    DOS prompt disapearing

    Every time I start a bit file or a dos exe file I can only sence the blackness before it go away. I know I've heard about it before but not where. How do I set windows so the problem go away.
    Well english isn't my first language, (it's instead a useless language called danish which only 5 milion people speak!!) so if you think my grammar SUCKS (it does by the way) than you're more then welcome to correct me.
    Hell I might even learn something

    enter this before your main returns 0;
    Code:
    int x;
    std::cin >> x;

    It's not a program I've maid myself (I know about that thing ) it's BAT and EXE files for DOS in general.

    or run it from command.

    Say its game.exe and its located at c:\game.exe

    then run command (start--run--command)

    and type

    cd c:\ (press enter)

    game.exe (press enter)

    i know its in idiot terms but hey, i'm an idiot!

    It's a lot easier if you just run the compiled program from the command line.....much less complicated.
