How can I make my program work so that if I say Enter C for Cake and CA for cookie, If they enter C, they don't have to hit return?

You can't, remember that CA would be ambiguous from C as the first key is both C.

What you should do instead is:

from getch import getch
key = getch()
if key == 'C':
elif key == 'A':

As you can see, if the user typed in C, you would either have to get input again or else it will always become Cake.



try this code.

import getch

inp = getch.getch()
print("Enter C for Cake and CA for cookie")
if inp == "C":

like that
That should work

@RYANTADIPARTHI That won't work because getch only takes one character, and CA is 2

Try import getch. Then do answer = getch.getch() (this will cause them not to see what they type) or answer = getch.getche()which won't. However this is only for a single character so change CA to something like B.

Well, that would be difficult because both C and CA start with C. if the users enters C then you have them not hit return, then how would u know if the user meant to write C or CA?
