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.

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
