    Redirection problem in C++

    I'm using Quincy 2005 as my compiler in C++.

    I was asked to create a program that READS FROM a separate data.txt file. We are not allowed to use fscanf so i used the redirection method in Quincy (Tools->Options->Run->Use this: "input<data.txt") Now, the program is working but for some reason it automatically closes and is not asking whether to "press any key to continue", since the redirection emits all keyboard inputs and closes automatically. As I said before, the program works but it closes too fast that I can't even see what the output is (I know its working because I used the cmd prompt). Is there any way to prevent it from automatically closing so that I can see the output

    Thank you

    Run your program from a separate command prompt window.

If they do, I ask them to find the smallest example that exhibits the problem and send me that. Mostly, they then find the error themselves. "Finding the smallest program that demonstrates the error" is a powerful debugging tool.

    Per Quincy: Simple free C/C++ programming IDE for Windows
    FYI: "Quincy 2005" is an IDE not a compiler; it uses a version the MinGW GCC as the Compiler.
