ok, here is the deal, I have to do a couple of programs for my C++ class and I will be using devc++, now I have this educational version of borland which works similar to what they have at school, but I still have the problem of the program ending early. At school I don't have the problem, I made a program, and it ran fine, didnt' close early or anything, but when i had the exact same program ran on my comp, it ends early. I have no Idea why it did this, is there some setting I have to put. Also, at school, it executes a program with a white screen instead of a black one. I just don't want to hand in a program that won't compile and get an F on my first assignment.
