    Question with compiling

    I have the Dev-C++ compiler, using windows Vista if that helps. Whenever I try compiling, it will do fine but when the window comes up to show my program, it closes instantly.

    Code:
    #include <iostream>
    
    int main()
    {
     std::cout << "hello\n";
     return 0;
    }
    I just started using C++, and I can't figure out what is wrong. Any ideas?

    The program completed, it did its job and closed. You need to pause it if you wanted it to stay open or await your input to close.

    Code:
    #include <iostream>
    
    int main()
    {
       std::cout << "hello\n";
       cin.get(); //pause program 
    
     return 0;
    }
