How do you make the computer pause until a key is pressed, for example the space bar.

Also what commands can I use to clear the screen and change text colour.


By the way, I'm using Borlad C++ Version 3.1 compiler on a 486 66 mhz.

Cheers.

You ask 3 questions instead 1. Here are answers:
1) Use "bioskey" function to determine keyboard buffer emptyness
and scan key code.
2) Use "clrscr" function to clear screen.
3) Use "textcolor" function to change text color (you must use
"cprintf" function instead "printf" to accept changing).
All function prototypes are in "conio.h".

Isn't there a function called "Keypressed()"  ?

I'm sure I have used it in one of my programs, nut I'm not sure where.
