    Please any key to continue...

    Hi All~ I'm New from here and new user for C++.

    My program will display a menu. And push 'Q' or 'q' to exit the program.
    I would like to display a message after this. Then click 'any key' to exit the program.
    But it will auto quit after i click 'Q' or 'q'.

    Any suggestion? What should i do? Thanks.


    #include <iostream.h>
    #include <stdlib.h>
    #include <stdio.h>
    #include <conio.h>


    //# include <iostream>
    using namespace std;

    class Menu
    {
    char option;
    public:
    void display(void);
    void process(void);
    char getOption()
    { return option; }
    };

    void Menu::display()
    {
    cout << "\n\nSuper Cheap Super Drinks \n\n";
    cout << "Brands available: \n\n";
    cout << "1. <C>oke $1.30 \n";
    cout << "2. <S>prite $1.20 \n";
    cout << "3. <F>anta $1.10 \n";
    cout << "4. <R>otTooth $0.90 \n";
    cout << "5. SuperFi<Z> $1.00 \n\n";
    cout << "Please select a brand: ";
    cin >> option;
    }

    void Menu:rocess()
    {
    switch(option)
    {
    case '1': cout << "\nCOKE DISPENSED. HAVE A NICE DAY!";

    Also, to save yourself all that typing, instead of this:
    Code:
    case '5': cout << "\nSUPERFIZ DISPENSED. HAVE A NICE DAY!";
    break;
    case 'Z': cout << "\nSUPERFIZ DISPENSED. HAVE A NICE DAY!";
    break;
    case 'z': cout << "\nSUPERFIZ DISPENSED. HAVE A NICE DAY!";
    break;
    do this:
    Code:
    case '5': case 'Z': case 'z': 
    cout << "\nSUPERFIZ DISPENSED. HAVE A NICE DAY!";
    break;

    for the "press any key..." you can do this too:
    Code:
    system("pause");

    Wouldn't that be limiting system-wise? As in not work on other OSes?

    thanks all.

    And if i tried to add a class for store the information of "Coins, Cans number & Brand" to make it works as a vending machine. I should add a New class of "Container" to store of this information?

    Another question is about constructor & destructor.
    I'm still not very understand how to use it. So i would like to see some example of how to use this. Have any example can show me? Thanks.
