Look for a program named 'xev' or one named 'showkey' as examples.

If you are planning to implement the code in a C program, you can use the CURSES.H library, or the TERMIO.H library

#include < stdio.h >
#include < curses.h >

int ch;

ch = getch();

printf(" %d\n", ch);

If you are not familier with CURSES.H library, refer the man pages on the same to learn more of it. The above is the simplest of programs presented.
