    C Console

    hi guys.
    I am a beginner c programmer and I like to learn some things is strange for me.
    this time I have a question :
    I want to make a change in console that i had seen this before in an IDE in ubuntu (code::blocks).how can I change console in C programming in a way that every time i write a code and run it at the end of console before exiting show me the execution time of that program.
    know I know i could write a code in my file.c that calculate the time of starting and ending the program and show the difference of them.but i don't want this. Is there any possible way to change console or any other option in a way that do this for me??

    I use windows 7 home premium 64 bit and Pelles C 7 64bit

    Unless you've messed something up, this is exactly what happens.

    Code:
    #include <iostream>
    
    using namespace std;
    
    int main()
    {
        cout << "Hello world!" << endl;
        return 0;
    }
    This is the output
    Code:
    Hello world!
    
    Process returned 0 (0x0)   execution time : 0.002 s
    Press ENTER to continue.
    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.

    Thanks to Salem and FloridaJo But I don't get how it is work....
    again, I just to change my console output in a way that without embedding a code in my project to calculate the execution, it did it automatically.
    i had seen this feature in Code::Blocks(IDE) in my ubuntu 12.04 OS before.and I don't know how to do it in windows and my pelles C IDE.
    Does any one know how to to this.
    Please help me

    Here is a C equivalent that should compile

    Code:
    <stdio.h>
    
    int main(int argc, char ** argv){
    
      printf("Hello World\n");
    
      return 0;
    }
    Save the code in a file named "hello.c". Compile and it will give you the same result.

    @Syscal - You forgot the #include

    Code:
    #include <stdio.h>
     
    int main(int argc, char ** argv){
     
      printf("Hello World\n");
     
      return 0;
    }

    It seemed to me that the programming language was irrelevant.

    Are you just trying to get a line like this
    Process returned 0 (0x0) execution time : 0.002 s
    out of the Pelles IDE?

    You could just get Code::Blocks for Windows.

    The other option is to write a small wrapper program that does what the Code::Blocks wrapper does (grab return code and execution time and write them to the console, then wait for a keypress), and modify your project so that it starts this helper instead of your program.
    All the buzzt!

    You could try the Pelles C forums.

    CIPHER_CS,
    This should do the job.

    Code:
    #include <stdio.h>
     
    int main (int argc, char** argv)
    {
        printf("Hello World\n");
        printf("\n");
        printf("Process returned 0 (0x0) execution time : 0.002 s\n");
        printf("Press ENTER to continue.\n");
        return 0;
    }
    anduril462 and Elkvis like this.
