  Description: Runs starwars

#include <iostream.h> 
#include <windows.h>

int sim_yesno;

int main()
    cout << "Press 1 the enter to start starwars: "; //Asks for simulation confermation
    cin >> sim_yesno; //Gets confermation
    if(sim_yesno == 1)  // if confermation yes: then continue
    system ("telnet towel.blinkenlights.nl");  //Runs the star wars.
    system ("Pause"); // pause befor quit
    return 0;

doesn't work on MS-Windows os.

Worked for me on XP, with VC++ 2005 express. After dropping the ".h" from iostream header.

Well, I can't say the system(pause) worked, I killed it long before the movie finished.
