You get better info if you print values in hex, rather than character. How would you know that the extra character is a null and not a CR or LF?

I have given the input to the program using HyperTerminal. I have
entered only abc as my input.

Why do you think that this is a problem in getchar()?

With the above observation I am thinking that getchar() function is appending a null character after each character.

I think that it is extremely unlikely that buffered input, which getchar() uses, is inserting extra characters into the input stream.

You need to be careful using a terminal emulator (whether Hyperterminal,
minicom, or any other).  There are lots of problems when buffered input
and output are interspersed.  Check your configuration.

You can use GDB, as Jeff suggests, to step through getc() (which getchar()
calls) and see what actually is received from the terminal emulator.
