View Full Version : need c++ compiler
I was looking around for a good freeware or shareware c++ compiler. Anyone know of any good ones?
I am also having this prob with my current compiler
whenever i tell the thing to run some program that i wrote (the hello world thing -- my first) A quick window pops up for about half a sec says hello world and dissappears is there any way i can make that windo stay for longer or is that just the way it is?

I think there are free C++ compilers. There's a catch(always-arrgh) they're Linux progs.
Gnu gcc can be compiled just fine on NT. Also, there are some sites that offer pre-compiled versions of it.

There is also the DJGPP compiler. It's free, but DOS based. But it works pretty well (not the best, mind you, but pretty well.)

I had the same problem with my C++ progs. At the end of it they just disappeared. The only way I found around it was to open it in command prompt. As for compiling I used this unix shell my brother got me.
You need to set up a loop after the program displays the data and be sure there is a keypress programmed in to end the loop.
Better yet, there should be the equivalent of a function called "pause" that will suspend the process untill a key is pressesd.
yea i read the helpsection of my current compiler and it gave me some System <Pause>; command to put at the end of the program. Now the window stays open till i press any key.
I was just wondering another thing, this command my compiler told me:
is this an actual command in C++ or is this just a command that works only on my compiler?
BTW thx for teh previous answers:D
