It gets worse than that, because what your program sees when keys are
pressed also depends what DOS/Windows compiler you're using:

- the DJGPP port of gcc offers near-perfect source code compatibility
  with the Linux port of gcc but its support libraries return LF if
  ENTER is typed and zero if function or cursor keys are typed.

- Borland C 4.5 is almost totally incompatible with gcc at the source
  code level (it uses non-standard keyboard access functions) but it
  does return CR for ENTER. The only way to read function and cursor
  key presses is to look at the keyboard flags register and retrieve
  and use scan codes.

I'm certain there are other variations generated by other compilers, but
these are the DOS/Windows compilers I know. Anyway, that should be
enough to give you the picture...
