How can you get input from the arrow keys in a console/DOS program? Each key returns -32 from getch()... so I''m in the dark.

I did this a long time ago, so I am not sure if this will work or if it is right


int c = getch();

if(c <= 0)
c = getch() + 0x100;

switch(c) {
case 333 :
}

Not sure of the 333 number. Probably might be something else.
