Hi, All experts

  In my console program, I wrote
 ""
 cout << "Press enter to continues";
 anykey = getchar();
 ""
I do not know why in VC++ 6.0 the cursor does not stay right after " press enter to continues..._ <--- cursor
.What it do is to move the cursor to the secod line ( after Press enter to continues) at the output screen.

anybody know how........

Thank you.

Right.
And You'd use this for c++

cout<<"press enter"<<endl;

I'm sorry, wasn't the problem here that the cursor DID go down to the next line?

hi, all experts

  It still not work! it work with Borland C++ but not MSVC++
  The cursor still stay at the bottom of the "Press anykey to continues" *** not the one the came with the MS VC++ compiler

Thank You all
