    Keeping the console window open


    I'm programming in "C", and using the
    Dev.C++ v4 compiler. On set up I've
    unchecked the box:"Compile for win32 (no console").

    For new projects I choose console apps.

    Question? How do I keep the console window

    Thank you,

    Do u mean how to avoid the window quickly closing after you app runs? There are several ways, some are suggested at the FAQ too. You can use ways such as:



    system( "PAUSE" );

    And of course info like this would NEVER be hidden away in the FAQ ...and if you need it more specific than that how about Pausing the screen - FAQ

    You can also run your programs from the console than you can see their outputs, too.

    When I close my eyes nobody can see me...
