    What does "won't run correctly in the compiler" mean? Compiler crashes? Gives errors? Program runs but exits right away?

    Add 2 std::cin.get() to the end of your code. You didn't tell it to wait for you to see the result.

    This is a common problem. Check the FAQ about waiting for a keypress. One simple solution is to add std::cin.ignore() after the call to std::cin >>, and then add std::cin.get() before the return 0. The ignore ignores the newline from when you hit <enter> after inputting the two numbers, the get() waits for you to hit <enter> again so it can get another character.

    If you program in C++, you need Boost. You should also know how to use the Standard Library (STL). Want to make games? After reading this, I don't like WxWidgets anymore. Want to add some scripting to your App?

    Ok, first off, for and while are loops. They can execute a sequence of code a set amount of times, hence the name loop.

    The format of the for loop is as follows -

    Code:
    for ( something = initial condition; something less (etc) than final condition; change the value of something )
    {
      // Do something here.
    }
    the something is normally an integer for regular purposes, but it can be anything. the while can be like this

    Code:
    while ( something is less/greater/not equal etc to something else )
    {
      // Do something here
    }
    If you set the conditions of those loops accordingly, and have a std::cout<< to output the value of the number being changed by the loop, you should get the program to work.

    Isn't it a book exercise?
