    Keeping the console window open

    Hello,

    I'm programming in "C", and using the
    Dev.C++ v4 compiler. On set up I've
    unchecked the box:"Compile for win32 (no console").

    For new projects I choose console apps.

    Question? How do I keep the console window
    open?

    Thank you,

    Adock.

    Do u mean how to avoid the window quickly closing after you app runs? There are several ways, some are suggested at the FAQ too. You can use ways such as:

    getch();

    or

    system( "PAUSE" );

    And of course info like this would NEVER be hidden away in the FAQ ...and if you need it more specific than that how about Pausing the screen - Cprogramming.com FAQ

    You can also run your programs from the console than you can see their outputs, too.
