    Ok I know this is a stupid question but I am not sure how to correct this. Ok I am reading a book on "C" and it starts with some simple codes that open up a dos window and display some text. Well the question is how the hell do I keep the dos window open. As far as I can tell all my scripts work but it flashes so quick that I can hardly get a glance. It is begining to annoy me. Anyone know how to stop dos from closing after it runs the script?

    Thanks for all that reply,

    Try to read a value from i/o at th end of your code ( getch(), scanf(...) )....read MSDN for more information about these funcion.

    try this(works in java, which is much the same)

    make sure u initialized the input stream thingy(IStream in java)

    then add to the end before closing the brackets 'Input.pause();'

    that will leave the window open until u hit return


    or put in while(true){}

    which will leave the window open until it is closed manually

    you need to run the programs from a dos window not from "run" or the built in run


    i.e go to start->run and type cmd

    then change to your directory and run the program

    I will look into keeping a command window open (it is a windows thing not your program)
