    Unhappy About running a program

    Hello!!!This is my first time getting in this site,so i'm glad my queries can be answered.
    Well...
    After making a program of simulating 'keywords' of DOS to C, and given that its structure is right, how can I make the program run as many times the user wants,by returning every time to the begining without ending?
    Thanks!!!

    All you would need to do is to put the program in a for loop that keeps repeating itself until the user enters something, escape for example.


    Code:
    /*the loop always initializes, and at the end of the loop it asks for a key.  If the user presses escape the loop ends*/
    char check;
    for( ;check!='ESC';getch(check) )
    {
     /*put your code here*/
    }

    A while or do...while loop is tailor made for this, whereas a for loop is best used when a known number of iterations are needed. The for works, it's just not an optimum answer.
