    Question Dev-C++

    I'm using Dev-C++ 4.x and when i do a console application (DOS) and use something like:
    cout << "Hello";
    He just says hello and exits very fast .. faster than you can even read it. Unlike in VC++, he used to say Press any key to continue/exit or whatever... How's that done?
    Thanks
    what does signature stand for?

    Before return 0, put this:
    Code:
    system("PAUSE");

    Question Dev-C++

    Is it always that hard to create a window and some command buttons in Dev-C++ ?? Why dont they make the tools, just like in Borland and Microsoft? Won't it be easier to create Windows Applications??
    Thanks

    Hi! I'm totally new to this whole programming thing, so if this is a stupid question please forgive me
    I tried to use the system ("PAUSE") command like you suggested but when I compile the program I get an error message of :

    implicit declaration of function `int system(...)'

    I have no idea what that means so could anyone please help me?

    Include these:
    stdlib.h
    stdio.h
    conio.h

    Also link to the conio.o file

    No prob...
    To link using Dev-C++ 4.0 & 4.1:
    1. Right click on the project name and go to project settings

    2. Go to "Further Linker Options" or soemthing like that, it'll be the first thing

    3. Type this: "conio.o" w/o the quotes

    For Dev-C++ 5.0 and up:
    1. Same as Dev-C++ 4.0 & 4.1

    2. The last box, type this:
    "C:\Dev-C++\Lib\conio.o" w/o quotes, and this is assuming that C:\Dev-C++\ is the directory, if not, then you'll have to change it.

    Thanks for all your help! I've already finished my first program ( something simple, of course, just a simple use of the Pithagorean Theorem)! I was wondering, is there a way to avoid getting that " Press any key to continue " message at the end of the program but at the same time still have the program wait for you to close the window?

    Ah, in that case, it will have to wait a few months
    I copied the program to a floppy but when I tried to open it from the floppy it wouldn't work and my computer froze a couple of times. Does this mean I can't copy programs to disk?
