I am a newbie to linux and have been trying to write a program using
getc(stdin). Its a program on password whereby I didnt want to display the
user input password. But my following program is not working properly.
Please help me!!
My Hello cannot be printed out after ./temp
If I put the printf("Hello") after the refresh() and endwin(), then I am able to print out this Hello. Could someone please correct my source code? Also what is the meaning of refresh() and the endwin().
Really? I am not sure because I never use getc(stdin) in the linux environment before.
I thought this is a "MUST" include <ncurses.h> whenever getc(stdin) is used in the program. What actually is wrong with my program, the printf??
Appreciate any help given!!
Your program was not printing anything for two reasons. First, you used the noecho() to prevent the password from echoing to the screen. Second, you need to use printw when writing to the curses buffer. The refresh writes the buffer to the screen.
