How to get key press and release events on kernel 2.6 for a application in C?

I need to find the time between the keypress and key release using a program in C. A utility called showkey can do that in the raw ,key and ascii mode.Ascii mode does not bother with the key release.A sample code will do good.

GTK and Xlibs both contain routines which will let you do that, I believe. So there should be a way to do it without GUI toolkit as well.
