Or without indexing:
for c in "string":
However I'm not sure if thats what Nathan meant.
If you mean how do you read a string of characters
from a file use read() with a size of 1.
If you mean from stdin then it depends on the platform.
Use curses for Linux/MacOS or use msvcrt.
In both cases the function is getch()
