getch() in Python

Hi!

Is there a getch()-like function in Python that is OS independent?
I understand that msvcrt.getch() is available only under Windows.

thanks, Boti

Hi, I have the following problem: I use "getch" to monitor keypresses and the I use "cin" to input a string. When I type in 'y', the 'y' character appears, so I need to hit backspace before typing the string. c = getch(); cin >> str;

getch() function is not a standard C/C++ function. Thought gcc provieds ncurses.h and a getch() function is realized, I still want to know how to realize a getch() function in standard c or c++.

Howdy, What would be the equivalent of getch() using iostream? My current code is: cout << "\nPress <Enter> to continue..."; getch(); but <conio.h> is not kosher for the C++ class.

Is there any way to make cin behave like getch()? Specifically, getch() returns immediately after a key is pressed and the cin family of input methods seem to block until a new line is encountered. I need some help.

My doubt is on the working of getch() function based on the following observations 1) if the pressed key has an ascii code,only that can be read using a single call to getch() 2) if the key has not an ascii code then the first call to getch() returns a zero and ,if we made a second call, it will return the scan code with out an additional key press. Some one please help me to understand getch()

In the following code something strange happens ! If I keep pressed any of ALT+Arrow, keys, they are extracted two times from buffer then getch seems to stop; if I release and press again ALT+arrow nothing changes: the only way to exit from this condition is press another key a single time. What seems to happen is that kbhit say some keys are present in buffer but for getch don't see any data and waits for a key. Why this happen ? If I...

Hi there, I am using a POSIX-compliant system, Cygwin on Windows. I need the features of conio.h's getch() and clrscr(), but I can't compile programs with #include <conio.h(since conio.h is NOT POSIX). I tried to implement myself clrscr() with system("cls"), but the program compiles ok, but during the running it will show: sh: cls: command not found

Hello folks, I am unable to find appropriate documentation on the type promotion of bit-fields when using the generalised comparison operator "<=>". The problem is that using the GNU compilers, it seems that the internal comparison operator "<=>" tries to promote arguments from unsigned to signed. This is as boiled down as I can make it. Here is my compilation command: g++-12 -std=c++20 -Wnarrowing bit_field.cpp Here is the code in...
