    Question Cout<< Problems!

    The screen displays Hello when I use cout<<"hello"; for only like one second (I think because I have virtual DOS) But I need it to stay untill I press enter or something what is the command for that?

    Someone told me before but I forgot, I think it was something like cin.get;

    Check the FAQ. Its in there.
    The word rap as it applies to music is the result of a peculiar phonological rule which has stripped the word of its initial voiceless velar stop.

    You mean getch()?
    Well, there are a few things wrong with your code:

    1) It does not work.
    2) It does not work.
    3) It does not work.

    Hope this helps.

    Its ok

    I found it it was std::cin.get(); but now I need to know how to put charcters (More than one) into my program, like I ask someone to type there name and tell them the name they typed, and I looked all in the FAQ but couldnt find it!

    Easiest is to use std::string (in <string>).
    For example:
    Code:
    string str;
    cin >> str; // Gets you the first word.
    getline(cin, str); // Gets you the whole line.
    *edit*
    A relevant link.

    I think this is what you are looking for
    Code:
    system("pause")
    put that right before you return 0;
    Knowledge is power and I want it all
