|Command||basic.%fgetc C Function/BASIC Program

|Description||returns the next character from the named input "stream".
Note that the character is returned as a number. Normal usage would override the type (see example below). The Unix "getc()" and "getchar()" cannot be used because they are macros, rather than functions.

c=(char)%fgetc( (char*)strm ) crt c Note the character type casting to override the default (int) type.
