Guys, I am writing a program. In a situation I want to print something and go to clear the screen but when i clear the screen the printed text also gets cleared. I want it such that after the print we have to click a key for the screen to get cleared. Is there a command or code which does that. Code : In TC or TC++ Code: printf("Click to continue"); getch(); system("clear"); But in linux there is no header "conio" and hence no getch(). So i cant do what the above code snipped does. Please help.
