    Well, if you are in main or winmain, you can use return 0; to exit the program at any point.


    edit: oops, question misunderstood. So you mean to say your compiler automatically generates code that asks you to press a key?

    i mean that it doesn't display anything. It just exit.

    e.g say it displays "hello world" n then instead of displaying "press any key to continue", it just disappears.

    Oh... well you could find the answer to that in the FAQ...

    anyway, use

    system("PAUSE");

    and don't tell anyone I told you =)

    It sounds like you are asking to do the opposite of what so many people want when they ask this type of question. You don't want to have the 'Press any key to continue' displayed after your program runs. Is that right?

    If so, I am assuming you are using Visual C++. When you hit 'Execute', it automatically adds that so that the console window won't disappear with all your output. If you double-click on the .exe file yourself then it should disappear after the program finishes. I don't know how to make Visual C++ not leave the console window up after execution. I usually use 'Go' (F5) in the debugger anyway which doesn't wait for a key press.

    I apologize if my assumptions are wrong. Hope that helps.

    I don't know if this helps but I think exit() is defined in iostream:
    Code:
    exit(EXIT_FAILURE);
    //or
    exit(EXIT_SUCCESS);

    Don't post the same thing in two forums.
    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.

    It just goes to show that you, with over 500 posts, have never bothered to READ THE RULES! Even though it's at the top of EVERY SINGLE FORUM...

    Quzah.
    Hope is the first step on the road to disappointment.

    i've read the rules but i didn't find anything that said that you can't post the same question in two different forums.

    i reason why i do it is because if people in this forum can't help me, i might have better luck in another forum. You seemed to forget the fact that many people are registered to only one forum.

    The people that are registered in more than one forum would recognize the question anyway. They don't have to open it.

    You make it hard to help you. Actually I have not the slightest clue what you just said. It's not that easy to understand american kiddy language if you're not a native speaker.

    I have to agree with 7stud and nishzone on this one. What's wrong with posting the same question to forums on two different sites? The rules say not to post to more than one board, but I always assumed that meant on this site.

    Personally, I just thinks its funny when I find the same question on a different site. Kinda like, 'caught ya!'

    By the way, nishzone, did you get your answer?

    i'm not american and english is not my first language either. i usually make a lot of typing mistakes too. But i'm trying my best so that it's as understandable as possible.

    nope, i found out that i misunderstood the question that i was asked. So i'm not gonna bother with it anymore.

    i tried so many stuff but i wasn't successful.

    i'm starting to wonder whether it can actually b done.

    A big "Thank you" to everybody who was trying to help though

    umm... i think i know the problem..
    if you don't use the excute button in VC++ and run the program by itself that pause won't be there.
