May 27, 2010  The functions gotoxy and clrscr are not working. How can i use those functions in my compiler? May 27 '10 # 1. Hi, I'm trying to write a while loop that is able to recognise and act on keyboard presses without pausing to wait for an input (unlike getchar). At the moment I'm just trying to detect any keypress and exit the loop by changing an integer, printing out the recorded keypress on the way out.

Gets a character from the console without echo.

I am using quincy 2005 compiler. The functions gotoxy and clrscr are not working. How can i use those functions in my compiler. Jul 19, 2017  DevCpp IDE for C/C has gcc/g compiler version which do not have conio.h header file. ‘conio.h' is included in MSDOS compilers but not in gcc/g. Hence, you cannot include conio.h in DevC. But still there are certain substitute which may be.


This API cannot be used in applications that execute in the Windows Runtime. For more information, see CRT functions not supported in Universal Windows Platform apps.


Return Value

Returns the character read. There is no error return.


The _getch and _getwch functions read a single character from the console without echoing the character. None of these functions can be used to read CTRL+C. When reading a function key or an arrow key, each function must be called twice; the first call returns 0 or 0xE0, and the second call returns the actual key code.

These functions lock the calling thread and are therefore thread-safe. For non-locking versions, see _getch_nolock, _getwch_nolock.

By default, this function's global state is scoped to the application. To change this, see Global state in the CRT.
