Prevent Console Application from closing to fast...
« on: May 25, 2005, 01:40:18 pm »
Hi there,

i'm very new to programming in C (new to programming anywhere).
How can i prevent the console from closing very fast after running a programm (for instance when i compile "hello world" and let it run i see the console popping up but it closes so fast i can't recognize anything...)

Thanks for you tipps and advices!

Matthias

P.S.: Sorry for my bad englisch!

The simple solution is:

Code: [Select]

int main()
{
  std::string str;
  std::cout << "Hello world!" << std::endl;
  std::cin >> str;
  return 0;
}

Code: [Select]

#include <iostream>

int main()
{
std::cout << "Hello world!" << std::endl;
system("pause");
return 0;
}


might work fine as well...

Ok, the new console_runner you supplied adds this feature.
-Now I ask, is there any way to close the console automatically when my application terminates - some settings in the environment for instance?

It seems that the supplied console_runner.exe with the finalbeta setup was screwed. Sorry guys.

LOL! I never expected this. It was always the other way around  :lol:
Anyway, submit a feature request and I 'll make it configurable.

Feature request submitted...
I believe that it would really begin to annoy me if I had to press enter after each run. -So for now I'll use the "screwed" version of the console_runner  :)
