    I always just add a getch(); at the end and tell them to hit any button to end the program. Crude, but it works fine for me.

    What goes on forever? The display of blah blah blah? The program doesn't terminate?

    Post some code as you may have an infinite loop.
    I haven't used a compiler in ages, so please be gentle as I try to reacclimate myself. :P
