    Unhappy i want my output to be generated

    hello everybody. the program below uses the kbhit to get a character from the key board.
    when i tried to execute the program in Visual C++, the output showed press any key to continue.after pressing a key, i t immediately closed the output window.i want the statements, "you pressed a key" to be printed on the screen after user hits a key..
    how can i do it?
    Code:
    int main()
    {
    	char c;
    	while(kbhit('c'))
    	{
                            printf("you pressed a key");
    	}
    	return 0;
    
    }

    7. It is easier to write an incorrect program than understand a correct one.
    40. There are two ways to write error-free programs; only the third one works.*

    Hi,
    my suggestion would be to try the following:
    Code:
    int main()
    {
    	char c;
    	while(!kbhit('c')){}
    
            printf("you pressed a key");
    	
    	return 0;
    
    }
    This will loop until a key is pressed and then exit the loop. After the loop has finished, "you pressed a key" will be displayed. However, what will probably happen is that the console will close before you can see the output.

    Then you obviously didn't read all of the posts in the thread that Dave linked to.
    If you understand what you're doing, you're not learning anything.
