..

And Is their any other soln (Apart form ofcourse THE NCURSES)

Well I would just use ncurses, but you could possibly use below? Chances are you prolly don't need either unless you're making a crappy console game, or a password program.

#include <stdio.h>
#include <termios.h>
#include <unistd.h>
#include <sys/types.h>
#include <sys/time.h>

void changemode ( int );
int  kbhit ( void );

int main ( void )
{
   int ch;
   changemode ( 1 );
   while ( !kbhit() )
   {
      putchar ( '.' );
   }

   ch = getchar();

   printf ( "\nGot %c\n", ch );

   changemode ( 0 );
   return 0;
}

void changemode ( int dir )
{
   static struct termios oldt, newt;

   if ( dir == 1 )
   {
      tcgetattr ( STDIN_FILENO, &oldt );
      newt = oldt;
      newt.c_lflag &= ~ ( ICANON | ECHO );
      tcsetattr ( STDIN_FILENO, TCSANOW, &newt );
   }
   else
      tcsetattr ( STDIN_FILENO, TCSANOW, &oldt );
}

int kbhit ( void )
{
   struct timeval tv;
   fd_set rdfs;

   tv.tv_sec = 0;
   tv.tv_usec = 0;

   FD_ZERO ( &rdfs );
   FD_SET ( STDIN_FILENO, &rdfs );

   select ( STDIN_FILENO + 1, &rdfs, NULL, NULL, &tv );
   return FD_ISSET ( STDIN_FILENO, &rdfs );

}

Do you want your diaper changing as well?

WTF do you think the links in my post were all about - how to make cheese on toast using small theatre nuclear devices?

If you knew the reply was going to be ncurses, then why did you
a) bother to ask in the first place
b) not bother to do even a small amount of research for yourself.

If neither of these things crossed your mind, then forget about becoming a programmer.

Mr CoolDude (i am thwee),

ajaxjinx, please don't take it personal. I am quite sure that Iamthwee nor Salem were trying to offend you at all. They are good guys that will help you, if you don't take it personal.

Sometimes we say the first things that come to our minds thinking not much of it, and without thinking how the recipient of our comments are going to take it.

But you are welcome here, and no one is trying to offend you.

Be happy!.

ajaxjinx, you're being very foolish by saying such a thing. You never deserve an answer, you earn it by showing that you are willing to work to find the answer, and that means researching when someone gives a recommendation, reading the links that they give you, etc.. By giving rude remarks by demanding help from people who could potentially help you, you waste their time, and you risk losing valuable help.

By the way, read this. Typing 2 extra keystrokes to say "you" instead of a certain instant messaging abbreviation is actually quite a good idea.

Seems like I have been misunderstood here... Apologies for that..

I am really not trying to offend anyone, but being a newbie to this forum, the kind of know-it-all attitude, on part of some members is a BIG turn off.


But ya..

Thanks anyways.
