Ive read a begginers guide to programming and tried creating a small program, I used the input function. Now as soon as I open the program it goes into dos and asks me the question, and when i type in an anwser, dos shuts down. Now its really starting to bug me. If you could give me some advice I would be real grateful. The program I wrote is below; -

It's no bother. The problem is that the DOS window is closing
immediately upon your program exiting. Annoying, isn't it. :-)

One way to "fix" this is to add an input line at the end of your program
like this:

end = raw_input("Press a key to end...")

This will leave the window open until you press a key.
