    Scanf scans for formatted user input.

    It's in stdio.h

    Scanf(); doesn't pause the program for input, does it? I forget.

    yes it is a simple question.. so why ask for it here?? why not use a search engine and read a whole document on it??

    MSDN is a good place.. and if all else fails... www.google.com
