I'm wondering how to remove the stuff at the end of the console, where it says the execution time, press any key to continue, and what the process returned. I am using Codeblocks.

As well, I am wondering when I type in a letter, (for example, the letter h), it returns the number 51276552. Is there a way that I can restrict the user to only input a number?

The code is:

#include <iostream>

using namespace std;

int main()
{
    int years;

    cout << "How old are you? ";
    cin >> years;
    cout << "You are " << years * 12  << " months old.";
}

In your code, it doesn't "return" a large number, it actually fails (since "h" isn't a number), and the number in years is uninitialized garbage.

You can check cin for an error condition via if (cin.fail()) { ... } , and if you want to restrict the user, create a loop that reports the error, re-prompts the user and re-inputs the desired value until the value is valid.

Run the program directly from the console. It's CodeBlocks itself that's outputting that stuff.
