Subject: Re: [Caml-list] catch keypressed

Thanks for your help, I'll use the following function which works very
well :

 open Unix;;
 let waitkey() =
   let m = tcgetattr stdin in
   tcsetattr stdin TCSANOW { m with c_vmin = 0; c_icanon = false };
   let s = String.create 1 in
   ignore(read stdin s 0 1);
   tcsetattr stdin TCSAFLUSH m;
   s.[0]
 ;;

Thanks again.

Vincent
