    I assume you are writing the programs that are closing instantly? Try putting in
    Code:
    system("PAUSE");
    before
    Code:
    return 0;

    You could also try to put the correct h files at the top of your program.
    Code:
    #include <stdio.h>
    #include <stdlib.h>

    You could have just read the FAQ on the topic, but it seems no one bothers with that...

    What's a FAQ? Isn't that the noise a duck makes, or something?
