    d problem dat i m facing is the abrupt termination of C++ when i execute a program…let me explain in detail..

    i run a program..smtimes it runs well and fine widout any problem…but
    wen i exit the program the TC.exe terminates abruptly sad.gif ….(it also hapens at time wen a fatal error occurs..hwever its natural… smile.gif )

    thnk d reason behind mite be like dis : during d program

    What operating system are you using?
    I worked on Win 98, 2000 and XP. turbo C/C++ compiler has no problems while using on win98. But if you write code which try to directly access any I/O port like COM port, then it causes problems. Because win 2000 and XP has some restrictions on accessing these resources.

    So if this is causing the problem for you…then I would advise you to use either win98 or change your program in a way that can safely access I/O devices.

    Or you could explain any situation when your program crashed, was that TC.exe file itself or you were trying to compile and run any program on TC?

    I have jsut compiled and run your program, and it works fine with me. I am using the same version of borland turbo c compiler on windows XP. It didn’t give me any errors or warning message and the program remained stable. Turbo C neither crashed nor closed with or without any warnings.
    What operating system do you use?

    nd yaaa…i m using a Borland  Turbo C compiler of version 3.0….thot it mite help u…

    Please read the forums guidelines, as people would not understand this language,  it looks like some sort of chatting language :P
    But I would advise not to use it because it looks a bit odd and one can’t understand it easily.

    Well it’s quite strange then, because I am using the same compile, OS version. Do you exit the program when you press ‘0’? And then press Enter kay to exit the program?

    I did the same thing, it worked fine here…

    May be anyone else might help you out here. For me this program works fine.

    I did not talk about smilies in the post, infact they are to show the feelings. I am talking about the language like

    You could have written it like
    and i am using windows xp SP2
    How ever it did not work even in windows 2000…
    and one more thing..you are saying its working fine through your compiles

    This way it looks quite readable.

    Yes I got the same error, this is not the compiler or OS error. Actually the variable choice in your program is of type int. And you use that variable to get the input from the user to make the decision and navigate through the menu. So now the problem is when enters character instead of an integer value, it crashes your program.

    So the solution to your problem is that you will have to check this input first, whether the choice is of type integer or character. If its of character type then ignore it, as you are doing cin.ignore(); but you will have to implement it properly. As cin.ignore(); ignores characters only.

    Assalamualaykum Mohammed Saqib….

    This is not the problem i think…. The Bhoot and I work together in a same institute…. Its also the same case with Char type choice i/p…

    So i think there must be something else behind this cumbersome problem.
