    Hey everyone,
    I have just started to teach myself C, and i have been going through the exercises in this book and they have this script

    #include <stdio.h>
    	int age;
    	float weight;
    	char first[15], last[15];
    	printf("\nWhat is your first name?");    /* A prompt*/
    	scanf(" %s", first);
    	printf("What is your last name?");
    	scanf(" %s", last);
    	printf("How old are you? ");
    	scanf(" %d", &age);
    	printf("How much do you weigh? ");
    	scanf(" %f", &weight);
    	printf("\nHere is the information you entered:\n");
    	printf("Name; %s %s\n", first, last);
    	printf("weight; %.0f\n", weight);
    	printf("Age; %d", age);
    	return 0; 
    Now when i run the program it lets me enter all my information but it does not display the information i entered

    am i doing something wrong or is the book just missing a step

    First, you should read the "Before you make a query" thread BEFORE you make a query. That way you could put in your own code tags and I wouldn't have to be yo' mama and do it for you.

    Secondly, I suspect your program is working, but the window is closing before you see the output. This is normal. If you want to see your output, either run the program in a command window, or put a breakpoint at the "return 0", or put a statement such as "getchar ();" immediately before the return 0.
