Question about keypad

Hi all,

I'm working on developing a U/I for a program, and I noticed that 'enter' on the keypad doesn't seem to be registering.... In the following code I get 'M' (77) from getch(). In my U/I mockup that I'm doing, if I use getch(), then enter = return = 10 (this is on a pad). However, arrow keys no longer work right. But if I use wgetch, the arrow keys work and enter equals 'M' again. On the screen, when I type enter, it's emitted as 'M['.

I'm not sure what I'm missing or not getting. :/

Is it the case that getch reads the character hovering under the cursor's current condition? The behavior that seems to be happening is that I press enter, and the character sequence M[ is emitted, and then getch sees the M, but no the bracket.

Thanks for any advice or hints you can share in terms of things to go read.


#include <ncurses.h>

int main () {

   int inch;


   keypad(stdscr, TRUE);

   move (0, 0);

   // while (inch = wgetch(stdscr)) {
   while (inch = getch()) {
      if (inch == 'q')
      move (3,0);
      wprintw(stdscr, "we got: %c - %d   ", inch, inch);
      move (0,0);
