I assume that you are making a console program to be able to read in input like this.

The function you are looking for are the console commands.

Example, Console.read(), Console.readline(), and Console.write() .......

Below is an example of Console.Read.  You can search msdn at http://msdn.microsoft.com
for the usage of Console.readline and the other Console commands.

The Console.Readline() returns a string object.  The Console.Read() returns an integer (ordinal) value representative of the ascii value typed in.

int i;
char c;
while (true)
{
 i = Console.Read ();
 if (i == -1) break;
 c = (char) i;
 Console.WriteLine ("Echo: {0}", c);
}
Console.WriteLine ("Done");
return 0;
