read line from stdin

How do you read a line from stdin ?

i lost my time with gets which seems not te be available.
Tried to use FGets, but get errors.

Thanks Thomas. I searched

Thanks Thomas.
I searched more than an hour for this info.

Any idea why this program does not give me the opportunity to enter a string?

8.Amiga OS 4:S> guis:c/test
Please enter a string
str

8.Amiga OS 4:S>

  1. int main(void) {
  2. char str[100];
  3.  
  4. Printf("Please enter a string\n ");
  5. FGets(Input(), str, 80);
  6. Printf("str %s\n",str);
  7. ///printf( makeupper(str));
  8. return 0;
  9. }

I don't have the possibility to try it out soon. But I guess it has something to do with buffered I/O which might not be supported by the CON window. Try this instead:

Read (Input(), str, 80);

Note that this only works for a window. If you read from a file it will not stop at \n.
