Same as it ever was (in the order I'd probably try):
1. You can switch stdin to raw mode using standard termios
calls (just like in C).
2. You can use ncurses.
3. You can use some other UI library like newt/slang, wxWidgets, etc.
4. You can shove long rusty needles through your eyeballs into
your brain until you no longer want to do non-buffered
5. You can make Xlib calls.
Once you've tried #5, #4 doesn't sound so bad...
