Working my way through Koenig & Moo "Accelerated C++"

  If that book really teaches you to do that, throw it away and buy a
better one.

That's in "C++ for Dummies". Koenig and Moo assume that
somebody who knows what he is doing has set your computer up
for you. If you run their programs as they show on the page,
the .exe opens and closes in a tenth of a second. You've got
to do something to hold it there long enough to see it. If you
think this is bad, what should I do better/

Find out how to use your IDE? Or use a different one? Erik
Wikstr=F6m has posted how to use Visual Studio correctly. If
you're IDE doesn't have something similar, it's time to change
it (and Visual Studio is free, as are some others).

(Once you start programming professionally, of course, you'll
drop the IDE in favor of more powerful tools. But while
learning... having to learn all of those tools just to compile a
C++ program is perhaps biting off too much at once.)
