    Unhappy Dev c++ compiler problem

    i'm using dev c++ compiler, I was just trying out some c code, just to display text on a screen, the compiler doesn't show this program. This is my code......

    /* basic program */
    #include <stdio.h>
    main()
    {
    printf ("text to be displayed");
    }

    any ideas?

    I think it works. It's just that it's quits too fast that u can't see the results. Try

    Code:
    /* basic program */ 
    #include <stdio.h> 
    int main() 
    { 
       printf ("text to be displayed"); 
       getch();
       return 0;
    }

    Thumbs up Thanks for the code, don't know why my code didn't work

    Thanks for the code, I wasn't getting any error message, it kind of looks like the program was running but nothing was appearing, my desktop just kind of flashed as if a new program had been opend, the code I had put into the compiler was taken from a proper C book, think i'll put it in the bin!
