    Hey, i am currently taking programing courses in my university and we are requiered to do C. I have of now been using "scanf" functions in place of "getchar", "getche" functions because the appearantly xcode does not posses the Conio.h library. If it is so how can i find or add this library to my environment? Or am i missibng something?

    Gone but not forgotten.
    conio.h is part of x86 DOS/Windows tools. It shouldn't be used on any machine. stdio.h provides several character and string input/output functions that are part of standard C. Your university isn't doing you any favours by avoiding proper function calls and using those console I/O functions instead.

    Your teachers are missing something. You can download the latest version of the C Standard at and if you look at that text, you will find that conio.h is nowhere mentioned.
