Getchar

getchar function will accept a character from the console or from a file, displays immediately while typing and we need to press Enter key for proceeding.

Syntax of getchar() is
int getchar(void);
It returns the unsigned char that they read.If end-of-file or an error is encountered getchar() functions return EOF.

For example:
char a;
a= getchar();
The function “getchar()” reads a single character from the standard input device, the keyboard being assumed because that is the standard input device, and assigns it to the variable “a”.
