    Question Anyone check whats wrong with my code?

    HI.

    I am still practising basics of C++ by making loads of mini programs.

    I made one which converts seconds into hours:minutes:seconds

    In my other programs, i use
    Code:
     system("PAUSE");
    to have a 'press any key to continue...' message as a pause. But with this code it doesn't work. Can anyone help??

    I attached the relevant .cpp file.

    What system are you compiling it on?
    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.

    One problem i found was this:

    Code:
    #include <iostream.h>
    using namespace std;
    the old .h version doesn't use namespaces, atleast not in MSVC you might wanna try changing this to the new standard include file:

    Code:
    #include <iostream>
    using namespace std;
    if that still don't fix it for you, you might wanna try writing your own little function something alike this:

    Code:
    void Pause()
    {
        cout << "Press enter to continue . . .";
        cin.ignore(255, '\n');
    	cin.get();
    }
    remember that a function like system("PAUSE"); is very system/compiler specific, posting the compiler and OS ur using would be useful

    To use
    Code:
    system("somecommandhere");
    you must include cstdlib.
