Question Keyboard scanning in linux kernel space


I'm a little newbie in the linux kernel programming world...

I have to develop a kernel module interacting with the user: to do so, it has to scan from the keyboard...
I know that I can't use the 'fscanf' function, and I saw in 'linux/kernel.h' that I can use 'vsscanf' and 'sscanf' functions... but I don't know how...

Does anybody know about this???
