When I was reading a thread the other day I saw someone use the kbhit( ) function. Does this function leave the character of the key pressed in the input buffer? What header is this function in?

Is kbhit () an ANSI standard? His compiler might not support it, GCC''s conio.h doesn''t have the kbhit function in it.

jsut as a side note, sometimes you can find a similar function called bioskey().

This one can be configured to act like kbhit, getch and (I think this is the third one) getche.

Header file was bios.h if I remember correctly. Was under Borland. Extremely doubt it is under any standard apart from borland.
