    Compiling/Executing Source.

    I use the Dev-C++ and have tried Borland and whenever I compile, even a hello world application, a source, any source, something goes wrong in runtime; such as the DOS-Command Prompt flashing when I use the std::cout, or cout, option or sending a blank DOS window when I ask to int a variable, cout Type an integer, cin an input, and cout the input. Is there anyway around this?

    But that doesn't work with variables and I've seen other people make it work without cin.get();

    Well explain your problem better because honestly it doesn't make a lick of sense. All I was able to extract from it was "can't get my window to stay open"

    Code:
    #include <iostream.h>
    
    int main()
    {
         int num;
         cout<<"Input an integer.";
         cin>>num;                                            //Do I have to use cin.get() here?
         cout<<"You inputted "<<num;
      return 0;
    }
    What happens is a blank DOS window comes up that's not queuing my response and is just using a get()-liike manner to wait patiently.

    so you do not get a prompt that says "Input an interger."?

    Try
    Code:
    #include <iostream>
    
    using namespace std;
    
    int main()
    {
    	int num;
    	cout<<"Input an integer.";
    	cin>>num;
    	cout<<"You inputted "<<num<<endl;
    	return 0;
    }
