Returns the last pressed character since previous call to frame function.

int Input_GetChar();

Return value

Returns the character code. If no key was pressed or there's no corresponding character, returns 0.


Input_GetChar translates the pressed key code to character considering the current keyboard states and input locale.

The key states are updated outside user's frame function. So don't use Input_GetChar in a loop to wait a key to be pressed, this will result in system hang up.
