    Question My program closes immediately

    Hello everyone,

    I'm new to this forum and just started learning C++. I have Windows XP and my compiler is Bloodshed DEV/C++ 4. I started the tutorial and tried to compile the first program. Once I opened the .exe file, it closes immediately, but if you're very fast, you can see that it does output 'Hello world!'. I really don't understand what went wrong, so I included the .cpp file. I hope that anyone could help me.

    You got to have something to make it stop for you to read the text. Include <cstdio> and right before you do your "return 0" add in getchar()

    #include <cstdio>
    #include <iostream>
    int main()
       std::cout<<"Hello, world!";
       return 0;

    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.
