Unbuffered Input

I'd like to know how to handle unbuffered input. For example, a user would press a key and the program would continue without having to press enter after pressing that
key. I am using g++ (the gnu compiler) on a Solaris system.

Thanks in advance for any help.

getch () and its derivates (make "man getch") returns a
character. There are different modes available which determine, whether it will actually wait for a character or just give an
ERR-value if none is available.

In anycase, it does not need a return to deliver a pressed key!
