    Then you used it wrong. Did you include stdlib.h? Also, have you looked at our FAQ and read why this is a ........ poor reason to use the system function?
    My best code is written with the delete key.

    Is "pause" a valid command on the OS you're running now?
    system( "pause" ); is OS specific. Check the FAQ.
