Both are used to take char input. The difference is that when getch is used the entered character will not be displayed on the screen, on the other hand getche displays the inputted char on the screen.

getch() reads only single character from the screen getche() reads a single character from the keyboard and displays immediately on output screen without waiting for enter

The difference between getch() and getche() is very minute. Both takes a single character from user. Only difference is that getch() don't display the character on the output screen and getche() immediately displays that charcter on screen without any need for giving enter..

getch is the the function that waits for an input from the user. There is nothing like "getche" may be you have seen some functions names or variable names. both are used to take input character but have somedifference. getche() give output without any buffer but the getch() give output with buffer.
