Until recently, I have been able to use the system("pause"); command without any issue. Now when using it, it returns an error indicating that it is the first time I am using it and it has not been declared. Can someone help me figure out why I am getting this error now?

In function `int main()':
44 `system' undeclared (first use this function)
(Each undeclared identifier is reported only once for each function it appears in.)

For using the system function, you need to #include <stdlib.h>

Or in case it's C++ :

    #include <cstdlib>

That's what I forgot to do. The ever basic #include . Ugh. Thanks as always Infinity!
