Re: off topic: Doubt about gcc 3.3.3 and ( getchar() or scanf(%s) )?



It appears that when you use the getchar and type the option and 
enter, it returns the character and a LF. I added some things to 
yours, and it runs. I type a for the first option, and it prints A for the 
first option, and then prints 10 (decimal format) of option2. Then 
enter b for the scanf, and it prints out b

Not sure why it is including the LF with the getchar.

void main()
{
        char option,option2;
        printf("Choose an option:");
        option=toupper(getchar());
        printf("%c\n",option);
        option2=getchar();
        printf("Option2 %d\n",option2);
        printf("Choose another option:");
        scanf("%c",&option);
        printf("%c\n",option);
}
