getchar() is close, but not exactly equivalent. Reading keyboard
*immediately* (without waiting for carriage return) is rather tricky on

Indeed it is... I wrote this routine some time ago (works on Linux, not sure about FreeBSD). It uses "termios" routines to put stdin (temporarily) in "raw" mode:

Thanks. It works on FreeBSD as well :-)

When compiling with g++, it warns me that <iostream.h> is deprecated, but when using <iostream> I get an error that cout is undefined. Also, there is no man for cout. Should I use something else in stead of cout?

Best regards
