:thinking: I want to know scanf statement does not wait for a input in compiler?
or when it takes more input than the fixed number of input??
I use Microsoft visual studio 6.0

Re: scanf
Could you rephrase the question please, because it doesn't make any sense. scanf gets input from the user, I don't understand what "scanf statement does not wait for a input in compiler" means. scanf doesn't wait for anything from the compiler.

Are you having a problem with some code?

Re: scanf
Many thanks. Here is the detailed information.
I am executing a infinite while loop. now I want check a character input to justify whether the user is still interested tu carry on the loop. But here the scanf is not working.
thanking again

Re: scanf
use getche() rather than scanf command for Character inputs.


char ch;

Re: scanf
How exactly doesn't it work? What doesn't it do that you want it to?
Do you want the check for user input to pause the loop, or do you want the loop to continue running while a check for user input is made?

Re: scanf
use this
int a=1;
while (a==1)
printf("Enter Any Number Accept 1");

above one is giving u infinit loog but when the user give input 1 than it's terninate.

Re: scanf
But I was trying to take input a character in the same way. I have already applied the technique that you suggested for me. But I want to take a character. Is there any way in the same manner??

Thanking you in advance
