    Unhappy Keypress

    Well,
    I need to know the basics of keypresses in C++, And I have no idea where to start.

    The main point of this is because when I run one of my (dodgy) console apps in windows, it closes straight after the commands are done.

    Plz help me out..

    getch() returns the key pressed, look it up in the help.
