Hey,
   I just started learning c programming. I started learning with Visual studio.net and ther was an option there that has "start without debugging" under debugging. The thing is i can't use that Visual studio anymore(I'm now trying to use visual studio express 2005 beta 1, or Dev-C++), and other compilers don't have start without debugging...
  So.. now when i run a program straight from windows, the program just runs and the console goes away almost immediately.

QUESTION: is there something i can put in my code that stops the console from closing when the program ends.(or is there something i can do to Visual studio express to allow the console to stay.)

THanks

#include <conio.h>

int main()
{
    // Do something
   getch();
}

That should solve your problem.

getch() waits for a character from standard input. So that causes the console to stay until you press a key.
