    Simple question...

    I'm new to C++, trying to learn on my own.

    Is there a way to prompt a user to press enter to continue with a program.

    For example:

    cout << "To continue please hit ENTER."
    cin >> ???????????

    I know this will be simple to some, just getting started.

    No problem. Since you are just starting out you might want to take a look at the FAQ. It will most likely help you out.
