    Need a bit of help

    K guys, im new here and also new to programming, yesterday i went and did some research on C++ and it looked like a nice programming language to learn, so i made my first program, the problem is i want the program not to shut down when i press enter, so say if i made the program say: Hello World.
    When i press Enter after that i want it to say,: This is ur first program. And when i press Enter after that i want it to say,: Good job on making it.
    U see my problem, i would appreciate help... ty

    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.

    Read Salem's link, then attempt somthing like:

    #include <iostream>
    using std::cout;
    using std::endl;
    int main ( void )
       cout << "TEXT";
       getchar(); // wait key press
       cout << "TEXT";
       cout << "TEXT";
       return 0;
    Read some beginners tutorials on this site to get started. Although they do move at a fast pace, so I would also advise a good beginners book. Check out the book recomendations on this site for more information. You will need a solid understanding of the basics before you can move on the more complacated things in the language.
