    Still a newbie =(.

    Well I am reading the Tut's on C++ Proggraming and when I compile and build my prog (DOS Based) with MS Visual C++ I enter something like what my age is, Id put 104 and it would close, I am using Win XP Pro, do you think it has to do something with XP's piece of #### CMD?

    it has nothing to do with XP.
    it has to do with your code.

    A very common question.....

    try adding cin.get(); at the end of the program to pause it. You then press enter to make it continue.
    When all else fails, read the instructions.
    If you're posting code, use code tags: [code] /* insert code here */ [/code]

    XP is not a piece of crap. I find it very stable and much better than any other Windows I've ever used.

    What you just told us has NOTHING to do with Windows and EVERYTHING to do with you. I bet you messed up the code. Try posting it and we'll be glad to help.

    Hehe, its the closing thing....
    Code:
    #include <stdlib.h>
    int main()
    {
       system("pause");
       return 0;
    }

    That was a fast reply(s)!

    Code:
    #include <iostream.h>
    
    int main()
    
    {
    
      int thisisanumber;
    
      cout<<"Please enter a number:";
    
      cin>>thisisanumber;
    
      cout<<"You entered: "<<thisisanumber;
    
      return 0;
    
    }
    If I enter a number and press enter it will just close.

    Think about it...you're not opening up a new instance of cmd or command.com, so why would it NEED to stay open? It doesn't. You don't tell it to stay open, so why should it?

    As was said, use cin.get() or getch() or kbhit() or blahblahblahblahblah...
