I am using scanf c to read a Y/N response


I'm using scanf %c to read a Y/N response, but later input gets skipped.

You wanted scanf %c to read a single character, and it tried to, but when you tried to type that single character at it, before the rest of the input system would accept it, you had to hit the RETURN key, too. scanf read only the one character, but that extra newline was still sitting in an input buffer somewhere, and it's that extra newline (seemingly representing a phantom blank line) which was received by your later input call.
