kbhit() source code

I need C source code (not copyrighted) for a kbhit() function that will work on the Windows NT operating system.  Can you provide me with this source code?

Thanks in advance.

Win32 API has a function...

SHORT GetAsyncKeyState(
  int vKey // virtual-key code
);

which determines if a particular key is pressed.

Also there is ...

BOOL GetKeyboardState(
  PBYTE lpKeyState // address of array to receive status data
);

Which gives you current entire keyboard state, so you can see exactly which keys are up/down etc.

If you just want to respond to keys being hit, then handle WM_CHAR or WM_KEYUP/WM_KEYDOWN messages and so on.

Have you tried to CALL BIOS function which waits for keypress.
It is something like this.

union REGS in, out;
in.h.ah = 0x00;
int86 (0x16, &in, &out);

This at least tells me where to look for more informatin.  However, I am trying to port a program I wrote for the OS/2 operating system over to Windows NT.  It is not a GUI program.  I should have mentioned this.  Everything works but the _kbhit() function.  I was using the IBM CSet2 Compiler, and did not have the source for this one function.  What I really would like is the source to append to the end of my program so my program will compile and work without me having to do a lot of study, as I haven't used C for a long time.  I would be glad to change the grade to excellent and add 100 points for such source code.  Here is how I use the function in my source code:

if ((_kbhit()) != 0) {
           kb_ch = _getch();
           if (kb_ch == 27)
              exit(0);
}
