I am learing C (used Fortran for many years). I compiled a simple program on a free compiler I got off the internet, the problem is that the output screen automatically closes as soon as the program stops writing to the screen. Fortran does not do this. Is there some type of pause statement I need to put in or is it a compiler issue. The compiler I am using is Miracle C, are there any other good free compulers? Thanks in advance.
