    Total n00b question

    Hopefully, this is an easy question, but I can't figure it out. I am using Dev-C++ to compile and execute programs. However I can't see the output of them. I even started with the simple Hello World to test the output and I can't find it. I do see a dos window open and close quickly, but I can't see the contents of it. Any ideas on how to check the output?

    I am learning C on my own, so I am sure to be lurking around here a lot in the future.

    Thanks!

    In the FAQ, there is an entry talking about "How do I prevent the application window from disappearing".

    Compilers can produce warnings - make the compiler programmers happy: Use them!

    Outside of your DOS world, your header file is meaningless.
