Beginner question read char in console without pressing enter

Hi, I’m learning the basics of Rust and trying to capture a keypress for a simple console app. More specifically, I want to capture the arrow up|right|down|left keys. In C/C++ I would use something like the ´getchar´ function inside a while-loop.

I couldn’t find any similar way to do this in Rust. Instead I found this but it seems very complicated

Any ideas?
Thanks in advance :slight_smile:
