    i have no idea!?!

    here is some code for a menu chooser. well, when I run it, i can't seem to get the strings to pop up that tell you what you chose. The program just automatically shuts down after i hit enter after my choice. plz help





    Code:
    //Menu Chooser
    //Demonstrates the switch statement
    
    #include<iostream>
    
    int main()
    {
        std::cout<<"Dfficulty Levels"<<std::endl;
        std::cout<<"1 - Easy"<<std::endl;
        std::cout<<"2 - Normal"<<std::endl;
        std::cout<<"3 - Heroic"<<std::endl;
        std::cout<<"4 - Legendary"<<std::endl;
        
        int choice;
        std::cout<<"Choice: "<<std::endl;
        std::cin>>choice;
        
        switch(choice)
        {
            case 1:
                    std::cout<<"You picked Easy"<<std::endl;
                    break;
            case 2:
                    std::cout<<"You picked Normal"<<std::endl;
                    break;
            case 3:
                    std::cout<<"You picked Heroic"<<std::endl;
                    break;
            case 4:
                    std::cout<<"You picked Legendary"<<std::endl;
                    break;
            default:
                    std::cout<<"You made an illegal choice"<<std::endl;
        }
        
        return 0;
    }

    This is a great opportunity to learn about debuggers. If you are using visual studio I'll explain how.
    The crows maintain that a single crow could destroy the heavens. Doubtless this is so. But it proves nothing against the heavens, for the heavens signify simply: the impossibility of crows.
