var ch:char;

 write('press any key');
 ch := readkey;

I tried the above program. It seems doesn't work to me.
I couldn't compile it. I'm using Tubo Pascal 7.0. Is readkey
a function?

It is a function from the CRT Unit.
You can use this function also to read a key like ESC (ch=CHR(27)) or one of the F-keys.
