Does single char input, like C getch/getche
The getch module does single-char input by providing wrappers for the conio.h library functions getch() (gets a character from user input, no output - this is useful for password input) and getche() (also outputs to the screen), if conio.h does not exist, it uses a stub-library using termios.h and other headers to emulate this behaviour:
import getch # ... char = getch.getch() # User input, but not displayed on the screen # or char = getch.getche() # also displayed on the screen
Hint: On Windows, you can use:
import msvcrt # ... char = msvcrt.getch() # or, to display it on the screen char = msvcrt.getche()
as a standard library alternative to this module
