    n00b in neep of help

    Okay, I have just started to attempt learning C++ so please be patient with me, I am trying to explain this the best I can.



    Okay, I have having problems with a code found in the tutorial. Anyway, when i am done copying and pasting the code from the site to my C++ Complier, i hit compile and run. Then the console will open and it will say "Please enter a number". I enter a number and hit the enter key, but this is my problem. Every time I hit the enter key my console closes on me for no apparent reason. Can anyone tell me how to stop my console from closing when I hit the enter key? Thanks.

    Here is the code I am working with:
    Code:
     #include <iostream.h> 
    int main() 
    { 
        int thisisanumber; 
        cout<<"Please enter a number:";
        cin>>thisisanumber; 
        cout<<"You entered: "<<thisisanumber;
        return 0; 
    }

    FYI, this forum is for DOS programming, which isn't the same as a Windows Console
    You can post you questions re C++ in the C++ forum, or Windows stuff in the errmm.. Windows forum
    When all else fails, read the instructions.
    If you're posting code, use code tags: [code] /* insert code here */ [/code]
