline inp
    inport inportb inpw kbhit
    lowvideo movetext normvideo outp
    outport outportb outpw putch
    puttext _setcursortype textattr textbackground
    textcolor textmode ungetch wherex
    wherey window
    /* _toupper example */

    #include <string.h> #include <stdio.h> #include <ctype.h>

    int main(void) {
    int length, i;
    char *string = "this is a string.";

    length = strlen(string);
    for (i = 0; i < length; i++) {
    if ((string[i] >= 'a') && (string[i] <= 'z')){
    string[i] = _toupper(string[i]);
    return 0;
