Learn how to use cin.get()

Published on: January 28, 2011

In this tutorial, I show you how to use cin.get() in C++ instead of system("pause") to end your programs in a very simple way using an older program. I don't get into anything too heavy or too new.

cin.get() is far more efficient and unlike system("pause"), this should work in non-windows environment without a problem. If you have any questions about the program or functions in general, feel free to ask.

I hope you enjoy the video and if you have any requests feel free to let me know.

Remember to checkout the Codesnip below to review the C++ code yourself! Feel free to copy the code, but I ask that you please provide credit if you leave the code unchanged when you use it.

using namespace std;

int main()
 int max, random_number, i;
 cout << "Please input max integer: ";
 cin >> max;

 random_number = (rand () % max) + 1;

 cout << random_number << endl;
