SUMMARY: C program..

Date: Thu Dec 28 2000 - 08:49:36 CST

Hi Gurus,
Thanks a lot to Mike DeMarco who helped me to solve the problem. He gave a
sample program which solved my query..
The syntax for getch is int getch(void). Also we need to call initscr() that
does a curses initialization and at the end, you need to call endwin so that
the terminal will be usable.

I also got replies from Hendrik Visage,Corinne Lenta. Thanks a lot to all
who has helped me to solve the query.

I am enclosing the code which mike has given.
#include <stdio.h>
#include <stdlib.h>
#include <signal.h>
#include <curses.h>

    int x;
    printf( "You typed %d\n", x );

gcc -o junk junk.c -lcurses -ltermlib -lm -lc

My Original Query was:
