    : Try using the bioskey() defined in bios.h
    You can assign the return value to an integer and compare to get the keystroke. First experiment with the code and print out the values and keep these values as reference. The ordinary getch() routine can also be used. If the getch() returns 0 then call getch() again to retrieve the scan code of the keystroke.

    Eg: int key=bioskey(0);
    if(key==20480)cout<<"Down arrow pressed";

    getch()
    =======
    char ch=getch();
    if(ch==0)ch=getch();// this getch() reads the scan code for two byte keystrokes.

    You could find out the char integer value and do it that way also like:

    char a = integer value;

    Note: not valid syntax which may be obvious.

    To add onto what I have said in my previous post you also may consider using.

    [code]
    #include
    [/code]

    with that in mind I have seen a tutorial that uses that header file for moving around the screen. My previous post explains a different approach.
