    Input Options.

    I hav created a menu in DOS window.
    IT looks like this

    MAIN MENU
    1.GAME
    2.HIGHEST SCORES
    3.EXIT

    the code
    Code:
    main()
    { 
       int option,result;
       cout<<"MAIN MENU";
       cout<<"\n1.Game";
       cout<<"\n2.HIGHEST SCORES";
       cout<<"\n3.EXIT";
       cin>>option;
    cin.get();
      
    if(option==1)
    {
      result=system("game.exe");
     cout<<result;
    }
    if(option==2)
    {
      result=system("highest.exe");
     cout<<result;
    }
    if(option==3)
    {
      return 0;
     
    }
    what should i do to make sure the options are executed without the user pressing enter?

    thanks in advance..

    Check the FAQ for an answer to "How to read input without enter", perhaps?

    Compilers can produce warnings - make the compiler programmers happy: Use them!
    Please don't PM me for help - and no, I don't do help over instant messengers.

    What compiler are you using?
    Implicit main is invalid in C++.

    Outside of your DOS world, your header file is meaningless.
