    Unhappy system problemo

    I have just found out about system("pause") and all that stuff, where can I find a site (or place ) that shows all of them
    If int main() is a function, shouldn't you have to put main(); at the end of your program?

    All of what exactly?

    The pause used in your example is simply a DOS (nowadays Windows console) command. You can do DIR, REN etc etc

    The commands themselves are OS specific, btw, but system() is an ANSI function.
    When all else fails, read the instructions.
    If you're posting code, use code tags: [code] /* insert code here */ [/code]

    If you have WinXP or 2000 you can just type in "HELP" in the command prompt and it will display all the possible commands with an explanation.

    I think Stan wants to know where he can find more functions like system("PAUSE"). The answer to that would be to go take a look in your include directives.
