Hello I am really new in c++ but I read a lot of books.
But I haven't found in any book how to add an interface to my program.
So, what is necessary that the program to not run in the windows console?

Define "interface". Do you mean an "interface" as is commonly used in Java (i.e. certain classes must implement certain methods) or do mean "Graphical User Interface" as opposed to a console program?

If the latter, what operating system are you using?

There are many different ways to give you're C++ program a Graphical User Interface (GUI). If you're writing just for windows, you can use C++.net to take advantage of windows forms or WPF. There are also many libraries like wxwidgets, qy, radC++, etc.

If you want some information that's actually helpful that tells you about some of these libraries, see this and list of free C++ gui libraries.

For C++ QT is a decent library and it is somewhat portable (it's distributed by Nokia now). There's a free pdf of a decent book(released by the author under Open Publication) at http://www.qtrac.eu/marksummerfield.html (the author's website).
He steps you through (and they are nice manageable steps) making a very small scale spreadsheet program.

There are lots of other options, like wxWidgets (I've never used but a lot of people like). Of course there's the whole gamut of Windows GUI tools -- Win32API (not the best place to start if you haven't done it before), MFC (which is C++ based), .NET (but you need managed C++ and this is a whole different animal).

the first thing to do is search 4 sum books online.. or search 4 sum stuff related to C++, u'll surely get to know

Exactly. I know that took a lot out of you.
