    And why go through all that timer code? Why not just add at the bottom of main() before the return the following:
        return 0;
    for C++
        return 0;
    for C

    A simple and direct screen pause.

    The "timer code" is a really bad idea because it thrashes the cpu in a busy wait by calling clock() over and over.
