    use the function call

    PleasePauseForResultReading();



    Please note: heavy sarcasm.

    Your question is so broad that it's near impossible to answer. How about you tell us what you are trying to do?? what OS? are you programming GUI or console?? SOMETHING that may allow us to help you.

    essentially, no matter what you are doing, YOU are the one who tells the code to do something, so if you want it to read results, then code it so that it does it!!!

    I finding it hard to understand your problem, even with a little imagination!

    AH!! i think i might have just understood what you want!!

    do you mean:

    "how can i stop the program from printing results out on the screen so that i can read them??"

    is that what you meant?? if so, then lookup getchar().... use that function to wait for a keypress before continuing.

    Is your program a console program that prints more information than can fit on the screen?Then you can also use the MORE switch to pause the screen output after one page.

    It is used like this:

    c:\>programname.exe|more

    I use this when there is a lot of debug code that is also printed.
