C++ help? how to make this wait until key press.?
im writing a basic C++ code and it has no errors, but at the end i wrote std::endl; to make it pause for a key stroke, but it wont, is there an answer to this? Im using visual studio 2005, and writing in its C++, so i think its the same as visual C++ 2005.
here is the code:
// tutorial.cpp : Defines the entry point for the console application.
int _tmain(int argc, _TCHAR* argv)
// this is a comment
// this program will accept numbers and display their sum
// Enter data for variables
std::cout << "Enter a value for the first variable: ";
std::cin >> num1;
std::cout << "Enter a value for the second variable: ";
std::cin >> num2;
// Add the two numbers together
total = num1 + num2;
// Display the result
std::cout << "The sum of the numbers = " << total << "\n";
std::cin.get(); //wait for keypress
it should in theory wait till i press a key, but i entered 5, thenhit enter, entered 5 again, and hit enter and i coul;d barely see a flash of 10 before it closed.
