If I've understood you right, you want to show something on the screen, don't you?

First of all, include this line just after the includes at the top of the program:
using namespace std;

Then, in your program, if you want to show a message, just use:
cout << "This message will appear on the screen";

And if you want to show the value of some variable, for example:

int tutorials = 5;
Your program here...
cout << "The number of tutorials is: " << tutorials;
It'll show: The number of tutorials is: 5

Hope it helps :D

You should compile the program using a compilator.
I use Dev-C++, it's free.
Save your program as example.cpp for example, and then compile it using a compilator.
If the program is correct, an *.exe file will appear where you've saved the *.cpp one.
To execute the program, just open the *.exe file :lol:

Thougth I´d add something, ´cause when I compile only text, the window pops up and closes immidiately, before i even can see what the output is. So, at the end of my code, I simply insert:

system("pause");

Then the program waits for user to press a key before it shuts down.

Yes, that happens sometimes.
You can also use
cin.get(); cin.get()
at the end of your code, so the window remains open until you press a key two times.

And you can also use :
#include <iostream.h>
#include <conio.h>
int main()
{
cout<<"Text"<<endl;
getch();
return 0;
}

Yes, lots of possibilities there :P

I'm closing this topic as the original question has been answered.
