    Console on Windows

    Hello. I started learning C++ on a Mac, and on the Mac when I ran something like, "when I input this, output this," the console would stay up so that I could see the output. Now, I wanted to try doing my homework on my laptop so I downloaded Dev-C++, except that when I run something either I press 'Enter' and it exits or it exits when it's done running the program. Did I do something wrong or is there a way to make the console stay up so that I can see the output?

    So run the console. (Start -> Accessories -> Command Prompt)

    EDIT: Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah Dev-C++. It's like a zombie; it just won't die. If you can switch to something like Code::Blocks you'll be happier. (Plus C::B, if you run it inside the IDE with Ctrl-F10 automatically does the "keep the console open" thing.)

    A zombie..? That doesn't sound good at all. Thanks a bunch though, I'll do that.
