Hi.
How can I read data (e.g. an integer) from keyboard in DOS environment?
And how can I echo something on screen?
I use windows.
Thanks Smile

EDIT by DOS386 : moved from DOS to Windows and fixed subject (as guessed the real problem behind this post)

Apparently you are searching for integer input and output conversion. There are some examples in this forum (maybe M$WCRT.DLL could do too ...). Input a string and convert it into an integer then. Convert integer into string and output the string. Check some console examples.

btw, does windows console support utf16 surrogates? ive tried without success. It also goes to utf8 (WriteConsoleA) beyond 3 bytes.
