Hey C688... WOOHOO.

You may not know it but you are my mentor, you put me in my place and show me the error of my ways on many things. ;o)

Congrats on getting "The Order of the Wizard's Hat" award.

Much of your coding technique is in my blood now and for that I can only say thank you.

One thing I use is this snippet you showed me early in my shell scripting career:
Code:
inkey()
{
	char=""
	stty -icanon min 0 time 1
	char=$(dd count=1 2> /dev/null)
}

Hopefully is it POSIX compliant as it will be in the next project using 'dash'.
Anyhow congrats and thanks for your input.
