Additionally, while you can avoid blocking your program via an extra thread, you might still have to wait for a newline character, before any key presses are signaled to you (terminal input usually is line-buffered).
The point is that there's no platform-independent way of doing this....
Yes, with luaLanes
If you are on a POSIX machine, see here for a possible solution using luaposix ...
