    help running a program from compiler

    Hi!

    I've been reading the tutorials on cprogramming.com, I took the code from the second tutorial where you can add your age and it tells you if you are young or old, etc.
    I put in my age and I hit enter, and immediately the screen goes away. I don't even hardly have time to read what it says after I input my age and hit enter. Is there anyway I can stop it from exiting out?

    Thanks!!

    Open a console window first... then type the name of the executable in the directory where it resides. Then it will run and the window will remain open...

    if you desire to double click the executable, then you will need to read the FAQ on pausing a program, and pause your program right before it ends.
