I've never coded in c before but have to for a class that I'm taking. I'm using miracle c as my compiler but am having a strange error when I try to execute a program. The program executes, but the command window instantly closes so I can't even tell if the program is working as it should. This seems like it should be a fairly simple problem to solve, but is really annoying!

thanks,
nick clark

It's not an error. Windows automatically closes console applications once they're finished. To pause the program before it quits (so you can view the console output), put getchar(); at the end of your program.

write getchar(); before return. That should pause until you press enter if no characters was left behind in the stdin.
If you can change compiler. Miracle C is broken. Look here for some suggestions

The only Miracle is the people who actually pay to use it.
Miracle C is nothing but trouble.

u can also getch() but it doesnot work in some compiler.

Why do people insist on making bad suggestions, especially after a good suggestion has been made?
