I am just starting to learn C++, and recently bought the Borland C++ compiler (5.02)
At school, we have an earlier version of Borland (I think 3. something) which, when you compile and run a program, it executes it in a windows envireonment, and does not close the window when the program is done running. It simply says it's "inactive."
Now that I have 5.02 at home, I wrote a simple program to try it out, and the Borland 5.02 I have at home opens the program in a DOS window and closes it out immediately after it is done running. I can't even see the message I wrote to myself!
So what is going on?
