    DEV C++ help

    Ok i just got the Dev C++ compiler and when i execute my program is starts to bring up a ms-dos like window and then it disappears before i can even read anything. Im not sure if this isa problem with my compiler or if its a setting on my computer thats making this happen. If somebody could please tell me whats wrong i would really appreaciate it.

    At the end of your code, but before: return 0;
    Add this: cin.get();
    Code:
    #include <iostream>
    using namespace std;
    
    int main(void)
    {
    .
    .
       cin.get();
       return 0;
    }
    Or read the programming faq for more ways: http://faq.cprogramming.com/

    Hey i have the same compiler
    the solution mentioned before may work, but i think that my solusion is the preferred one. I had the same problem, but i saw it published in a book when i was at barnes-and-nobles that you should enter a line of code that looks like this:
    Code:
    system ("PAUSE")
    at the end of your program just before return 0. so a code would look like this
    Code:
    #include <iostream.h> 
    int main 
    { 
    */ write some code */ 
    system ("PAUSE"); 
    return 0;
    }

    If you use

    Code:
    system ("PAUSE");
    Make sure to include
    Code:
    #include <stdlib.h>
    With the Dev C++ compiler when you open new source files it has them already included.

    I believe <cstdlib> will work as well, but remember system() is OS dependent

    I agree with what you both said, and for the guy who started the post, using: system("PAUSE") is prolly the solusion you will find the best.

    yeah, it will, and should actually be used to follow standard. you'll probably get backwards warnings with stdlib.h. you should also be able to include <windows.h>.
