Hi there,
 
I am new to using Ruby and I am writing my first real programs and I have something I was wonndering about:
 
I have a menu that I would like users to respond to simply by entering a single character.  I have tried both STDIN.getc and gets, but both require a carriage return.  Is there a command I haven't found that will actively read STDIN to process a single character as soon as it is entered?
 
Thanks in advance,
Keith
