    Post C++ Compiler problem...

    Hi, i'm a new guy and been learning the basics of C++. I got a complier that is well known (Dev-C++) but there is a problem. Whenever I Run my program after I compile it, the CMD PROMPHT shows up and then closes, showing just a million secound of my program. So basicly, it starts the program and closes it. Anyways, Is there any code or anything that I can do to keep the window up? Thanks guy, later

    Note that Dev-C++ is not a compiler but an IDE. As for your problem, read How do I Stop my Windows Console from disappearing everytime I run my program?

    This is covered in the FAQ. Essentially, you need an input function to wait for a keypress, or you can run the application from the command line itself.

    Compilers can produce warnings - make the compiler programmers happy: Use them!
