    Unhappy it is too fast......

    Hi all~

    I am learning C++ step by step with my BCB, and I try to write some simple code under console mode, but the result splashed no more than half a second when running my code. how could I see it clearly ?

    Hey I know it is not the most sophisticated way of doing it, but it does the job...

    Code:
    int main(void)
    {
       // you code here
    
       char c; cin>>c; //consoles waits for a char input before exiting.
       return 0;
    }
    hope that helps for now, but there are many other ways of doing it.

    umm...

    put getchar() above return 0 and that will work.

    So that you don't have to include another header or create a new variable, just use get:
    Code:
      <snip the whole program>
      cin.get()
      return 0;
    }
    -Prelude
    My best code is written with the delete key.

    I have 2 wonderful books, and it is a pity that I could not figure it out right now. thanx, guy~

    one of my book is Thinking in C++, I was sometimes confused when reading it, would it be suitable for beginners just like me ?

    Yes that's a good book, but some parts of it assume that you have prior knowledge to C.

    Try C++ Pimer (forgot the author) or The C++ Programming Language by Bjarne Stroustrup or any book that does not assume prior programming experience.

    yah~ I heard those 2 books before. I remember one of them have more than 1000 pages, right ? and the total would be 1800 pages or so, God~

    anyone could lend me time then ?

    Talking Take it easy

    No no you don't have to read ALL of the pages

    Just use the books as your reference. Consult it if you have a few programming questions in mind then apply them to your codes

    That's what I did.

    if you don't want the user to have to press a key, and would rather have a delay, just include <windows.h> and use the Sleep(..) function:

    Code:
    #include <iostream>
    #include <windows.h>
    using namespace std;
    
    int main(int argc, char *argv[])
    {
         cout << "Hello World";
         Sleep(1000); // Sleep(Number Of Milliseconds);
         cout << "\n1 Second Delay!";
         Sleep(1000);
         return 0;
    }
    "There are three kinds of people in the world...
    Those that can count and those that can't."
