    Intercept Keystroke

    I am writing a small konsole game ( tic tac toe, what else ) and want to get a number from the user. Now i dont want that the user has to hit enter. I hope that is enough that too understand me.

    With using Microsoft's Visual C++ IDE it has a function in conio.h
    int _getche();
    That fuction will get the character without the need for the enter key. If you're using a different compiler you may have this function but in a different header file.
    While you're breakin' down my back n'
    I been rackin' out my brain
    It don't matter how we make it
    'Cause it always ends the same
    You can push it for more mileage
    But your flaps r' wearin' thin
    And I could sleep on it 'til mornin'
    But this nightmare never ends
    Don't forget to call my lawyers
    With ridiculous demands
    An you can take the pity so far
    But it's more than I can stand
    'Cause this couchtrip's gettin' older
    Tell me how long has it been
    'Cause 5 years is forever
    An you haven't grown up yet
