Hi, yes, I'm aware of that. I've got C programs like that. But this C++ program does not generate any screen output or asks for user input. The C equivalent of string test="Test"; is char test ="Test"; No prints or user input whatsoever..

Sent by: c400-l-admin@midr ange.com 03/12/2002 18:28 Please respond to c400-l Whenever C programm generate output to screen (printf in plain C), you get "Output screen" and that strange text "Press ENTER to end terminal session". I think, that this also appears, if you use things like getch or scanf - whatever requiring user input from keyboard. I work on 4.3/4.5 with plain C, so I do not understand what means string test="TEST".....
