    Question Dos Window closes after I press enter

    If anyone can help i'd appreciate it.

    I'm writing a program that accepts input "cin>>".

    I declare the variable and all, but when i input it during execution, the DOS Window automatically closes and brings me back to the Compiler. What's up with that?

    Any help is appreciated.
    Thanks

    An example

    This is what I was talking about referring to the "cin>>" problem.


    #include <iostream.h>
    main()
    {
    int S1=15, S2=20;

    cout<<"\n Enter Score 1, Press Enter Key: ";
    cin>>S1;
    cout<<"\n Enter Score2, Press Enter Key: ";
    cin>>S2;

    return 0;
    }

    No Matter what I type, after "Press Enter Key: " (after i compile and run of course) ..the Dos Window closes when i press enter. Why is that? and is this program written correctly?
