how to stop command prompt windows from closing while using fortran

(OP)
hello, i'm pretty new to fortran (started using it today actually). i understand fortran doesn't have it's own gui, command prompts are used instead. however, i suffer from command prompt windows keep closing immediately the code is finished reading. how can i prevent this?

RE: how to stop command prompt windows from closing while using fortran

Instead of stopping with STOP, stop with PAUSE followed by STOP.

RE: how to stop command prompt windows from closing while using fortran

I agree with IRstuff...

How do you start the program? do you double click on the executable and let it launch its own terminal?...if so, that's probably why it goes away as soon as the program terminates.

Try:
  • launching a DOS terminal by yourself, first
  • add the path to the executable to PATH
  • "cd" to the working directory
  • run program by typing name of executable
