    Question Window keeps closing....

    Hey everyone,

    I'm a newie to C++. I'm learning on my own and am finding it interesting. However, I'm having a problem. Everytime I execute my properly compiled code the window will not stay open until the execution is complete. It just flashes open and closes.

    I'm using DevC++. Can someone tell me what I need to do to stop this from happening?

    Much thanks,

    Drojen

    you can either add a cin.get() at the end your main function, or run your executable in Command Prompt

    Hi drojen,

    I'm in the same boat as you but I've been at it for a few months.

    You may need
    Code:
    cin.ignore();
    cin.get();
    or
    Code:
    system("PAUSE");
    I don't know about you but I don't know what this means:

    run your executable in Command Prompt
    Also, check the FAQ, this is covered there.

    Good luck

    it means you type cmd in the run menu, bring up a command
    prompt, then you can either type out the path, or drag
    and drop your program into the command window and
    hit enter to run your program within the command prompt.

    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.
