    Complete Beginner taking Intro to Programming Concepts

    Hello, I'm taking this class online at Valencia and I am currently very confused.

    Our second assignment is to create some code based on the concepts we learnes in a video. Currently I've learned Input and Output and Arithmetic code using int and double.

    The professor uses system("pause") to end the line, but I am not able to execute it at all. Can anyome show an example? thank you. I use Windows 10.

    I tried using Visual Studio 2017, but cannot find the win32 console application the professor used. Therefore, I used DevC++. Can one list how to create a new project with the win32 console application?

    Sorry for my terrible vocabulary, I'm having trouble understanding the terms.

    Creating a Console Application

    I hope the dev-c++ you got is this one -> Dev-C++ download | SourceForge.net
    And not the obsolete bloodshed version.

    1. Read the manual pages to find out what each format conversion does.
    2. Make sure your formats and parameters match up.

    This is considerably easier if you use dev-c++, because it uses the GCC compiler. GCC can check that your formats and parameters are consistent.
    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.

    I would say no but I'm biased in favor of codeblocks, I use it for everything.
    Devoted my life to programming...

    Thank you for the response. Thanks to your link, I was able to find the win32 console application (I didn't download it).

    And yes, I installed dev c++ from sourceforge. I've read to not use the bloodshed one.

    that is what I am using ( code::blocks) from geany, and GCC which I still use for quick write up to check something.
    thought CB did windows too though.
    OP what are U using ? windows compiler don't they cost money? hehe
