    Try this FAQ entry: http://faq.cprogramming.com/cgi-bin/...&id=1043284385

    The key is using getchar().
    If you understand what you're doing, you're not learning anything.

    It's a shell thing, not a C thing. [edit]I may have misunderstood the question.[/edit]

    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.*

    I think yes.
    getchar(). Is standard in <stdio.h>. So nevermind if you are in Linux or Win. just include <stdio.h> and getchar() will work.

    I use for Win (this is system dedicated), dont know what is for Linux
    Code:
    #include <stdlib.h>
    int main()
    {
         system("PAUSE");
         return 0;
    }
    Sorry for spelling errors, not English!

    You'd both know if you'd read the FAQ.
