cbreak() public

Put the terminal into cbreak mode.

Normally, the tty driver buffers typed characters until a newline or carriage return is typed. The Curses.cbreak routine disables line buffering and erase/kill character-processing (interrupt and flow control characters are unaffected), making characters typed by the user immediately available to the program.

The Curses.nocbreak routine returns the terminal to normal (cooked) mode.

Initially the terminal may or may not be in cbreak mode, as the mode is inherited; therefore, a program should call Curses.cbreak or Curses.nocbreak explicitly. Most interactive programs using curses set the cbreak mode. Note that Curses.cbreak overrides Curses.raw.
