    Seems like my scanf is skipping my user input. It is scanning for a character. I've looked at a few other places, hoping i can get a definite answer here. My code is:

    Code:
    scanf ("%c", start);
    if (start=='s' || start=='S'){
    //Run start functions...
    }
    the variable start is a character

    Again, the issue is that my program hits this line of code, skips the user input, and displays my else statement.

    Any / all help is appreciated.
